STEP: 1

From the search bar open service app and then find out window installer and start/restart it.  

STEP: 2

Run cmd as an administrator and excute these commands one by one.

  • msiexec /unreg
  • msiexec /regserver
  • regsvr32 vbscript.dll

And then restart your system.

I hope this on will help you...

This had been troubling me for a while, there was no right click 'Run as administrator' option for me.

I resolved this by running CMD as Administrator, then launching the installer from within CMD!

Worked a treat! Hope this helps.

Can't hurt to try the Microsoft tool System File Checker:

Hi @dcalvin

Would you be able to provide more details? What exact version of Splunk were you trying to install? Did you get a message that said "Splunk Enterprise setup wizard ended prematurely..."?

Yes, I was trying to install the Enterprise Trial ver.

splunk-6.2.2-255606-x64-release.msi

I have it on the desktop, so installing locally.

Splunk>Enterprise windows comes up and it starts to run. Validating... copying...

Then rolls back the action...

Then ends prematurely because of an error and system has not been modified.
Click finish to end... blah blah...

I am domain admin and admin of this pc. I tried to redown the app, so pretty sure its a valid complete file.

Really want to evaluate this app. Thanks for any help.

Just to confirm two more points: is this Windows running in English? Do you have an administrators group with a localized name? There have been Answers postings that point in that direction, although I suspect it doesn't apply in your case.

Can you supply the MSIxxxxxx.log file? This is normally found in %temp%. There should also be a splunk.log file (sometimes Windows puts it in the directory right above %temp%).
