Kiwi Syslog Web Access will not install if non-default website root is specified during install, ERROR 2869

Overview

When installing Kiwi Syslog Web Access, if you install Web Access to the default (C:) drive, but specify a different drive location for the website root (ie. D: drive), you receive the following error:

 

At the “Configuring ASP.Net…” step of the Web Access installation process:

 

"The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package.  This may indicate a problem with this package.  The error code is 2869."

Cause

The Kiwi Syslog Web Access installer cannot configure the Temporary ASP.Net files location, if a non-default website root is specified.

Applies to
