Mysql Duplicate Error message issue

Asked By 1430 points N/A Posted on -


I am on my hands to install MySQL on my machine, when the following error message came about:
MySQL Duplicate Error- An Error Occurred Executing the Microsoft VC++ Runtime Installer
MySQL Duplicate Error-
An Error Occurred Executing the Microsoft VC++ Runtime Installer.
I keep on trying to repeat the process again and again. I even used another set of the same version of an installer, but it did not work. I even reformatted my machine in the hope that there is some virus lurking on my system, but still I did not succeed.
I am now desperate in figuring out what might be the problem, I am even thinking of changing it to Postage SQL, but as much as possible I want to use MySQL. What might be the cause of this error? Could somebody out there help me with my situation?

Mysql Duplicate Error message issue


Hi Mikeallways,

You have to try to change into Postgre SQL than using MySQL. To begin with, check first if WSH is actually disabled or not. In DOS box, run wscript.exe. If it's disabled, you have to enable it.
To enable the WSH (Windows Script Hosts):
1. Start Registry Editor. Click Start – Run – regedit.
2. Open HKEY_CURRENT_USERSOFTWAREMICROSOFTWINDOWSSCRIPTHOSTSETTINGS. Make sure you are actually inside the settings folder.'
3. Right click Registry Editor. Select NEW-DWORD Value and call it "enabled". Double Click and set the "Value data" to 1.
4. In DOS box, Run wscript.exe if WSH had been enabled.
5. Install now PostgreSQL. Once the installation is complete, you can disable the WSH by changing the "Value data" to 0.
NOTE: This instructions are for Windows XP. Only PostgreSQL 8.4 is only applicable to the OS. Use Windows 32 bit only.
