Why did you do that?

The first thing to do in situations like this is to take a verbose log of the install. That will tell you which component is causing the call to the unobtainable resource. Try that first and report back.

Why did you do that?

Etc...

I dont have log because the install fails in the first moment.

http://consumerdocs.installshield.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=Q110724&sliceId=1In that case, your post ought to have read "I have edited the Registry table...". The way you expressed it, it sounded like you had removed the entries from the actual registry.

If these (and similar) entries are being captured, it sounds like you need to add to AS's exclusion list, i.e. the list of folders, files and registry entries which it ignores when capturing. IIRC, there is a set of ready-rolled exclusions on the Installsite.org web site.

You have reason, I have not explained well. I speak badly English.
Does nobody know for that this happens to me? The msi is generated by 0 mistakes and 0 warnings.

The problem is that the shellfolder has been "redirected" to a network resource which the system account do not have access to.
If you do not have any files to be installed to this folder then just delete the entry pointing to the "ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS" folder in the Directory table and you should be safe.

As long as the directories/properties you remove are not used anywhere then yes, that should be the correct way to prevent the error from occuring.

Use your packaging tool's validation facility to validate the MSI. That will highlight which entry is in error. If you are using Wise Package Studio, the Direct Editor view of the Directory table will highlight in red rows which are in error.

If you can't find the tool to perform ICE validation then just open the MSI in InstEd (or ORCA) and run the validation from there.
