Correcting skipping extract files error during installation of Modernization Workbench Enterprise Edition for the Workgroup

Describes how to correct the error "Skipping Extract Files" received during installation of MW EE for the Workgroup (Oracle silent installation).

Problem:

Installation of MW EE for the Workgroup fails with the error “Skipping Extract Files <file name>" when the TEMP user environment variable contains special characters.

Resolution:

Change the value of the TEMP user environment variable temporarily so that it does not contain offending characters, then run the installation program again:
Note: Make a note of the current value so that you can restore it after completing installation of MW EE for the Workgroup.

  1. Choose Start > Settings > Control Panel > System > Advanced > Environment Variables.
  2. Select the TEMP user environment variable and click Edit. The Edit User Variable dialog opens.
  3. In the Variable value field, remove the offending characters from the variable value and click OK. Click OK to dismiss the Environment Variables window.
  4. Run the MW EE for the Workgroup installation program.
