I'm trying to package an app called perforce. When I try to compile the file I get the error.

File with key tmp.edb located at C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\Logs\tmp.edb could not be compressed. This may be a temporary file location. Make sure file tmp.edb has a source path.


& the MSI file is never created. Any Ideas why this happens?

Thanks

I don't think you want to package that file (in fact I'm pretty sure you don't)!

Just delete it from your project - you should be fine.

Hi you can go ahead and delete the SoftwareDistribution Directory as you dont need the directory or any of those files in your application.

I'm using Wise. The problem was that the MSI file wasn't being created. I think the problem was that there was a dot (.) in part of the filename. I removed it and now am able to package the file as a MSI

The C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution directory is part of the "Windows Update" and this is it's root directory.
Make sure you disable the WU service when repackaging.
