[protege-discussion] Problem installing Protégé

Well, I tried installing protégé on my other laptop (Windows XP and not
Vista) and had the same problem with InstallAnywhere asking me always to
select a different location, and I tried downloading the non installer
version of 4.0 on my Vista laptop.  It took a very long time for version 4.0
to download.  After that, not having instructions on what to do next, I
tried opening “run”, which suggested I extract all compressed files in the
folder, so I did that but got 3 or 4 unspecified errors (e.g. Error
0x80004005).  I am ready to give up trying to install this
  I’ve been at it
for 2 days and can’t spend much more time.  Any additional suggestions?

Monica, are you running Windows Vista?


I know there were issues with the installanywhere installer on Vista.

These are (being?) resolved now with the newest version of installanywhere.


If you want a non installer version of Protege4.0 you can download it as a
zip from [1].

Hello there.  I have been trying to install Protégé but keep having this
problem: the pop-up window labeled “InstallAnywhere” gets to 99% of
completion and then it stops and says “Please select another location to
extract the installer to”.  I have tried numerous folders on my C drive with
the same result.  Any suggestions?  I have looked in the FQAs and didn’t
find a solution there.


I first tried installing Protégé 4.0 with Java VM.  I managed to download
files, but “install_protege.exe” wasn’t in any of them.  Since I then had
Java, I tried installing Protégé 4.0 without Java VM.  Same problem.  I have
just tried installing version 3.3.1 (basic) and the same thing happened.  I
always get to 99% of “InstallAnywhere” and then get that error asking me to
choose another location.


Thank you for any suggestions you may have.
