  • Question

  • when trying to install on win 7 I get installation failed. In the log, I see this:
    CustomAction InstallDirectX returned actual error code -9 (note this may not be 100% accurate if translation happened inside sandbox)
    MSI (s) (54:C0) [10:05:53:479]: Product: Microsoft Expression Blend 3 -- Error 1722. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor.  Action InstallDirectX, location: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Expression\Blend 3\DXSETUP.exe, command: /silent
