The following appears when installing the application:

installDriver Module

InstallDriver Module has stopped working

A problem caused the program to stop working

correctly. Please close the program

-> Close the program

Why and How to avoid it?


 In this case it was directly related to a security software from Microsoft called EMET that was preventing the install shield (C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\InstallShield\Driver\8\Intel 32\IDriver.exe) from executing properly and completing the Bentley AutoPIPE V8i Test SELECT series 5 Acceptance Test Set install.


Add it to the list of application exceptions, and turn off DEP, so the installation would continue.
