Finishing the installation

Updated: August 22, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003 R2

If the Active Directory Application Mode Setup Wizard completes successfully, the Completing the Active Directory Application Mode Setup Wizard page displays the message "You have successfully completed the ADAM Setup Wizard." If the Active Directory Application Mode Setup Wizard does not complete successfully, an error message appears.

Errors can occur either during the setup process or during directory service initialization.

To finish the installation

  • Review the message that appears. Based on the contents of message, do one of the following:

    • If "You have successfully completed the ADAM Setup Wizard" appears, click Finish.

    • If an error message appears, make a note of the error, click Finish, and then review the Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM) event messages in Event Viewer.

Notes

  • If an error occurs in the Active Directory Application Mode Setup Wizard before the Completing the Active Directory Application Mode Setup Wizard page, first review the error message that describes the cause of the problem. Then, click Start, click Run, and type either of the following:

    %windir%\Debug\adamsetup.log

    %windir%\Debug\adamuninstall.log

    These files contain information that can help you troubleshoot the cause of the ADAM setup failure.

  • For both installs and uninstalls, ADAM uses a registry key to return error codes and messages back to the caller (for example, an .msi package). ADAM Setup creates this registry key and associated values only if errors or warnings occur. This registry key is HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ADAM_Installer_Results, and it includes the possible values in the following table.

    ADAMInstallErrorCode

    The numeric error code that caused the installer to fail
