Well, here is a nice tip for the crowd – webMethods Enterprise Adapters v4.1.1 cannot be installed on NT if the command-line command is over a certain number of characters. This is the Error Type 3.
So, when installing the Enteprise v.4.1.1 standard adapters for Enterprise Server, if you get the Error Type 3 dialog box, here is what to do:
Get the directory name with the install file in it down to as few characters as possible. For example, the default file name is “411ga_ent-adapter-dom.zip”. This file extracts by default to the folder “411ga_ent-adapter-dom”. Change the folder name to “a”.
Move the folder to your root directory. The path to the executable should now be “C:\a\setup.exe”.
Run the executable. You will not get the Error Type 3 dialog box.
I will detail some other steps to take when upgrading to Enterprise Server 5.0 in a future post.
