Setup.Exe Starts And Just Closes.

  • 0

So, I am trying to prep an image of Windows 10 for deployment. Part of the process is installing apps that are commonly used, obviously. We have a 6yr old application that is used heavily here and there is no newer version of the 32-bit software. Its DoD software and am not getting answers.

Question is, has anyone seen where you see the installshield startup..and then it just closes. No matter what I try to do including Compatibility Mode. Anyone seen this behavior? Its 32-bit software on a 64-bit OS. Thanks.

  1. All 64bit versions should be able to run true 32bit programs BUT many 32bit programs use 16bit installers which cannot run on a 64bit Windows machine. Compatibility mode will not help you here. A 32bit Windows installation may help, Windows 7 possibly more than 10 and XP absolutely will do it but you will need an older machine to run it.

  2. You can also install a Virtual machine and install XP within the virtual machine and install your software within that.
