Custom Installer Setup Fails RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey Everyone,

     

    I am attempting to create a Smart Device setup package using the "Using Setup Projects to Deploy Windows Mobile 5.0 Applications" tutorial found at http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsmobile/bb264341.aspx.  I go through all the steps, but when I run the installation and it gets to the end it throws an exception (accomplished using the 2869 error fix here http://www.shahine.com/omar/VSTOAddinsAndVista.aspx) which says:

     

    Error 1001: Exception occurred while initializing the installation: System.ArgumentException: File = does not exist.  If this parameter is used as an installer option, the format must be /key=[value].

     

    This error occurs during both a regular installation and an Administrative Installation in Vista.  Has anyone else gotten one of these things to work successfully under Vista?

     

    Thanks,

    Matt

  • It's pretty clear this is coming from custom action which can't find some file.

    Change the custom action code to pop up message box, then attach debugger and see which file is missing.
