When i install the application in the win 7 while launching the shortcut it is asking that the MSVBVM50.dll is missing .But i have checked in the Win XP the particular file is not present and win7 is asking for that particular file.If i place it in the mst under the "File tab" in installation expert .When i install the application along with the mst the dll file is not installing in the destination folder .But if i place the dll in the folder manually it is working fine.

And also there is an entry in the wise source path table also after compiling the mst.


Any answers would be much appreciated.

MSVBVM50.dll is a VB5 runtime DLL. I don't believe its supported on Win7.

You can try to install the VB5 runtime files. Download it here : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/180071

The file in question is part of Microsoft Visual Basic 5.0 Run-Time, the installer for which can be downloaded here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/180071


You can either install the run-times as a pre-req for your application, negating the need to add it directly to the package, or add it to your package with an MST - as you described.


It's been a while since I have used Wise so I can't remember the specifics -but are you getting a .cab file from your compile, or is there a flat file structure appearing where your MSI/MST lives? If it's flat, then the installer is expect that folder structure to be present in the same location when you install the MSI/MST. If it's a .cab, then that file needs to be in the same location as your MSI/MST when installing.

Is there an entry in file table for the .dll?

What's its sequence number?

What does the media table say about that sequence number and where the file is?

Hope that gives you something to investigate further.
