Trying to get a MSI package from Bluebeam software's latest version of Pushbutton PDF (apparently their earlier version had a network install that worked).

The Installshield /a switch worked to extract the package, but when I try to run the msi file it returns the message:
"1: This installation cannot be run by directly launching the MSI package, you must run setup.exe."
Does anyone know of a work around for this?

I also tried repackaging with Winstall LE but got the infamous "could not access network location WIndowsFolder\" error.

Thanks.

With programs that report you need to install from setup.exe you need to go in and modify the install sequence and remove a (custom) action. I don't know which software, if at all, that you can use to modify the install, but you can enable verbose logging /L* or /Lv and figure out the exact name of the action that is being called before it errors out in the message "you need to run from setup.exe"
