Can't install xampp

Postby doheja07 » 12. January 2010 20:41

Hi. I am trying to install Xampp 1.7.3 on Windows vista, but keep running into problems.

If I tell it to create shortcuts, I get an error that says "Failed to create COM object 'Scripting.FileSystemObject': invalid syntax in C:\xampp\setup_xampp.bat on line 264
Stack trace:
#0 C:\xampp\setup_xampp.bat on line(264): com->com('Scripting.FileS...', NULL, 65001)
#1 C:\xampp\setup_xampp.bat on line(437): setup_XAMPP::doShortcuts()
#2 C:\xampp\setup_xampp.bat on line(493): setup_Xampp::Run()
#3 {main}"

If I tell it not to create shortcuts, I can move on. However, when I get to the question about making a portable xampp without drive letters, I get another error. I doesn't matter what answer I give. The error says " Failed to create COM object 'Scripting.FileSystemObject': invalid syntax in C:\xampp\install\package__xampp.php on line 19
Stack trace:
#0 C:\xampp\install\package__xampp.php(19): com->com('Scripting.FileS...', NULL, 65001)
#1 C:\xampp\install\package__xampp.php(102): relocate__xampp::relocateShortcut()
#2 [internal function]: relocate__xampp::Run()
#3 C:\xampp\install\package__xampp.php(139): call_user_func(Array)
#4 C:\xampp\install\package__xampp.php(161): relocate_XAMPP::Run()
#5 {main}
Error: relocating XAMPP not successful."

How would I go about fixing this so I can get xampp installed?

Did you right click on your command and "run as administrator"

Hum... I had no problem installing. Maybe you can try 1) turn off any firewalls or antivirus software or/and download a new installation package. I used the zip file and put it into c:/xampp

I just turned off my firewall and antivirus program and got the same results. I've downloaded the xampp files several times as both the zip file and the exe file. I always get the same result. I was able to install xampp 1.7.1 on my computer without any problems earlier this year and I was able to install 1.7.2 on the family computer without any problems. But as soon as I delete 1.7.1 from my computer so I can install 1.7.3, I start to have problems, I don't understand it.

Are you logged in to Vista as an administrator or better still a Secret Supper Administrator and have you disabled UAC - User Account Control - then reboot.

You may have to start from scratch by deleting the current created xampp folder but first make sure there is no residue from the previous deletion of your earlier versions (do a registry search for apache and mysql - did you make sure that there were no XAMPP components running and that no ticks were in the Svc boxes before deleting the folders and that the XAMPP Control Panel was also closed. then after the above reboot try and install again to the C:\ drive when asked.

I get an error that says "Failed to create COM object 'Scripting.FileSystemObject':

"Windows Script" is missing on your box.

Make sure not to install it into C:\Program Files; there is a known bug in Vista when installing XAMPP there.
