I have TC7 that I've been using for years and wanted to re-install but now get the dreaded Error 1334 message. Turbocad doesn't seem to be able to help with this as I have had 3 direct assistance contacts with them. Looks like I'll have to buy a new program. So much for product support. Could not find any info in "previous products" to help. Anyone else had the dreaded 1334 message? and did you fix it?

From reading your previous post about "deleting and substituting" some of the files, I think you've botched up TurboCAD pretty good. You need to restore your computer back before you started juggling the V7 install files and uninstall V7.

I didn't have any problems installing V7.0, but the "Update" to V7.1 is not a patch; it's a complete program install (at least the Update I have). You should place those files in a unique folder when the "TurboCADProfessional7.1Udate.exe" attempts to extract them. You need to remove Version 7 (use Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel) first, then you can use the files created by the "Update" to install (reinstall?) V7.1. 

I read somewhere that IMSI/Design only supports X-amount previous versions (3-4?), beyond that, good luck! Being that V7 is 10 years old, I think you're lucky that they were willing to help.

Well no I haven't "botched" at all cos I didn't have TC7 even loaded. I am about re-installing after a year or so and am using my original TC7 CD. I am trying to do this as Turbocad instructs by substituting TC7 with TC7.1 but getting ERROR 1334. I have told the TC help but they are ignoring any reference to ERROR 1334. Your comments where cynical and not helpful either

try using Windows Installer Cleanup Utility once you install your software and get the error.  It will allow you to do a cleanup on that version.   What OS are you using?  If Vista, are you in administrator mode with UAC disabled.

Sorry can't do that cos what I am trying to do is just install the b....y program after not having it on the computer for about 6 months die to a hard drive crash. My system is XP HOME. Thanks for your advise but still in the sh.....t

You are trying to load TC7.1.  Are you installing from the administrator account or a user account?   Are you using the TurboCAD disk to install or a file?   What error is in the event viewer?   It could be a dll problem with XP Home.   I would consider upgrading to the newer version.

Does anyone have the msi file for v7.0 to run on XP?
