Re: ptcsetup.exe stopped working

Which version of Mathcad? Mathcad 15 or Prime 3?

Did you try to double click the *.msi file instead of starting setup.exe?

Re: ptcsetup.exe stopped working

Mathcad 15

Any success when using the msi installer as described here:http://communities.ptc.com/message/245072#245072 ?

Re: ptcsetup.exe stopped working

I tried install mathcad in that way. But after instalation when i try turn it on, shows information that Mathcad stopped working not ptcsetup.exe stopped working. I have tried run as administrator and run as for example Windows Xp.

Re: ptcsetup.exe stopped working

But i made a small next step because i have installed mathcad.

Thank you Werner Exinger

But if you can give me more tips please give me.

Re: ptcsetup.exe stopped working

So you have successfully installed MC15?

Where does the errormessage you get when you try to execute Mathcad.exe stems from? Mathcad or Windows? Can you possibly post a screenshot?

Do you have the necessary preliminaries installed - that is, are you running the correct mdac, .net and msxml versions?

This is my problem. I don't understand what is exactly mdac, net. What version msxml should i install?

Re: ptcsetup.exe stopped working

Mathcad 15 requires the following pre-installed components from Microsoft:

• Microsoft.NET Framework® 3.5 or later.

• MSXML 4.0 SP2 Parser and SDK (this exact version of MSXML is required).

• Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) 2.8 or later.

Re: ptcsetup.exe stopped working

I have installed MSDC 2.8 from this website http://www.microsoft.com/en-US/download/details.aspx?id=5793

. Net framework 4.5 and msxml 4.0 sp2 i have already installed on my computer.

But i have got the same problem, nothing has changed.

Any other idea? Pleas.
