Installation Issue - Command View TL with Windows 2012 R2

Hi,

I'm trying to perform a fresh install of CVTL on Windows 2012 R2.  I've used CVTL 3.8 and 3.9, but both gives this error in the Install log:

 

creating template1 database in C:/Program Files (x86)/Hewlett-Packard/Command View TL/PostgreSQL/data/base/1 ... The current directory is invalid.

 

I've attached the Install log.  I would love to raise a case, but I see nowhere I can raise one :(.

 

Anyone have any ideas what is wrong?

Thanks.

 

Just to note, I successfully installed it on another Windows 2008 R2 server yesterday.  So, it looks like something is not working well with W2012 R2.

Hi,

I've identified the issue.  The installer put it's files in C:\Windows\Temp, which, for some reason, was not giving *full* access (maybe something with the OS image I have).

 

I reset the C:\Windows\Temp directory to give everybody full control on folders, files, and subfolder, and now the install succeeds.

 

Thanks to Process Monitor for identifying the issue :).
