I develop the MSI package, so I run into these mysterious "installation
interrupted" problems quite frequently -- generally due to errors that never
make it into the code that you wind up running.

There isn't any way I know to diagnose this sort of problem without more
information.  Fortunately, it is easy to get more information.  From a
command prompt, give the following command:

msiexec /i dbt-1006beta6.msi /L*v install.log

This will run an installation just as before, but will log some details to a
file called install.log.  If you send that file to me after you've clicked
the "Finish" button, then I can generally figure out what's going on.

Subject: [duxhelp] Workstations that share an Activation installation

I just attempted to install the new Beta 6 and found I can't get
installation method to work for me.  To be honest the only Beta I have
installed to date previously was Beta 1.  With Beta 1 I was able to make the
"Workstations that share an activation" method work.  Now that I am trying
to install in a new location with the new server image created with msiexec
/a it starts the installation gets most of the way through and then fails
with an installation interrupted error.  I am not sure if I am doing
something different, or if something has changed, or if I am just having a
"stupid day" and am overlooking something.  I have tried the instructions
over and over again.


I have used the DNS name and IP number of the Server with no luck.
