Didger 4 installation error: "Fatal Error. Installation ended prematurely because of an error"

If you receive the "Fatal Error. Installation ended prematurely because of an error" error message during installation of Didger 4 and cannot continue the install, the solution is to install Didger 4 in passive mode. 

To install Didger 4 in passive mode:

  1. Go to Start | Run. 
  2. From the "Run" or command line, type in the file path to either Setup.exe (if installing from a CD) or the Didger 4 EXE file (if installing from a download). 
  3. After the file path, type a space, a forward slash and the word “passive” (without quotes).   Example: d:\Setup.exe /passive or c:\temp\Didger40.exe /passive
  4. Click OK. 
  5. Walk through the installation windows. You will get to the window where it says Didger is being configured and a status bar will move across the screen. When that ends, the installation wizard disappears. At this point, Didger 4 should be installed. Check to be sure if Didger 4 is installed (either Start | All Programs | Golden Software Didger 4 or look in the Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs to see if it is installed).
