  • G'day Gert,

    Some questions to help work out the root cause...

    Did you have a previous version installed? Did you fully uninstall it before installing 2021.3?

    I installed 2021.3 just last weekend on a couple of computers without incident (admittedly I wasn't using the "Std" Edition so it is not "proof").

    Cheers, Paul

  • I have uninstalled the previous version.

    Same error.

    I am installing the standard version in Delphi 11.

  • Right. This doesn't seem to be something other FastReport Users can help with. It looks to me like there is some issue with InstallAware on your system.

    Have you raised a Support Ticket?

    It might get you a faster result than the Forums...

    Cheers, Paul

  • Gert,

    I had a similar message yesterday installing the new version of Fastreports after my antivirus program (bitdefender) quarantined a plugin dll file installed by the Fastreports installer


    I simply restored it (hope I did the right thing) and all seems to be working Ok.



  • Hi,

    I have the same problem with same message.

    Uninstalled old version and executed the installer for 2021.3 but it stops after inserting the serial code and pressing Next.

    If I try to reinstall the old version I have the same problem. So now I'm unable to work.




  • Ok, if you have BitDefender, disable not only the antivirus but also add an exception for fastreport installer in the anti ramsonware... (resolved by FastReport support team)

    That makes sense, Sergio.

    We sometimes have problems with Norton Data Protector which throws a series of "threatening" Exceptions when installing FastCube / FastReport.

    We've taken to calling a "ten minute" moratorium on Data Protector to avoid such hassles.

    One of these days I will work out just what the root cause is...

    Cheers, Paul
