I was getting this problem a lot recently trying to install Condor as the
supplied MSI, through Active Directory. It kept coming up with this same
error. I thought that there was a problem with the downloaded MSI file that
I had obtained. I uninstalled condor through the usual "Add/Remove
programs", then rebooted the machines, manually removed the c:\condor
directory and then used RegEdit to remove the HKLM/software/condor (or
whatever it's path was) from the registry. I downloaded a fresh version of
the MSI, and reapplied the new MSI to the machines through AD. It's worked
without a problem on the PCs since. I know that it might be a silly
question, but have you checked the Event Viewer log to see if there were
any other errors on the PCs before the Condor install - just in case it got
caught up with something before hand? I've had the Windows Installer mess
up before, which has caused all sorts of issues in other software installs
at a later point?
If you do find out the cause for the problem, can you let the mailing list
know, as it sounds like a bit of a bugbear!?

I have asked this question before but still I can get a correct solution.
I am trying to install Condor 6.8.4 on an XP machine using the MSI and
towards the end I get the following error:
CUSTOM ACTION "ExeCaKeyF04" FAILED (unexpected return code). LOCATION:
C:\Condor\, COMMAND: "cmd.exe" /c condor_set_acls.exe ?C:\Condor?
I thought it was a bug in 6.8.4 and so yesterday I tried 6.8.5 and I'm
still getting the error. I'm now going to try an earlier version, since
according to earlier posts they don't exhibit the same phenomenon. But I
think the Condor developers might want to look into this. It has
happened to other people before.
If you have a solution, please share.
