How does HomeSite work? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does HomeSite have be set to an URL address? I set it to a UNC path and the installer complains that it can't find my files to download, even though they are sitting right there in the UNC path.

    The install log says

    Downloading files to "C:\DOCUME~1\jc\LOCALS~1\Temp\VSD5CF.tmp\"
    
    (5/14/2009 4:00:05 PM) Downloading 'QETools\qesetup.exe' from '\\aa-uss-1\QETools' to 'C:\DOCUME~1\jc\LOCALS~1\Temp\VSD5CF.tmp\'
    
    Download completed at 5/14/2009 4:00:05 PM
    
    Downloading failed with HRESULT=-2146697195

    With this PackageFile specification:
    <PackageFiles>
    
    <PackageFile Name="qesetup.exe" HomeSite="\\aa-uss-1\QETools" />
    
    </PackageFiles>

  • Hello John,

    You should specify the full path of qesetup.exe file. Like \\aa-uss-1\QETools\qesetup.exe. Please let me know if it works.

  • Yes, that is the answer!

    I don't think that the MSDN library entry for <PackageFiles> is worded very well for someone who is just beginning to understand these concepts. I added an entry to the Community Content that I hope makes it easier.
