.zip error



Problems with Vectorworks 12.5.0 install on Windows XP. disk #1. error I get is

Cannot open zips to extract files.

Exception Type: exceptions.UnboundLocalError

Exception Value: local variable 'zipObj' referenced before assignment

Exception Stack:

File "InstallerScript.pyc", line 1713, in ?

File "InstallerScript.pyc", line 826, in OpenZipFile

I have tried loading from DVD and copied files on my desktop. I have tried loading on another computer both are running Windows XP and both give me the same message. I have even gone so far as to load every .zip file on the DVD separately the problem file seems to be "Common5.zip" as all the others work.

Do you have any limited permissions with the account you are using?

Have you tried using the Admin account to install (if not currently using that account)

I suggest contacting your local distributor for resolution. They may have an alternative installation method for you.

Thanks. I have already been in discussion with them they were totally clueless as to what was going on as well. I thought that a wider base of knowledge may prove helpful hence the post. My local distributer have just recieved the 2.5.1 pack and are sending me that. So hopefully the saga will end there. Keep your ears out and if you have any other thoughts they would be appreciated. Thanks for your help.
