hi I am working on an application the contains over 10,000 files. I have repackaged it and when I tried to convert the IRP to an ISM i get an unknown error. the Conversion does creat a blank ISM file. Below is the exact error I get. Any help is greatly appreciated.

No INSTALLDIR definition was found in the Options.ini file. This may lead to unexpected results unless a suitable value exists in the project template.
Loading registry entries
Creating components for the files captured
An unknown error occurred
Conversion completed with 1 warning(s).

I don't know whether creating a verbose log of the IRP -> ISM conversion would shed any more light on this, but you could try.

To debug this, under the following registry key create the string values:-

DebugFile = C:\Inc2Msi.log
DebugRepackager = 5

DebugLogLevel = 3

The file C:\Inc2Msi.log will tell you the last entry made in the log file before the conversion failed. This will hopefully give you some further insight for troubleshooting purposes.
