Hi Folks,

i've got a big problem and I hope that anyone from you can give me a hint.

The situation:
I have to deploy BentleyView 8.1.2 from Bentley to a few clients. I took a look at the original setup and I was nice surprised that it is a Installshield setup. So I create a setup.iss file using the setup.exe -r commandline option. After that I try to install BentleyView on a clean machine "manually" by using setup.exe -s. That works fine! Now I have created a Tivoli Software Package and imported it into Tivoli.
No problem until now ... things I've done often before.

The Problem:
When I install that package on any machine I got a ResultCode=-3 (required data not found in setup.iss) in setup.log. I already have tried to create a new setup.iss but it looks always like the first one. Does anyone have an idea what is wrong?

Nice greetings
Oliver

You might try wrapping the command in a script/batch that maps a drive to the source and then changes to the current directory before execution. It may not be pretty, but I've had similar situations where I encountered this problem and that did the trick for me.

I'm perplexed by this

C:\Programme\BentleyView\

Is this an undeclared variable or the the place you actually want to install it to. Could the install be looking here for the source files?
