I am creating a msi package for the MDAC 2.8. I used the Install Editor and created the script as follows:
Execute Program from Installation Command Line /q:a /c:\"dasetup.exe /q /n\".
When I compile it goes thru fine. When I run i get the following:
"Error 1722. There is a problem with the Installer package etc" I click Ok then:
"Installation ended prematurely because of a error"
When I check the version of MDAC it says it is upgraded.
Any ideas?

I get this error occassionally, too.

This error means that something went wrong with your command line...

Specifically, it means that whatever exe you're running has returned an Exit Code that is NOT 0 (0 means proper execution).

It's almost impossible to troubleshoot this from withing your MSI environment, so make sure your parameters work properly from a Command Prompt first...

One thing... are you SURE you want to be installing the MDAC exe and NOT the MDAC merge modules? I respectfully suggest that using a Merge Module is safer...

Good luck!

What I did was comment out all entries in the MSI Script and just ran the exe with all the switches, and it worked.

Hope this helps u also
