When you install Microsoft Cluster Server, you may observe the following error:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Runtime Error!
Program E:\MSCS\cluster\setup.exe
Abnormal program termination

NOTE: The drive and the folder listed here may be different on your system.


The account used when you install Microsoft Cluster Server must have administrative rights on the computer on which you are running setup.


To correct this problem, close all programs and log on using an account with administrative rights. You may either grant administrative rights to the account you were using or use a different account to install Microsoft Cluster Server.

After making any necessary changes, close all programs and log on using the proper account with administrative rights and run Microsoft Cluster Server setup again.
