Hi guys 
I have sort of a similar problem when i try to install wincc on virtual machine.
I get the error message MSI file initialization failed: ERROR_OPEN_FAILED

I tried to folow dec's advice and copy all the files to the root folder of the vm (C:/TempInst) but i get the same error.

I atached the install log

Thanks

Micky

Hello,

You use Windows 7 64-bit.
Which WinCC V11 version do you use?

As from version STEP 7 V11 SP2, STEP 7 V11 is enabled for a 64-bit operating system in the Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 operating systems.

Welche SIMATIC Software lässt sich unter 64-bit Betriebssystemen installieren?

Greetings

Recently I had few problems with installing programs on VMware, although not with TIA portal.

In all instances, problems were solved after downloading and installing the latest .NET Framework, directly from Microsoft site.

Best regards

The problem was solved. There was a problem with the installation package. It was corrupt. I received a new one and it works. 

Thank you all
