I literally have the same problem as this person:
Same error message and everything. I clear out my config_global.php so that I can just have a fresh install on my dev computer. But invision is assuming a default username of blank according to the error message. I am thinking this is a bug but I am unsure. There may be a workaround which is to copy over my database on my live site, but it would be a pain for me to do so. It's much cleaner and easier to do a fresh install for testing purposes.
Ok just figured it out this morning (last night was difficult because there were all kinds of problems with my WAMP setup as it was 2 years old!). PHP had to be upgraded in order to get my 4.x test install working properly, but I was not noticing that each time I went to click "INSTALL", it was giving me localhost//admin/install with 2 double slashes. But that is what was giving me the headache, and I am sure this person's issue that I linked to had the same problem as me. Removing the double slash was the quick and easy fix.
