Installation and Uninstallation Issue

Recommended Posts

When I installed Novabench, the installation did not complete nicely. Received the following error message:

Warning 1909. Could not create Shortcut Novabench.lnk. Verify that the destination folder exists and that you can access it.

The same error message occurs during repair.

Uninstalling using the novabench.msi or from Program and Features shows the following message and rollsback the uninstallation:

Error getting file security: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\ GetLastError:5


This is frustrating and I've not found any solution to this. So anyway to clear this issue is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for letting me know, I haven't heard of this before.

Is this a standard user account, or are you running this PC under a group policy (e.g. at work)? Have you seen any other installers unable to create a start menu icon?

I'm using it at home with an Admin account. 

Anyway after 2 days of researching, I managed to remove it buy removing read-only settings on the Start Menu folder (inside programdata) while the software was uninstalling simultaneously.

Wont try reinstalling it in case the solution doesn't work anymore.
