Setup is initializing displayed for ever with Showcase from deployment share

I have created a 32-bit deployment of Showcase 2013. Whenever I try to install from the deployment share I get a window reading Setup is initializing.... The green progress bar moves to about 85% then drops back to about 50% before repeating the process.


This continues for ever (well, I've never allowed it more than three days...).


I've tried recreating the deployment image but to no avail.


Any ideas?

Hello. First, I would see if you are able to install without using the deployment. Can you install directly? Can you install on another computer with no error? If you are only needing to install on a handful of machines, non-deployment is a better option. If you wanted to troubleshoot the deployment more, I would first delete the deployment and create a new one.

Then I would go to the target machine and make sure of the following:

-You are logged in as an admin

-UAC is turned off

-Antivirus is off
