    I've finished the installation process and rebooted but the control panel doesn't start.
    The event viewer shows the following error:
    "The following information is part of the event: The Apache service named, , reported the following error:
    >>>, (20024)The given path misformatted or contained invalid characters: Invalid config file path C:\\Program Files\\SWsoft\\Plesk\\admin\\conf\\\\httpd.conf, , , , , ."

    It is Plesk 7.5.3 with Windows Server 2003 web edition + SP1. Any ideas?

    Mkae sure that httpd.con file has permissions for psaadm user for reading.

    It would be netter to set them on conf directory at all and iherite to child objects.

    Fixed!

    I believe there's a bug in the installer... The control panel was not properly registered as a service.
    I had to re-register Apache2 as a service with the command "apache -k uninstall" and then "apache -k install".

    Most likely that there were a problems with access permissions onto root drives (C:\, D:\). There should be set the following permisions:

    Users - R,W,X, read permissions to this folder , subfolders and files.

    Everyone - R,X to This folder only

    It all are applied to C:\, D:\...

    I saw such problem before.

    I removed "everyone" and "users" from the root drives as it is not safe the keep them there... It's weird that the installation requires this. Next time I'll remove them after the installation.

    Thank you OlegB for the information :)

    Shazan, it's not recommended because many other problems may occur during further Plesk activity.
