Eviews9 Installation Error

Postby vitor » Tue Feb 16, 2016 4:56 pm

I recently purchased a EViews 9 Student Version for Windows. The woman who emailed my invoice and serial number to me included links to download a the installation .exe . However, running the downloaded file does nothing except open a window that says "error reading setup initialization file". Naturally this is not what I expected, nor what I wanted. How do I install it?

Installer link supplied to me: http://eviews.s3.amazonaws.com/EViews9SVInstaller.exe

I'm running windows 7 Home Basic. I've tried downloading multiple times, and restarting my computer. Neither worked.

Try pressing the right mouse button while over the exe file and selecting 'run as administrator'.

If that is not available or does not work, start Task manager and make sure you don't have any Installshield or EViews processes running.

Our EViews9SVInstaller.exe file is currently around 188MB. Makes sure your file is around that size.
