Hi,

I am trying to install Alfresco Community Edition 3.2r on my PC at work (evaluation purposes), running Windows XP. We have flexible workplaces so all account information (like desktop folder, my documents and menu start stuff) are not stored on the PC but elsewhere on the network.

The installation fails as Alfresco (at least, that is my assumption) attempts to create a new folder in the start menu (but not for my account but for all accounts) and this fails of course. This is the error message (I just replaced the name of the server with xxxxxx, the rest is the original message):

Error in action ExecuteAction

Error in action InstallWindowsShortcut

can't create directory "//xxxxxxxxx/start$/programs/Alfresco Community Edition": permission denied
    while executing
"file mkdir $dir"
    (procedure "::InstallJammer::CreateDir" line 13)
    invoked from within
"::InstallJammer::CreateDir $dir "
    (procedure "::InstallJammer::actions::InstallWindowsShortcut" line 32)
    invoked from within
"::InstallJammer::actions::$component $this"
    while executing
"$obj execute"
    (procedure "::InstallJammer::ExecuteActions" line 62)
    invoked from within
"::InstallJammer::ExecuteActions $action -parent $id -conditions $eval"
    (procedure "::InstallJammer::actions::ExecuteAction" line 35)
    invoked from within
"::InstallJammer::actions::$component $this"
Error in action ExecuteAction

Error in action InstallWindowsShortcut

    invoked from within

    while executing

    (procedure "::InstallJammer::ExecuteActions" line 62)

"::InstallJammer::ExecuteActions $action -parent $id -conditions $eval"
    (procedure "::InstallJammer::actions::ExecuteAction" line 35)
    invoked from within
"::InstallJammer::actions::$component $this"
    while executing
"$obj execute"
    (procedure "::InstallJammer::ExecuteActions" line 62)
    invoked from within
"::InstallJammer::ExecuteActions $id -when $when"
    (procedure "::InstallJammer::RaiseEventHandler" line 79)
    invoked from within
"::InstallJammer::RaiseEventHandler  .wizard"
    (command bound to event)

There are 3 options on the error window and whichever I click, the setup "hangs" at the "create uninstall" step. Anyone had this problem before and solved it?

Thanks a lot,
Jan
