When attempting to install ERDAS Foundation 2013 an error is displayed which says “The installation of Intergraph Licensing appears to have failed. Do you want to continue the installation?
This installation error is caused by a failure in the installer related to an install path that exceeds 256 characters. In most cases the foundation-v13.0-win.zip has been extracted into a path that exceeds the 256 character limit when fully extracted. Because of this extended path, the ERDAS Foundation installer has trouble finding the Intergraph License tool installer and is unable to fully install.
Create a folder on the C: drive called “Foundation”.
Copy the foundation-v13.0-win.zip file to this location and extract all of the files.
