Title: Windows installation fails immediately after specifying locations and password
Date: Feb 08
Product & Version: All
OS Version: Windows
Module & Version: N/A
Application version: N/A
Symptoms: The Windows installation fails immediately after the install locations and the server password have been specified and submitted. An error code is reported suggestion to check the installation logs and it aborts.
The checkinstall.sh.log file from the Windows temporary directory will report the following error:
Insert file not supported ('. "$PARAMETER_FILE"')
Failed to substitute execution strings
Substitution failed for commands line
This is the result of specifying a password that contains the " (double quote) character, or other special characters. Attempt the installation again, but this time use a password that only contains letters and numbers.
The script passes on the password as a parameter internally. Using the double quote character terminates the string and causes a problem with the script execution.
