windows 8 (Archived) Installation problems(error 2755)

Recommended Posts

I tried to install the the latest version of Evernote on my LenovoG400s laptop with Windows 8-64 bit but failed to do so.I tried with the older versions but the outcomes are the same.Each time there would be a window popping out saying  "The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing the package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2755." and another one saying ".\Bootstrapper.cpp:896) 0x643:Fatal error during installation."There was a preinstalled Evernote Touch on the Windows 8 Start Menu but i don't think it is the cause of the error 2755 as my setup text document does mention "Did not detect any installed versions of Evernote 3.5 or 4."I haven't installed or uninstalled any version of Evernote on the desktop before so i guess the solutions for the error 2732 won't work here.

Below is the setup text document:

Is there anything i can do to fix this problem?Is it the problem with the Windows Installer or something else?

This installation problem has been solved thanks to the team of Evernote Support.

It was due to the incomplete uninstallation of Evernote Touch by only clicking the "uninstall" button on Windows 8 start menu.

The solution:

1)Download and install the trial version of Revo Uninstaller Pro.

2)Use the '"forced uninstall" feature and enter the folder path of Evernote Touch.

3)Run it under advanced mode and delete all items.

4)Run the installer of the desktop version of Evernote.

UPDATE:

 

After attempting 17 different "fixes" to no avail, I finally resolved the issue by doing the following for a second time:

 

(If not already set, set folders to allow viewing Hidden items)

 

  1. Windows Key + R, then type %Temp% and hit Enter
  2. Go back one level and right-click on the Temp folder
  3. Choose Properties>Security
  4. Then click on your login and/or Admin name and select Edit
  5. Check 'Full Control' and then Apply (if you are unable to apply, you'll need to go through a deeper process of obtaining full control, unfortunately I don't remember off the top of my head, so you'll have to Google it. I'll update this if I remember the steps I took to elevate my level of control.)
  6. That should be it. Go back to the Evernote installer and install. (You may get some errors such as not having access to the destination folder. Don't hit anything, just navigate to that folder, right click and take ownership then Retry. I also had an issue with creating the link, but just clicked through that and opened the Evernote app directly from C:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote.)
  7. That was it. Up and running now. 

99.9% certain that this was caused by trying out some alternative "cleaners" this past week. Now I know, stick with Ccleaner! It is the only one I have used with no ill effect.

 

 

ORIGINAL:

Strange, that solution is not an option for me. There is no Evernote installation on my machine (also Windows 8 Pro x64.)

 

I receive the following errors in order:

 

"The system cannot open the device or file specified."
"The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing the package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2755."
"Installation failed: (.\Bootstrapper.cpp:905) 0x643:Fatal error during installation."
 
I wonder if there is another solution. For some reason I received this response from support rather than the assistance you received.
 
Thanks for reaching out to Evernote support. I apologize for any inconvenience.

Because Evernote 5 for Windows is still in Beta, we have no official support for it just yet. Here is a link for the Beta. I hope this one works better for you.

Again, this is the Beta and there will not be support until the full version is available.

 
How were you able to come by assistance if I may ask?
