Issues installing MS Expression encoder ANYWHERE but locally

May 8, 2008 at 10:41 PM
I now have a VPS running server 2003 with all the nessecary .net framework components installed and all updates applied, but for some god aweful reason I am unable to install either version 1 or 2 of microsoft expression encoder on the server.

Would anyone be able to help? The Expression forums had this question posed, but it seems have worked to solutions through personal emails.

I have made a log of the install, but I cant tell what goes wrong.

With version 1, it gets to the end... licensing and starts to roll back the install. Version 2 doesnt even start, something about a mucked up icon resource... who knows. I dont want the new version anyway, I already purchased the first version for using with video.show!

Has anyone else been able to install expression in a virtualized environment? I have 1 gig of ram available and all the needed components.

thanks, im frustrated!

Have you been able to install on your server, what did you do about hte encoder path???

<appSettings>

    <add key="MediaEncoderPath" value ="C:\Program Files\Microsoft Expression\Encoder 1.0\"/>    (????????????????????)
   
</appSettings>

What would i set the MediaEncoderPath to when uploading the website?

thank you
