  • Problem
  • Updated 4 years ago
We're having trouble installing the 2015 upgrade.  We're running Windows 2012 server.
We get no specific error messages just installation interrupted.  We've tried uninstalling, we've tried the printer spooler scenario as per the knowledge base and are now stumped.
We're wasting time and money here any suggestions?

Hi Terri,

Welcome to Reckon Community!

With regards to your query, as a start, please try the following article for Installation Interrupted

Moreover, check if there is a remnant that was installed on the list of Programs and to be removed if any.

Should issue persist, assuming that the RAB 2015 was downloaded and extracted to a TEMP folder, try running the SETUP.EXE in Compatibility Mode for Server 2008 R1. Else, redo the extraction to a new local directory.

Hope it helps!

Kind Regards,

Hi Terri

I have had this problem with 3 different clients and also on my main computer. What I found that fixed this problem is what Jamaiel mentions in his first paragraph. Go to the "Installation interrupted" article (Knowledge Base ID # 5107) and try Workaround #3 'Stop the Print Spooler'. Worked every time for me.
