Installation problem with Ring Runner during XNA Framework install

Post  DragonRR on Wed Oct 30, 2013 4:37 pm

I thought I'd better note this because I've had a very strange problem which doesn't seem to be covered here. I got the GMG version.

During installation I was getting a failed message referring me to the log file which points to the XNA framework 4.0 not being installed (see below). It was in fact installed but I downloaded the latest package (just in case) here:

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=20914

And it recognised it was installed because I could remove and repair. Anyway I uninstalled at ran Ringrunner setup again.. Still failed. I then manually installed the downloaded framework which worked fine. Ran ringrunner setup again and it still failed! After more fiddling I found that the file included with ringrunner *seems* to be very slightly different in size to the file I had downloaded. I tried installing the ringrunner version manually and I got an error:

A network error occurred while attempting to read from the file:
C:\Users\myusername\Appdata\Local\Temp\VSDDA09.tmp\XnaFxRedist40\xnafx40_refresh_redist.msi

What's interesting about this is that the file the installer puts into the folder isn't called the file mentioned above, it is actually called:

xnafx40_redist.msi

So basically I think the installer is faulty.

I have manually installed ringrunner by extracting the zip to a temporary folder and running this file:

RingRunner.application

which downloaded 200+mb of data and installed itself on my system and it works! Phew.


Log extract:

Glad you got it working! Smile

I'll try and see if there is anything I can do to help this problem from popping up again.

Sorry for the inconvenience,

One thing I know for sure: You know more about software than I do. Or have more perseverance. Or both.
