Error while running v1.3.4 windows-installer.exe

Hello,

I am new to ODK.

I want to install the ODK Aggregate on the Google App Engine.

I have downloaded the ODK Aggregate v1.3.4 windows-installer.exe . I go to the downloads folder and run this file and while it is installing I get an error -

Error Creating C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\ODK Aggregate

Would you know what the issue would be and how can I fix it.

I am using Windows 7 machine.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Ramesh

The directory path you selected for the location of ODK Aggregate is not
appropriate.

You should place the ODK Aggregate directory in your Documents folder, or
somewhere else outside of the C:\Program Files\ , C:\ProgramData\ , or
C:\Windows directories. Those directories have special access restrictions
because placing data or files within them can compromise the security of
your system. In this case, one of those safeguards is preventing you from
creating the directory under C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start
Menu\Programs\

hi there..I also got the same error with ramesh..in some pc it worked, but
in some would not.. I have this NEW laptop with a windows installed, and I
got that error, I wonder why it happened..Is there a solution or kind of
troubleshooting aside from installing it in other computer?

Thanks a lot for such a prompt response Mitch.

I have tired the following 3 folders and am still getting the error. I am not sure what I am doing wrong as this is the first time I am trying to install the ODK Aggregate.

C:\Users\Ramesh\Documents
C:\Users\Ramesh\Desktop
C:\Users\Ramesh\Desktop\Test
C:\Users\Ramesh\

Thanks a lot for your help.

I don't have a fix for this. You can try:

(1) Log into an account that contains no accent marks or non-Latin
characters in the username and that does not use a remote (network) profile.
(2) Be sure no other Java versions are installed, and install Java 7.
(3) Download the ODK Aggregate installer, but do not run it from within the
browser. Instead, navigate to it from your file browser (the browser should
save it in the Downloads directory).
(4) Create a directory under the User's Documents (or My Documents)
directory for use by the installer.

Not having seen someone encountering this problem and not having access to
a computer that can replicate this issue, I have been unable to determine
exactly what is causing the issue.

Do you have any antivirus software running? You might need to first copy
the installer to a directory other than your Downloads directory, then
double-click it, and proceed from there.

i.e., the antivirus software might be preventing applications located in
the Downloads directory from accessing other parts of your disk drive.

If copying the installer to a different directory fixes the issue, please
let me know what antivirus software you have.

Did you download and install Java 6 or 7 on your system?
http://java.com/en/download/index.jsp

(Java 6 or 7 are required. See the instructions here:
http://opendatakit.org/use/aggregate/ )

You cannot use the built-in java app on Windows -- it is very old and very
out-of-date.

Ah, the mysteries of the Windows ecosystem.

I'm glad you've gotten it working.

Note that the installer only generates the ODK Aggregate directory -- it
doesn't make any configuration changes to your PC. So if you need that
directory on the problematic PC, you can always copy it over from the PC on
which the installer works. Of course, if the installer is failing, there is
a higher likelihood that the Google AppEngine upload script or a Tomcat
installation will also have quirky failures.

Did you download and install Java 6 or 7 on your system?
http://java.com/en/download/index.jsp

(Java 6 or 7 are required. See the instructions here:

You cannot use the built-in java app on Windows -- it is very old and
very out-of-date.

You should place the ODK Aggregate directory in your Documents

C:\ProgramData\ , or C:\Windows directories. Those directories have special

compromise the security of your system. In this case, one of those

Thanks Mitch, Yes we will be using the installer on this machines where we
do not get any error.

Also, the Aggregate installed successfully on the Google Engine.

When we go to the app engine page (ex myname.appspot.com), it directly
takes me to the Aggregate and displays the data. I know there is a way
whereby it only allows users with user name and password to get access the
Aggregate. Is there a documentation on how do I set it up so that only
users with valid user name and password can access the data.

Thanks
Ramesh

I'm glad you've gotten it working.

Note that the installer only generates the ODK Aggregate directory -- it
doesn't make any configuration changes to your PC. So if you need that
directory on the problematic PC, you can always copy it over from the PC on
which the installer works. Of course, if the installer is failing, there is
a higher likelihood that the Google AppEngine upload script or a Tomcat
installation will also have quirky failures.

Click the 'Log in' link on the top right corner of the ODK Aggregate
screen, and choose the 'Sign in with Google' and enter the email account
that you specified when running the installer.

You will then see the 'Site Admin' tab. Click that, and the 'Permissions'
sub-tab.

You can configure access to the server on this sub-tab.

Hopefully it is self-explanatory.

You are prevented from creating a configuration that would prevent this
e-mail account from accessing the server, so you can try different
configurations without worrying about making the server inaccessible.

If you eliminate all accesses for the anonymousUser, you must create an
ODK Aggregate username, grant it Data Collector privileges, set a password
for it, then specify that username and password in ODK Collect on its
General Settings menu. This will allow ODK Collect to send finalized forms
to your server.
