Hi, I got the book yesterday from Kathy and Bert OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Study Guid I and II. So I'm trying to install the CD to check the exam and it's failing.. here are the errors and what i tried:

I put the CD and it didn't auto run, so as per readme in the CD I went to "Run" and ran it from there and here's the error that i got during installation:


Tried to run the Installer.exe manually.... and i got the same error... so what do i do? I pre-ordered this book in Amazon........

If the installer file is really damaged/corrupt, that's a serious issue. One you can't do anything about it. Your only option is to contact the publisher I guess. But i can't imagine McGraw-Hill created a CD with a corrupt/damaged file on it. That would be a true shocker! So it's probably something else. If you google on the error message you get some hits, mostly when installing Adobe AIR/Muse.

Any chance you can try it on a different computer/laptop, another operating system, running the installer from a hard disk (instead of optical drive),... so you might discover the actual cause of your problem.

I tried running it on the HD and it didn't work either, i wanted to stick to my laptop so i really needed to make this work. If any other windows 8.1 user runs into this (or anybody else for that matter) here's how I solved it:

Download Orca from Microsoft's page. Open the setup.msi file in Orca and under the "Property" table change the value of the "SHAREDADDINFOLDER" to "c:\".

Try again, this time it will work.

Cheers,
