Error 1001 in Windows: Exception occurred while initializing the installation.
During installation of the native install on a Windows platform the error is thrown when the install is at the "removing backup files" point.
Error 1001: Exception occurred while initializing the installation.
System.Argument Exception: String cannot have a zero length..
Acknowledging the error then removes the application.
The error is caused by files left over from a previous, other client installation. These files are located in
C:\Users\<THEUSER>\AppData\Local\Temp\ NOTE: AppData is a hidden folder
Three files can be present. RWSCleanup.dll, RWSCleanup.InstallState and RWSCleanup.txt.
Delete all three and then run the install again.
Deleting the files will not impact existing installations.
