View Full Version : Problems with setup.exe, wowexec and XP sp2

For some reason, when I try to run setup.exe on an XP SP2 machine, wowexec runs and the installer never runs - it just hangs.

What can cause this?

Almost two months and no replies?

I've tried several things to solve this problem and NOTHING WORKS.

I found, that my firewall program Kerio caused the same problem. After uninstalling the program and rebooting the pc the 16 bit install started to work.

Wowexec program need to run 16 bit applications (together with ntvdm) in Windows, and there are a lot of setup and installshield programs using these. Till that time I don't know the reason, but it looks there are some suit problems between these programs. Maybe the cause of Your problem is not the Kerio firewall.
