The Windows environment variable PATH is too large or may contain invalid characters.


The solution is to temporarily reduce the environment variable path and only leave the MailEnable environment variable path. To do this follow the steps below:

  • Navigate within Windows Control Panel to: Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > System
  • Click on "Advanced system settings".
  • Next click on "Environment Variables..." button.
  • Within the "System Variables" list locate "Path" and double click to open.
  • Copy all the "Variable Value" field and paste into Windows Notepad (Save the file for backup).
  • Delete the "Variable Value" field and only leave the MailEnable paths. Default paths are: 32Bit OS (C:\Program Files\Mail Enable\BIN and C:\Program Files\Mail Enable\BIN64), 64Bit OS (C:\Program Files (x86)\Mail Enable\BIN and C:\Program Files (x86)\Mail Enable\BIN64).
  • Click OK and you should now be able to run the installer and perform the installation of MailEnable.
  • Once the installation has completed copy the "Variable value" path you copied to Notepad back to the "Variable Value" path within the Windows environment variable PATH.
