During the installation an error comes saying "file AL8883~2.CAB" cannot be found

There is a problem in the installation of version 2011.0.341 on Windows Vista machines.

Problem: during the installation an error comes saying "file AL8883~2.CAB" cannot be found. After, the installation stops.

Solution:

  • unzip the "Release_2011.0.341.zip" folder to the DISK1 folder
  • in this DISK1-folder, search manually for the file called "AL8883~11.CAB"
  • manually rename this file back to "AL8883~2.CAB"

This should do the trick.

This problem also does not appear when doing a custom installation and deselection the option "Allplan Support". Then the installation runs normally.
