Hi

I am really new to packaging, and I recieved this error while trying to install one of my packages.

Now, I know the error means that the "Specified path is empty" but I have no idea how to go about find out which path it is.

I logged my installation with /Le, it only logged the error code.

If anyone could point me in the right direction?

Oh, secondly - before I had this problem I was faced with another. Whenever I install my package, none of the actual files are installed, just the files required to start the installation! The shortcut specifies "Installs on first run". The only things I changed are the properties of soem of my features, from hidden to visiable, "always install". This might have something to do with before mentioned error.

Thanx

Hello,

Do a search on this website for "2343". There are many references to this error message. This error is usually to do with the Directory table.

Only errors I can find (that I can see are errors) are 3 folders in the CreateFolder table.

Could this cause it?

Oh, for what its worth, Im creating the msi for AutoCAD 2000 for distribution over sms.

Sorted it out. Was a problem under Directory like you said, was trying to access folders on another user's profile. [;)]

Now just the 1191 error to sort out...

1191? Never heard of that error in Windows Installer before?

btw - how is Cape Town these days? I remember a beach called Sandy Bay. Still there and still the same?

That, my friend, was an unfortunate typo:
Its actually error code 1911. Anyway, I sorted that out, was trying to register some files that didn't want to be registered, so a bit of drone work changing all the file registration settings sorted that out.

Now, I faced with (hopefully) only one more dilemma. Error code 1912, six of my files are giving this error. First, it throws 1912 ona certain file, telling me it couldn't "unregister" the file, then it swings directly into an error 1911 again telling me it couldn't register the file...strange indeed. They are .tbl files, so obviously they won't have to register and they are set as such (not to register) but ya, anyone know why?

Oh, and on the Cape Town topic....Sandy Bay is definitely still there, you're such a tourist :)
Not sure Table Mountain is still tho, my desk faces it and I can't see it through all the smoke (www.news24.com).

Check your advertising tables. They might contain information on the .tlb files.

In the past, I've been forced into using the utility called regtlb.exe.

I did hear about Table Mountain burning down. From the photos it looks very close to some buildings! Keep safe.

Recreated my msi, and the only problem that remains is this:

Info 1912. Could not unregister type library for file C:\Program Files\ACAD2000\EXPRESS\axrtext.tlb. Contact your support personnel.
Error 1911. Could not register type library for file C:\Program Files\ACAD2000\EXPRESS\axrtext.tlb. Contact your support personnel.
MSI (s) (84:B4): Product: AutoCAD2000 -- Error 1911. Could not register type library for file C:\Program Files\ACAD2000\EXPRESS\axrtext.tlb. Contact your support personnel.


It seems like its trying to un-register the file, and then register it again, something like that. Very confusing. The files are not set to self-register atm, if I do it still throws the same error.

Have you ensured that the Advertising tables don't include any data relevant to this type-library file?

Does this file already exist on the target computer in the same folder?

No, these files (always the same 6) install under the application folder, in their various subfolders and the root.

My advertising table is empty.
