hi all,

i have created a package which contains the SQLBASE.MSM merge module and when i test the package i have the following error;

Setup requires Internet Explorer version 5.0.2314.0 or above

on the test machine, i have ie 6.0 installed.

i have tried googling it and i saw that the sql server service pack has a MM fixed. but when i tried it, i still get the error.

can someone help me get rid of this crap?

thanks!

As in so many cases, the information you need is already here. You can either edit the MM to eliminate the error http://www.installsite.org/pages/en/bugs_msi.htm. or, better, don't use the MM and install MSDE silently using the stub provided.

yes vbscab, i saw that page but honestly i don't see the pertinent information about my problem in there.

maybe it's because english isn't my first language, i'm not sure, but i can't see it.

could you please tell me which part i should check?

thank you very much!

ok i have tried what is in the page, ie changing the drlocation from [systemfolder.something] to [systemfolder] and i have the same error.

i also have changed the language string from 0 to 1033, again no success.

is there something else i can try?

thanks!

Which is it? You've either changed it or you haven't. From what I recall, this is the crucial change.

sorry for the misunderstanding.

in the string [SystemFoler.SomeValue] i have removed .SomeValue without editing the rest of the string.

so if i leave [SystemFolder] it ain't working either.

thanks!
