I never set errror codes on my exceptions. We've upgraded to errrror codes.

OK, then, just how would one install IE8 *without* having IE8 available?
See, it's all in how you interpret the error. It could be that the installer's own cab turned out to be empty.

The Saleforce error is actually very impressive. No overflow on the minutes calculation and down to the seconds. Remember, if you're going to screw up, do it to the max.

It was the name of the docking station, not what device was plugged into it. No Fail.

Actually, considering it's running at a rate of zero records per hour, that's really quite a fast completion time.

Thats just an estimate. It could be processing less records than that per hour.

Yeah, I hate it when a company forces a model to prominently display her ##IDS_BOOBS## just to manipulate us into buying their ##IDS_PRODUCTNAME##

Those who were paying attention a few years ago will recall that MSIE is indistinguishable from Windows and the two cannot be separated, not even by court order. It isn't technically possible. Therefore, since MSIE only runs on Windows, of course you must have IE in order to install IE.

Presumably this logic extends to versions as well. Windows 8 + MSIE 8 required for MSIE 8.

Your logic is cyclical and redundant. +2.

TRWTF is that the docking station needs a name. Is it so you can tell which of the many docking stations you are currently docked at is the one with the device in use?

The fact that the person who did something stupid was not the first person suspected does not make the action any less stupid.

But in spite of comming earlier as you move west, noon always arrives at 12:00 in the local time zone

In defense of Vodafone, InstallShield is one giant turd on a turtle crafted of turds on the back of an elephant made of a turd.

Unfortunately it is better than the tooling from Microsoft for building Windows Installers. That is alot like programming for Windows 3.1. "Here's some piss poor documentation of the APIs, and some build tools that have cryptic command line switches. It's a C API, so clearly you are smart enough to figure it out on your own."

Wow! Finally a determinate result for infinity = 152,722,867,280,912:55 minutes.

Now we know that:

1 / 0 = 152,722,867,280,912:55
2 / 0 = 152,722,867,280,912:55

1 / 0 = 2 / 0

Multiply both sides by 0 / 0

Title of the message box sounds like a request. "Install internet explorer 8". The body of the message sound like a longer version (explanation) of the title.
The only thing that is wrong here, is that the submitter thought that this is an ie8's installer, while it probably was ie9, ie10, some upgrade to ie8, or whatever application that requires ie8.
Of course this is just a theory, as judging from the screenshot itself one can not tell what installer it was.
