A New Day!

Let’s start the day off with a PayPal donation link:

This Morning

Once again I am faced with the infamous “String DLGASKDESTTS_MSG1 was not found in string table.” while trying to install Macromedia’s ColdFusion Studio 5. I’ll repost from November 13

“String DLGASKDESTTS_MSG1 was not found in the string table.”

The solution is provide in a comment on by Gianluca Neri of

Here’s what I’ve just found using Google Groups (God Bless Google):


The “String DLGASKDESTTS_MSG1…” error message that you received may have been caused by other running applications when you launched the Install Wizard. I suggest that when you install,

close all other applications including any applications that are running in the background. If you have an anti-virus installed in your system, temporarily disable this while doing the installation.

As an additional safeguard that will minimize the chance of having those error messages again, I also suggest you follow these instructions:

1. Please delete the Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield\Engine


2. Clear out the Temp folder

3. Delete the following folders (IF they exist):

\Program Files\InstallShield Installation


\Program Files\InstallShield Installation


\Program Files\InstallShield Installation


\Program Files\InstallShield Installation


Note: Please make sure you can view hidden files and folders before

trying those steps has this to say about his stats and this error.

Time to install some software.
