We were in the process of bringing our entire development/deployment environment up to Build 3554.
We've been able to install it cleanly on multiple machines. However, one of the development machines keeps causing us some issues. It gets through the "Copying new files" portion, then it registers the ODBC components and gets to the part where it says it's going to migrate existing SQL Anywhere databases. At that point it stops and everything starts moving backwards with a "Rolling back action" message. When it's done rolling back, it throws a message up that says "The wizard was interrupted before SQL Anywhere 12 could be completely installed. Your system has not been modified. To complete installation at another time, please run setup again."
This has happened multiple times. I've made sure that we're not looking at any disk space issues. Have over 6GB available on the drive I'm installing this onto, and the OS drive has over 26GB available. I've made sure that nothing is running on the machine. Rebooted the machine to make sure there were not any files that were locked. No success.
Is there possibly a way to trace an install to see where it is running into problems? Would really like to clear this up since it is the last machine I need to upgrade.
Any information would be greatly appreciated!!
I have found using the SQL Anywhere silent install and the /L msiexec logging option helpful in diagnosing installation problems. The silent install simply makes it easy to repeat an installation. The logging will hopefully help in pinpointing the problem.
The various levels of verbosity offered by msiexec /L option and several examples are documented at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa367988.aspx.
