Hi,

I've been using the great nmap tool for quiet a long time
under Linux.
Now I wanted it to run under Windows 2000 too.

But now I've got a severe problem after nmap
installation. Please help me.

I checked M$ Knowledge base and support. But that
didn't help.
I also googled around. It seems to be a quite new
problem with Windows-Installer.
I'm very interested to get this fixed.

0. I'm running M$-Windows-2000, SP1, Windows-
Installer V2.00.2600.2, (msiexec dated 01/26/2000)

1. Installing nmap-3.00-win32 and nmapwin_1.3.0.exe
worked (and still works) fine.

2. Starting M$-Office Products afterwards (they needs
Windows-Installer):

I get an error message talking about a link problem,
Windows-Installer is not accesible.

3. Event-Viewer-Log:
Source: MsiInstaller
Event-ID: 1014
Descr.: "The Windows Installer Proxy Informations are
not correctly registered."

4. Trying to re-install nmapwin_1.3.0.exe fails:
=> While "Configuring Windows-Installer"
=> Install-Shield-Error 1607: "Unable to install
InstallShield Scripting Runtime"

Installing Win2000 SP2, SP3 did not help.

I still can run nmap and nmap-win (no problem at all) but
none of the M$-Office products.
Windows Installer Service still runs.

This problem seems to be similar to those described in
the following Requests:

andre_ferraz
590286 Same problem as the other person * 2002-08-02
11:07 nobody nobody
593032 InstallShield Error under 2kAS SP2

Maybe it would be useful to get the Class-ID for the
registry so I can remove some keys?

Thank you all for your attention!

    Try v1.3.1. It has a new InstallShield version, with a lot of
    patches applied.
