Problem

Cannot install a new GroupWise system from a Microsoft Windows 2003 machine.

The Auto-run works, and selecting to install a new GroupWise system works. Selecting a language to display the ‘Software License Agreement’ works, too. After that, the installation program (X:\admin\install.exe) fails to load.

The Microsoft Windows Event Viewer (eventvwr.msc) displays an error in the ‘Application’ log:

Solution

Disable the ‘Data Execution Prevention’ feature in Windows (or enable only for ‘essential Windows programs and services’).

See Control Panel > System Properties > Advanced > Performance Settings > Data Execution Prevention.
