When trying to install ATGv10.2 on Windows 8 (64 bit) you may come across this error :
===Installer UI Mode Error=== Installer User Interface Mode Not Supported The installer cannot run in this UI mode. To specify the interface mode, use the-i command-line option followed by the UI mode identifier. The valid UI modes identifiers are GUI, Console, and silent.
Let me first tell you how to get around this issue :
Select the Installer EXE -> ATG10.2_394REL.exe -> Right Click -> Properties Menu -> Troubleshoot Compatibility
After a few seconds/minutes you should be able to see a dialog similar to :
"Settings applied to ATG1O.2_394REL Windows compatibility mode: Windows XP (Service Pack 3)"
The Windows XP SP3 compatibility mode seems to do the trick ! …
Click “Next” and ATGv10.2 should start with the installer which will guide you with the rest of the installation..
Now for the comparisons of the Installers :
The installer for ATGv10.2 seems to ship with a new version of InstallAnywhere which is a Java-based software tool for creating installers or software packages, for multiple platforms .
The ATGV9.x, ATGv10 ,ATGv10.1.2 installers all seem to work on Windows8 without running on WinXP SP3
compatibility mode except for the exception of ATGv10.2 ..
