Catz 5 Help.

Post by shadowynights on Fri 09 Jun 2017, 10:29

Hello, I hope I am posting in the correct place as I am very new to this place.

My problem with Catz 5 is that whenever I try to start the setup.exe, it gives me an error that says:

The InstallShield Engine (iKernel.exe) could not be installed. The filename, directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect. 

I don't know what to do, I read the installation guide and it's got nothing to do with this. Please help!

Thank you and I hope you could reply fast!

1) Try deleting the files in the "Temp" directory, or 2) deleting the "Engine" folder (C:\Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield\Engine)

Hope this helps! Let me know if you're still struggling x

I tried deleting the files in my Temp folder, that didn't work; it gave me the same error. However, when I tried doing the second method, I had no Engines folder, so I deleted the whole InstallShield one. It didn't work. I'm sorry if I sound idiotic or anything, I just have no basic knowledge of computers, thanks for the help though! Will deleting any of those temp files affect my computer in anyway?

I'm so sorry to hear that! The last thing I would try is to

 1) open the following folder:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield\Engine\6\Intel 32

2) delete the folder that contains the IKernel.exe file 

3) install and run the InstallShield installer





If this doesn't work then it's most likely an issue with the download/torrent and not your PC  I is confused (and deleting the Temp folder won't harm your PC  Smile)

Hello and welcome,

Have you tried installing the G4TW "Dogz 5" first, before installing Catz?
