File not marked for installation



  • Trying to do an install of SideNotesIM on a machine but keep getting an error message during the install that says: File SideNotes.exe is not marked for installation.

    From what I have searched online, the error is not spefcifically a SideNotes error and its usually is caused by an old install that left either files or registry keys behind. CCCleaner was used to remove old registry entries and no other folder related to the app can be found.

    Tried contacting the manufacturer directly but they couldn't help. Have any of you experienced this type of error before?

    Is there anything from ProcessExplorer that shows what is trying to access? Or you can see if there is anything on the startup with AutoRUns and see if there is anything related to this application there.



  • Worth the try checking it @dbeato thanks, will try it once I can remote back into the machine today
