Install Ad-aware Free

3 posts in this topic

I downloaded and tried to install ad aware free but the program refused to load. I got this message. "Error 1722.There is a problem with this Windows installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or the package vendor." I am able to install other programs without problem. I downloaded a second copy from your site, but it too failed to install. Running xppro sp2. Lots of memory and space available. I had been using an older version on this computer till about a week ago,but I accidentally uninstalled it. How do I reinstall? Thanks

esmo, if you meant that you were installing ad-aware 2007 and the installation failed, installing "windows script 5.6" might allow you to install the new ad-aware 2007, if you want to install it..

 

here is a link for "windows script 5.6":

here is a link to ad-aware 2007's "FAQ's", addressing the issue and which mentions that "windows script 5.6 is needed, apparently both for installing and for uninstalling the program:

p.s. the "problem" likely is not with the "windows installer", as the FAQ says, but rather that "windows script 5.6" has not been installed..

 

if you want to install the "old" ad-aware se 1.06r1, the link at "filehippo" that says "ad-aware 1.6" is the same program, only it uses the "old" installer as opposed to the new installer that lavasoft started using in february, '07, which is less problematic than the february '07 installer.. here is the link for it:
