MSI Error 2709 - Workaround?
I have a moderate knowledge of MSI files and how they work, Most of which i have learnt from reading these forums! I therefore hope that someone else reading this gets an answer that they were looking for one day :)
I am using LANDesk profile migration to migrate user profiles whilst deploying our new SOE. In general the LANDesk PF migration creates and MSI and a whole swag of cab files that it then 'reinstalls' when the SOE has been applied to the machine, and thus restoring the users Data.
Even though i have selected the migration to bail out if it comes across an error, i have a backed up profile that when restoring throws an error in the log file as follows;
DEBUG: Error 2709: The specified Component name (Filename - Audio File (Apr 07).htm_6860') not found in Component Table.
The funny thing is that it displays that error in both the capture and restore MSI log files.
SO... im wondering if there is a way that i can edit the MSI file, and somehow remove all references to the above Filename from the MSI? Will this then simply just skip that file..?
OR with this error is it better to try and add the above reference somehow to the component table, and achieve success that way?
Any help or ideas are greatly appreaciated here! There is a little bit of heat on me to restore this data! :)
so that the conversation will remain readable.
