    Access 2002 Dev Edition - Setup Failed (Access 2002 SP2)

    Hello again.,

    We are trying to install Office Developers Edition on a PC which has had Access XP installed on it, and we keep on getting the very discriptive "Setup Failed!" error message. We are doing a full install of Access but just leaving the default shared/office components. I have gone looking for log files to help debug this but with no success.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks in advance
    Nathan

    You write that the log files don't help. MSKB article How to use an Office XP Setup log file to troubleshoot Setup problems in Office XP has some tips on what to look for; also see the links at the bottom of the article.

    Thanks.,

    The problem actually turned out to be that in the new standard build for PC's in our organisation Local Administrators are not able to edit some parts of the local registry. Once someone with enough permissions logged in the CD loaded without problem.

    Cheers
