Problems with msi-component in windowsXP

Oct 24, 2011 at 11:01 AM

I can't figure out one problem with dotnetinstaller. I hope you could help me.  I added my msi-component with next cmdparameters:"/l*v #APPPATH\log_msi_inst.txt".

package: #CABPATH\mymsi.msi

embed file:  sourcefilepath = #APPPATH\mymsi.msi

                        targetfilepath = #CABPATH\mymsi.msi.

When I launch the bootstrapper on WinXP from different location, not inside #APPPATH, there is no information about is my product  already installed or not. And when I press "Install" button I see only help-page for msiexec. Windows Installer version is 4.5.6001.22299. Inside #APPPATH everything is working well.

But if i launch the bootstrapper on Win7 everything is ok, "Install" button runs my msi.

dotnetinstaller version is 1.10.1525.0. Thank you.

I would collect log files from both and compare?

Finally. There is no problem with OS. Just i can't launch an executable from Desktop.

Add /log /logfile install.log to the launch parameters and look at the error. I bet Desktop path has a space and you forgot to quote something.

Really, there is a space in the path. I'll look for uncorrect syntax.Thank you
