          Thank you for your post.


          Are you installing from a CD or from a download link?


          How much free space do you have on your hard drive?  If you have plenty of free space on your hard drive, then create a new user account, login to that user account, and try installing from there.  Does this work?


          Do you have access to another computer?  If so, try installing on that computer.  Does that work?  If not, then you may have a bad CD.


          Any additional information you can provide may be helpful in finding the cause(s).

              Have you tried running the installer program with administrative rights by right clicking and choosing run as administrator ?


              Basing off a google search, Error 1402 appears to relate to the registry, either something is blocking access to the registry or your privelages dont allow it.

                Hi SW,




                I am admin on my PC.I tryed the rightclick .. just getting the same error 


                Filemaker should regonice the message:


                UNKNOWN\.frm\FM70FMX}Shellnew error 1402 !!


                The FM10 adv runs on a other PC, which never saw Filemaker, without problem!!


                Since I cannot get to a developer direct from the Filemaker team

                I have to thinkitover to say goodby to FM.

                I have to use the PC with all the old programs.


                So thanks again and have a nice holiday season,

                  It definately seems to be a registry problem, does the error give you any more information such as


                  Could not open key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Filemaker... etc etc


                  If So, open registry editor by choosing Start > Run and typing regedit

                  Then locate the key it is talking about

                  Right click on the registry key and choose permissions

                  Make sure your user login has full access to that key by checking the appropriate boxes.

                    Thanks SW,


                    I searched the registry for entry etc. Filemaker,using Registry Workshop.


                    No traces are found.


                    I found unter HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.fmx\FM70FMX\ShellNew


                    Is this key wrong ??


                     regards Karlheinz

                      If you right click on  .fmx  then choose permissions, does your username in the list have a tick for Full Control

                      Same for FM70FMX and ShellNew


                      If not, try ticking it followed by installing FM10


                      Ive never experienced this problem, so its a shot in the dark.. but it sounds like this may be the cause.

                        Hi SW,


                        Registry problem solved !


                        I found out that the permissions for the following keys had no system and admit rights.

                        So I got we the program SUDOWN (linux sudo like for Windows) and changed the permissions for:


                        .mpr .upr .fmf .fmx .fth


                        And all at sudden, FM 10 Pro adv. was installed.


                        Thanks for the tip.


                        Now have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
