Installation of Desktop Syncing Client fails

Hi there,

I’m working at the Johannes Gutenberg University and want to install the Seafile Desktop Syncing Client (with Shibboleth, Windows 7) on my computer. I downloaded the installation file (https://bintray.com/artifact/download/seafile-org/seafile/seafile-6.0.4-en.msi). I followed the installation dialog. However, when I press “Install” at the end I get the message:

“Seafile 6.0.4 Setup Wizard ended prematurely because of an error. Your system has not been modified. To install this program at a later time, run Setup Wizard again. Click the Finish button to exit the Setup Wizard.”

There’s no more information so I have no idea what to do. Any ideas?

Thank you!

Hi, you looked in the windows log files if there is an error …

Thank you very much! I didn’t know about the windows log files :smiley: Turns out it was a “1603” error. I changed the intallation path to another folder - now it works perfektly :slight_smile:
