View Full Version : Error 1609

Our installer has been created in english, but we are looking to distribute in France, Germany & Spain. When our software was tried installing on Germany came up against error 1609,an error occured while applying security settings. Powe user is not a valid group. He is installing on a German version on Win XP.
What is the quick workaround for this. Is it just translating the word ' power users ' in german and typing it or is there some other way. A quick response will be appreciated. :)

Many Thanks,

I do not know an easy way to use Power Users. But what i do know is that the installer will automatically use the ID SID for Everyone and for Administrators. So basically you could substitute Everyone for Power Users and it should work. Beyond that you have to get into writting a DLL to handel this.
