Issue Details

I have Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 SSP USB sticks. I am trying to restore a Win7 machine that crashed, and the install fails from both media. The error message (no number given) is an internal system error occurred. Access is denied. The destination folders are with full permissions for the administrator rights of the user doing the install. The installer runs as far as asking all the questions about what to install, serial number, destinations, etc then fails. The first panel after the fail should be the agree to rights panels, but there is no text in the window. Clicking the button that would read I agree moves on, but the error recurs and no installation happens. I have rebooted the PC and tried again with no improvement or change.


There are a few issues that could be causing this and so there are a few steps to try:

1. Reboot the computer
2. Uninstall and Reinstall all NI software
3. Install NI software from the NI Website
4. Contact NI Support
