No Install with XP SP 2?

  • Nobody/Anonymous


    I just set up my System with Service Pack 2 and wanted to install 7zip but the Setup.exe doesn't work - just nothing happens!
    Someone else encountered this behaviour?

      i upgraded my system with sp2, i had a few bug with new memory lock of sp2 (cannot write in memory)
      i reformated
      i use a cd with sp2 included and no problem with 7z313 (i installed on first try, no bug)

      I was also unable to install. I get a "Invalid command line parameter" message. Anyone know how to fix this? I need this program to install the far-cry coop mod... :(

        If it's just because you need to handle a 7z archive you could just install, winrar, izarc or zipgenius.
        Personaly i prefer izarc.

        I don't know reason.
        After rebooting 7-zip will be uninstalled fully.

      I am running SP2 and 7-Zip with no problems.

      Just enter 7-zip and the 7-zip installer to that stupid DEP (Data Execution prevention) whitelist, and it will work fine.

      It's working fine for me... I use 7-zip as my default file manager in Windows XP SP2, as a matter of fact.

      I'm using SP1, and it won't install - the installer runs without error, but no software is installed, as far as I can tell.
