the applicationa is working fine with machine install.

Got it working folks,


syntax
msiexec -jm <msi> -t <mst>

I thought itwas working fine but it came back.

now that it installs. It has new problem.

After we click on the short cut it installs and after that
it pops up an error message

"the application has failed to start because the application configuration is in correct. Reinstalling the application may fix the problem.'

can anyone suggest on this error.

Thanqs

Ram.

Wow! Do you think - just maybe - that ProcMon is telling you that a file/folder was not present when it tells you that?

Do you also think - just maybe - that it *might* have helped if you had explained this in your first post?

But when i do the machine install then it does install completely.
can you please let me know why it happens.

Hi All,
I also checked what features it is installing. It is only installing one feature.
I double checked it i made all feature enabled for advertised install. Is there anything I am missing here.

Is there anything I can do to force install the features.

Any suggesstions.

Thankyou
Ram.

Ram, you need to do some more reading, I'm afraid. Advertising does exactly that - it advertises to the machine/user that an application is available for installation and does NOT install that application. The installation will occur when the user double-clicks on an advertised shortcut, or loads a file whose extension has an advertised entry-point. Suggested reading:

- http://www.installsite.org/pages/en/w2k_aboutmsi.htm
- Section 2.6 of this article http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms995833.aspx

A search of AppDeploy will turn plenty up, too.
