Issue:
The StruxureWare Data Center Expert 7.2.2 client installation may fail on Windows 8.x when it is installed in a non-default directory with a long install path.

Product Line:
StruxureWare Data Center Expert

Environment:
Microsoft Windows 8.x
StruxureWare Data Center Expert 7.2.2 client

Cause:
Choosing a long install path causes the DCE 7.2.2 client install to fail on Windows 8.x. Additionally, choosing the Abort option to stop the installation leaves files behind in the install directory.

Resolution:
It is recommended Windows 8.x users choose the default installation path, or a non-default directory with a short path.
Users who experience this issue must manually remove the installation files in the long path name directory.
