Would not install on XP x64 machine


Downloaded msi and tried installing but just getting error Could not open key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE32\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\Generators...\ObsPropGen...
I am running XP x64 so maybe that's the reason?

I would love to get that fixed in the installer. Do you have experience with the windows registry? Can you look up where your VisualStudio\10.0 node is? The Wow6432 node is a Windows 7\Server 2008 thing. I will do some research on Microsoft's site.

The ..\VisualStudio\10.0 node is where it says ie under HKEY_LM\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\ - it's just that none of the branches contain the ObsPropGen node. I did a search across the registry for ObsPropGen and noticed that this folder appears as a data value on a number of keys, all with Name DF2B70A714DAEC248A90FD771B7B5525. Let me know if you want me to check anything else. Cheers!

As a next step, could you send me the log for your install. I will send you a private message with my email so you don't have to post your log file on the discussion. To log the install use the following command.

msiexec /i "<path to msi here>\ObservablePropertyGeneratorsSetup.msi" /l*vx c:\ObsPropGen_install.log
