Hi,

Has anyone faced this problem before. I have a Blackberry 4.2.2 setup. It has an MSI. When I try to install the msi the log says ROT table entry not found. In the log there is one more error which 1603. It also pops up a mesg box saying Error Number: 0x80040706 Description: Object reference not set... setup will terminate. when I looked at the installation log the last line says MainengineThread is returning 1603.
Any Ideas, Help will be appreciated....

Thanks,
Ak

Do you have any old installations of Blackberry installed?
Have any copies of Blackberry MSI been cached - %windir%\Installer.

Clearly Setup is doing stuff to the machine. In this scenario, my gambit would be to set up a capture up to the point where the MSI is being executed. You can then use that as a pre-requisite for the Blackberry MSI. I just did this exercise for MSDE 2005 which writes all sorts of crap to the registry and the file system before the MSI is started.

I would agree with VBScab, although I would just run the setup.exe wrapper and install silently that way. It probably utilizes the Installshield w/MSI switches.. you can run it from within a batch file if you find that easier for deployment reasons.

Setup.exe /s /v"/qb"

I thought Blackberry Desktop Manager was an Installscript MSI?
