Ok, another Newbie Question waring.


I purchased The "Repackaging and Application Migration using AdminStudio" course. The course came with a disk containing sample projects (exercises). I have been trying to work with the "Sample App 3000" ism file. I ran the "Full MSI Validation Suite" under the Build > Validate menu as the course instructs to do. I receive the following error:

The directory SAMPLE_APP1 is in the user profile but is not listed in the RemoveFile table. http://dartools/iceman/ice64.html Directory Directory SAMPLE_APP1 Error Code: ICE64

Don't ask me what the web address is about I haven't a clue.

When I double click the error I am taken to the Direct Editor "Directory" table. Highlighted in "red" is the following information. There are other columns but those are blank so I didn't include them here.



Directory - (s72) = SAMPLE_APP1
Directory_Parent -(S72) = PersonalFolder
DefaultDir -(l255) = SAMPLE~1|Sample App
ISAttributes -(14) = 0

The data above is actually formatted in Rows and Columns in the editor but because the formatting doesn’t hold up in a simple text editor I rearranged it into a simple list



When I navigate to the RemoveFiles table I see this:

Once again these are actually column headings


FileKey -(s72)
Component_-(S72)
FileName -(L255)
DirProperty - (S72)
InstallMode - (i2)


It is my understanding that if I want to remove a folder I should leave the file columns blank. When I click on the Component column I get a drop down menu so I must choose one of the predefined properties. None of the properties I can choose from correspond to what I'm seeing in the "Directory" table.

Its also my understanding that if I want the file removed during an uninstall I need to set the InstallMode = 2.

No matter what I put in the columns under the RemoveFile table I keep getting the same "The directory SAMPLE_APP1 is in the user profile but is not listed in the RemoveFile table. http://dartools/iceman/ice64.html Directory Directory SAMPLE_APP1 Error Code ICE64" error.

How can I translate what I'm seeing in the "Directory" table into valid entries in the RemoveFile table? Is there a guide or a utility that can translate this information for me? I know it's just a sample exercise but if I can't get it right here I won't be able to get it right when I really need to.



Thank You

There's a good example of how to fix an ICE64 error in this URL:

Scroll down the page to ICE64. I hope that helps.

With the power of Google, though, the question lingers for who-knows-how-long, and answers continue to be helpful more or less indefinitely (if not for the original poster, then for the bewildered Googler of present time [;)] ).

In other words, the reply helped me [:D].
