Vault Pro 2013 Client Deployment - Will not install

Has anybody seen where the Vault Pro 2013 Client Deployment will not install.  It starts, but just keeps saying setup initializing (over an 1 hour now).   I did not select the silent mode option when I created the deployment.  I can go to the same CAD workstation with the media and it installs fine.


Installation is occuring on a Win XP 64bit with service pack 2.


Just wondering if I will have to redo them (deployment 64B and 32B)?

Nevermind..  Discovered the problem...    The path name to the deployment exceeded 75 characters.  Once I changed the overall directory path the installation worked fine.


As a side note, our IT department had copied the deployment to a new server using the same share name on the new server.  However when I updated the deployment to remove the silent mode option, I was working on the original deployment and not the copied one.   Thus I was not able to see the message indicating I had exceeded the 75 characters.
