V 6.2.4 windows installer and Win XP

I am trying to install using the windows installer on Windows XP.
JDK 1.7 is installed (JAVA_HOME is set):
C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\Administrator>java -version java version "1.7.0"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0-b147) Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 21.0-b17, mixed mode, sharing)

However, the windows installer for 6.2.4 stalls at the step "Service installation"
the service "LogicalDOC" gets installed, but cannot be started manually

Deleting the logicaldoc folder and reinstalling does not help. As there is no file "C:\LogicalDOC\Uninstall.exe", I cannot perform the described uninstallation procedure.

Thanks in advance for any ideas

Something goes wrong, may be one software in this PC was blocking the service installation, try to install as full administrator.

here below some manual steps to uninstall from shell:

Code: Select all

C> sc remove LogicalDOC
C> sc stop LogicalDOC-DB
C> sc delete LogicalDOC-DB
C> rd /S /Q C:\LogicalDOC

Thanks for the uninst-script.

I executed the installation as a full admin when the problem occured.
When I try to start the service manually, Win XP blocks it for security reasons and asks for a user confirmation to override the block.
Afterwards LogicalDOC runs fine without problems.

It seems that Win XP also blocks starting the the service from the LogicalDOC inst routine, but without giving the user a chance for overriding the block.

best regards,
