MSI Issues

Recommended Posts

Guest SLeffing

First, I've been using DAF for awhile. And it works great! Thanks.

I think I can confirm that version 0.60.0.24 has an issue

unregistering/reregistering windows installer 2.0 on win 98SE.

Version 0.57.7.0 did not seem to have a problem.

Or maybe that version just (re)registered msiexec without unregistering first.

I guess the default location (on win 9x) for msiexec.exe is the system directory

and DAF is expecting it to be the windows directory. ?

Here's a full log.

Just skip down to the "--- MSI ---" section.

Notes about this log:
1) "->" denotes an external command being executed, and "-> (number)" indicates
the return code from the previous command
2) Not all external command return codes are accurate, or useful
3) Sometimes commands return 0 (no error) even when they fail or crash
4) If an error occurs while registering an object, please send an email to:
dial-a-fix@DjLizard.net and include a copy of this log

I could have downloaded windows installer again. (And installed it.)

This is the link for windows 98/98se/ME:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en

direct download:

http://download.microsoft.com/download/Win...US/InstMsiA.exe

(Easy AND safe!)

I chose to reregister the existing files msiexec.exe and msi.dll.

They are both in my c:\windows\system directory.
