  1. Evernote support contacted with a suggest solution today, and it worked. I'm grateful to the support person, excited to have full functionality back, but very disconcerted with Evernote the company. My problem in various forms has been all over the forum going back to 4.x. An timely response would have solved more than a week of unhappiness. The suggestion is posted below for any with a similar issue. The clues were there -- it was a permission problem, I just did not know the right ones to give to what. So the solution was trivial (as things sometimes are). Again I am grateful to Korben in support and understand he is not personally accountable for the delay. The "fix" (I had done the method 2 to no avail before, but I did them in the suggested sequence) Method 1: Follow the steps below and check if it helps. Go to Start. Type %temp% in the search box and then click the Temp folder item that appears at the top. At the top of the Explorer window, in the address bar, click the folder to the left of Temp in the folder path (Local by default). In the folder list, right-click the Temp folder and then click Properties and then click the Security tab. Click the Edit button and on the next screen click Add. On the next screen, in the large text window type Everyone and then click Check Names - Everyone should then be underlined. Check the box for Full control under the Allow column, and then click OK, then OK again, and OK again to close all the windows. Method 2: Unregister and re-register the Windows Installer. a. ClickStart, click Run, type “msiexec /unregister” (without quotes), and then clickOK. Even if you do this correctly, it may look like nothing occurs. b. ClickStart, click Run, type “msiexec /regserver” (without quotes), and then clickOK. Even if you do this correctly, it may look like nothing occurs, or you may briefly see an hourglass. After you run this command, the operation is complete. c. Try to install the programs you wish to install and check.
  2. I have finally gotten past the per-user install error. I combed the registery, 1st redoing the suggestions on the formum (nothing found now), searching for the full product codes in the EvernoteSetup.log. This found several entries that I deleted (after yet another registry backup). Then searching for Evernote*. Then reboot. That worked. No longer get that error. So I have moved on to the next level of error's, also discussed in the forum: "Error reading from file C:\users\username\AppData\local\Temp\Evernote.msi. Verify that the file exists and you access it." In the EvernoteSetup.log the last entry is "Installation failed: (.\Bootstrapper.cpp:915) 0x643:Fatal error during installation." - It does exist. - Check all folder permissions, etc. and all are good. So, per another suggetion on the forum, I tried to execute that file (.msi) directly. Same errors. Moved the Evernote.msi to another folder. Error: "The installer has encountered an unxpected error installing this package. May indicate a problem with this package. The error code in 2203. Error in the EvernoteSetupMSI.log: "MSI © (A8:64) [07:48:12:289]: Product: Evernote v. 5.1 -- Installation failed. MSI © (A8:64) [07:48:12:290]: Windows Installer installed the product. Product Name: Evernote v. 5.1. Product Version: 5.1.0.2217. Product Language: 0. Manufacturer: Evernote Corp.. Installation success or error status: 1603." I have re-downloaded the product several times and this same error condition exists.

  3. Another day and no contact. I asked the chat support yesterday if there was an escalation mechanism in cases like this. The reply was no. When it is pasted to the level 2 support that is "escalated". There are no managers or any of the usual way to escalate. I am again amazed at this. I once again scanned the forums for any clues. Retied what I can find. The version of Evernote.msi is in the user\local\temp location -- when I tied to execute it, it actually starts the process, but stalls and says the msi is not valid. I tried to find another version of the msi, but so far no luck. I'm now trying to decode the Evernote.log file and see if I can find a clue.
  4. This is now day 5 and I have not received any communication from Evernote support. Each day I contact them via chat and am told that it is in the hands of a level 2 and that they will update the ticket. I will continue to do so, as there is no recourse. I have tried everything on the forum. Frankly I am amazed and discouraged. I love the product, and I have built my entire professional life around it, and I now cannot use it properly, and I am getting no support... not even a courtesy update.
  5. I am having the "PerUser install by another user: abort" issue -- with the recent version (5.1). I created a support ticket several days ago now and no word yet, and I am a business and premium user. I'd be totally dead in the water except for the web interface and my mobile apps - but I am a heavy user and those are not as useful as the native windows client because I do a lot of file related things. I have gone thru all the various forum entries and tried them all as best I could (revo, regedit, etc..) but I still get the error. Bellow is the EvernoteSetup.log entry. Has anyone else had the issue in the Evernote 5.x time frame and have a more recent fix. All I could find were in the 4.x issues.
