Hi Friends,

I am having a issue while installing AutoCAD LT 2009 as a standalone i.e by using the msi provided in the application folder. The OS is Windows Vista Enterprise edition 32 bit. When trying to install using the setup.exe the installation completes successfully and i am having no issues but when trying to install via msi i am getting 2 blank pop-up boxes on which after clicking ok the installation completes and this occurs while installaing via qb mode. once the installation is done and i try to launch the application it throws the following error : - "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000142). Click OK to terminate the application." I have already installed the application dependencies such as msxml parser and VC++ redistributable available with the application itself but to no avail. kindly advise if any of you have encountered similar issues and if you have any resolution for the same.

Clearly the set-up stub is installing additional items, most likely performing some DLL registration or similar.

Proceed as you would if you had captured the install, i.e.:

- run your MSI, including any transform
- start a lightweight snapshotting tool, like InstallWatch or In Control and take a 'Before' snapshot
- rename the relevant 'Uninstall' registry key, to prevent the engine triggering a repair/modify/remove action
- run the set-up stub
- take an 'After snapshot

Incorporate any relevant changes into your transform.

Now you need to use monitoring tools to see what's happening. My guess is that the app is trying to access protected areas of the file system or registry. ProcMon will show you what's going on.

Presumably you've read the 'Package KB' notes? http://itninja.com/link/mapobjects-2.1-file-requirements-for-deploying-applications8

Check with filemon/regmonIt always pays to read the entire thread before responding :)

@Ravindranath, it sounds like you need to fine-tune ProcMon and learn how to use it properly.

Set the filter to exclude the processes you're not interested in, particularly any a/v, stuff like svchost.exe, explorer.exe and so on. Otherwise, the output window is too cluttered. Once you have it set up, stop the capture IMMEDIATELY after the error message appears. Then you need to examine the last 3 or 4 screens of output. Remember that you can selectively "turn off" the view so that you only see, for example, file activity. You can then turn that off and view just registry activity.

Lastly, is the set-up stub authored in InstallShield, do you know? IIRC, there's a tool in IS AdminStudio (you can d/l a trial version to get this done) which can handle IS-authored stubs. If I was on my regular machine, I'd load up the VM I have with AS in it and be more specific. Someone else may know what that is and how to get to it.

Ravindranath,
Does your vendor MSI itself shows up this error in Vista? or it is only after applying transforms?
