I encrypt files that are downloaded, thus, this was encrypted when I downloaded.
I unencrypted it and was able to install just fine.
Steps to Reproduce the Behavior
On a computer running Windows XP Professional, follow these steps:
- Right-click the Temp folder (typically C:\Documents and Settings\User Profile\Local Settings\Temp), and then click Properties.
- Click Advanced.
- Click to select the Encrypt contents to secure data check box. Click OK.
- Install the .NET Framework.
Do not encrypt the Temp folder until after the .NET Framework Setup has completed.
My solution (cebaehren):
on the program to install click Properties -Security tab -Add - (Everyone)-- etcetera
Thats allow to install the downloaded software
To protect my home system from non-IT family members, I encrypt everything under my user account.
I've just been able to resolve the '2755 110' issue by removing the NTFS encryption attribute on the install package.
Seems NTFS encryption tricks the installer into thinking the source file does not exist. Yet another MS oversight (YAMSO).
1. just go to the folder where the .msi file is found and right click -> properties -> advanced -> Uncheck the box: Encrypt content to secure data.
In my case the path of the .msi was C:\Documents and Settings\myUser\Application Data\Sun \Java\jdk1.6.0_10
2. Run the JDK again and it will work.
Note: If it does not work just go the Sun folder instead and do the same as explained above and select all the subfolder and files before you click apply/ok
How to repeat: With Windows XP: Right-click "mysql-essential-4.1.11-win32.msi" Choose Properties Choose Advanced ( on the General tab which is open by default ) Check "Encrypt Contents to Secure Data" Choose "OK" and "OK" to encrypt the msi installer. Run "mysql-essential-4.1.11-win32.msi" Installation will fail with "Internal Error 2755".
Unencrypt "mysql-essential-4.1.11-win32.msi" Run "mysql-essential-4.1.11-win32.msi" Installation succeeds.
Google says that this error occurs when one runs the installer from a shared drive.
Is this the case? Is your user profile on a shared drive?
Nope, the MSI is on my desktop, user profile is local to the laptop. All this was on a local SSD.
