Hi guys, I am trying to pack a hidieous app called SAS with Wise Package Studio 5. But that's not my problem. My issue is that I have an MSI that I have created that compiles and verifies fine, but errors on install. Giving a 2732.0 error. Does anyone know any thing about this error? According to this site's error list it's a "Directory Manager not initialized". What does that mean?

Any takers?

Hi GazzaJagMan,

According to http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/msi/setup/windows_installer_error_messages.asp

The directory manager is responsible for determining the target and source paths. It is initialized during the costing actions (CostInitialize action, FileCost action, and CostFinalize action). A standard action or custom action made a call to a function requiring the directory manager before the initialization of the directory manager. This action should be sequenced after the costing actions.

Therefore, i would look at your custom actions and the sequences of them. Do a full log (msiexec /i %pathtoMSI% /L*v %pathtologfile%) and see which custom action is causing the error.

Hope that helps
