HPC Pack 2012 MSMPI R2 fails to install with error code 2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows 10 Home

    Attempted to install most recent version of HPC Pack 2012 MSMPI R2 after uninstalling previous version. Install fails with error code 2 (similar to other forum users). Checked registry for taited key as per forum recommendation but did not find the key sited.

    Any help would be most appreciated.

  • Hi,

    Can you try installing MS-MPI while Process Monitor is running, and send us the logs?

    You can install Process Monitor at https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/processmonitor.aspx. When you start it, and filter the capture to "Process Name is MsMPiSetup.exe", it will log when the setup is trying to access a file/reg which cannot be found, and we can figure out what the issue is.

  • I too have the error code 2 when I try to reinstall MS-MPI version 7.  I tried to reinstall it because mpiexec seemed to be hanging - it was running OK until very recently.  I made a log and it would be attached but I can't see how to attach it.
