Unable to complete Hog 3 PC Install on laptop?

BeammerBeammer Registered User
This is a strange one. In the pass I've been able to install other versions of Hog 3 PC on my Dell Laptop XPS M170 with MS Windows XP Professional (SP3) without any issues.
But I've recently encountered a problem with the new release of Hog 3 PC 3.1.6.2773.
I select to run the install from the Highend site as I've done many times in the pass. Everythings seems to be going right until the install wizard get to the Status: Installing New Service.
Then I get is prompt: Service "FPS NTP Service (hogntpd) could not be installed. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to install system services.
I select to retry and th same prompt appears. I slelect to cancel and the wizard rolls back the install.
I've recently agreed to allow Microsoft to verify my copy of Windows XP Professional.is authenic. Could this be an issue with loading your software?
Have you heard of anyone else having these issues after excepting the terms of MS authenic agreement?

Please advise,
Best Regards,

    i actually ran into the very same problem just this week, and no, it has nothing to do with Windows Genuine Advantage activation or validation.

    rather, the FPS NTP Service was "re-named" between 3.1.1.2679 and 3.1.2.2697, and the 3.1.2+ installers don't handle that aspect of the upgrade.


    here are two commands, to be run from a command prompt:
    sc stop fpsntp & sc delete fpsntp
    sc stop hogntpd & sc delete hogntpd
    

    which one you need to use depends on your history of installing, uninstalling, upgrading, etc.

    run the first command and then try installing again; if that continues to fail, try the second.
