// Prompts //

  • The installation process of InstallAware X9 writes disk heavily, so that your system will get stuck obviously.
  • Even if you install it to D volume, InstallAware sill requires you have at least 20 GB of free disk space for C volume (otherwise you will get the following error halfway)
    • Unable to copy installation data to local folders
  • The installation process of InstallAware X9 is really time-consuming.
  • The software developers are so stupid as to extract all the program files into “C:\ProgramData\”, and then copy them to the installation path.
  • Based on several points above, AppNee is sure that InstallAware will not have a bright future, and will be abandoned by all users eventually.
