800xA ver 18.104.22.168 installation failed
Trying to install 800xA ver 22.214.171.124 on Windows Server 2016. All prerequisites have been done, users and user's groups created. Firewall is off.
After start Setup.exe from the media, it is copying the necessary files and then the following message appears:
'Loading system messages definition for System Installer.': exited with error code -1
Does anybody know what is the reason?
End of the log file is here:

It seems like ABB starts making tools which manipulates the system in an obscure way (obscure because not always visible and editable in plant explorer, also ref. another thread of mine which you replied to a few days ago regarding backup with limited retention time,
which, by the way, seems to remove the possibility of doing this kind of backup on more than one server.
This increases the dependencies to tools etc. in a trial to make it simpler, however, my experience from earlier versions has always been that auto-installation created a mess and i had to redo using manual methods (then I actually understood more or less what was going on), but now it looks like the configurator is forced to leave control to tools which make it harder to understand what is going on.
