Windows 2003 Install Problem

Mon Aug 13, 2007 7:00 am

Hi All,

When I get to the point in the installation process of Installing the GPSGate Server, it gets almost done then I get the error message, "The system cannot find the path specified" Here is a snippet of the log file. Thanks for any assistance.

Hi,
From what directory/drive are you running the installer? The error could be caused by running it from a network path or mapped drive. Try with a simple C:\ path.

Fredrik

I'm installing it from a folder on the D drive. I tried moving it to the C drive as well and I'm getting the same error.

Do you have more than GpsGate running on the server?

Could you post your results of this command:
C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727>aspnet_regiis -lk

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.
50727\aspnet_regiis -lk
W3SVC/ 2.0.50727.0
W3SVC/599337821/root/ 2.0.50727.0

I have 2 website running on IIS and a mailserver on this server.

Ok. I'm afraid its your site-id (599337821) that causes the problem. Currently the installer, incorrectly, assumes the site ID to be 1 during the installation... We're working on fixing this right now, i.e it will be fixed in the next release.
But until then, you simply need to somehow change your setup to use site-id = 1.
Sorry about this :(

Regards,
Fredrik

Alright. I edited the IIS metabase for that particular site to make it 1 and it worked! Thanks for your help.

Update:
Starting from GpsGate Server 1.1 build 148 (released 24:th Aug) this problem should now be fixed. I.e you should be able to install regardless of your site-id/metabase path settings.

Fredrik
