Satellite A300D - upgrade Vista - "Setup.exe has stopped working".


I use Satellite A300D with Vista and I tried to upgrade to Windows 7 using Toshiba upgrader.

After the language selection and proceed to the other steps, it asks me to uninstall a bunch of programs. Some are uninstalled very well, but when it comes to four other programs he says "Setup.exe has stopped working" and it does not uninstall.

I tried to uninstall the manually, but I got the same message.

These programs are;
Setup driver Atheros
Toshiba hardware configuration
Toshiba supervisor password
Realtek High Definition Audio Driver

So I can't go ahead with the upgrade.

Anyone know what could be the problem?

Thanks in advance,

Pouvez - TR



Anyboday tried to run the upgrade as an administrator? Therefore, click on the setup.exe file on the upgrade disc and run it as an administrator.

Moreover I also upgraded from Vista to Windows 7, but in the manual supplied with the notebook, I founded the information, that it s to start the upgrade directly after a new installation of recovery.

If you did a recovery facility before the upgrade?

    I think that it is a simple case of corrupted registry entries and files that could belong to the TrueSuite Manager software.

    I agree with the previous user, and I recommend to reinstall this software again.
    You may need to clean the OS before installing the Truesuite again.
    In this case, I recommend the CCLenaer. It s a simple and free tool and can be downloaded on most Web sites.

    Google and you should find more information.

  • Error 'setup.exe has stopped working' when installing Quicken.

    Original title: setup.exe has stopped working

    I have read through the related forums and don't think I've seen a solid answer to this problem.  I'm trying to reinstall Quicken on my Dell Inspiron 530 Vista with service pack 2.  (Long and ugly tells how he got deleted at first - thank you, Intuit).

    When I try to install Quicken, I get the above error message.  I tried the clean boot solution; I tried to enter the installation and execution of the exe directly from there; I tried to do a right click to open/run as administrator... etc.

    I have NOT run or other third-party software to solve this problem - I'm very comfortable with another piece of software download and throw into the equation.  What is a corrupted registry and I have TO run third to fix?  Is it a bug of Vista - is there a fix of bug for her?

    I really don't like that to 'guilty' at this point, I just want to repair and recover my electronic payments!  Help, please!

    Hey, Keenon,.

    Please, remove all existing components of Quicken from the computer and do a fresh install.

    Step 1: use QcleanUI uninstall Quicken

    Follow the instructions in the article below for more information on how to use this tool.

  • get the message "setup.exe has stopped working" when trying to install labview 2011 or 2012 on a windows machine 7

    When you try to install labview 2011 or 2012 on a windows machine 7, I get a message "setup.exe has stopped working". I tried to run setup.exe as an administrator with the same results. I have Microsoft .NET Framework installed on the affected machine 4.5.1. Could be the cause of this problem? Or does anyone know the root cause of this error?

    Hi - are you getting it at the beginning of installation, during or after 100% progression ended?

    Is it fair to LabVIEW you install, or is it drivers too, in this case, what was the last big package that has been installed at the time?

    This can be caused by the NVIDIA chipset driver:

  • Setup.exe has stopped working

    Hello, I am trying to install a driver for a "Turtle beach II Micro" usb sound card. Whenever I try to open the .exe file, I get the following:
    Setup.exe has stopped working

    A problem caused the blocking of the program works correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

    On the computer Dell, right click on the file setup.exe to the Turtle Beach Micro II and select 'run as administrator '.
