Splunk 7.0 installation failed to complete

Engager

I am upgrading to Splunk 7.0. The installer hangs and does not complete.
Running Win10 1703 on vmware 12

looking for help

Explorer

i had the same issue with splunk 6.6.3

the issue was a windows registry key blocking it

so windows thinks its already installed

you need to find the registry key and remove it and it will work

It turns out that 6.6 and 7.0 would not install. I added IIS components to win10 and it finally installed and would run.
thank you for your help!!

Hi,

To assist further we're going to need an Installer log. The command to use is:
msiexec /i splunk.msi /l*vx msiexec.log

If you can get us a copy of the resulting msiexec.log, and also %TEMP%\splunk.log (if it exists), hopefully we'll be able to determine what is going on.

Cheers,

Hi kevinmanson,

Is this also 7.0? And are you specifying a Deployment Server?

Cheers,
