Hi,
i am installing Emptoris Contract Management tool(vendor MSI). while installing they provided the default installation directory as C:\Emptoris_Contract_Management. but as per my requirement i have to install it in C:\Program Files (x86)\Emptoris_Contract_Management. but when i browse that folder, the application is getting installed and finally i am gettign an error like
windows can not find "C:\Program". make sure you typed the name correctly,and then try again.

If I understand you correctly the application is failing when installed in a path that has spaces in it. If you're lucky there might be a registry entry, ini entry or other setting somewhere that contains this path, and maybe you can surround it with quotes. If you're not so lucky you might have to accept the application cannot deal with spaces in its install path and need to either look into shimming it if it's for Windows 7, or accepting the situation and installing to C:\Emptoris_Contract_Management afterall.

hi,
thanks for quick reply. i have tried while giving the path "C:\program files..." like this. but its saying that can not find the folder. when i tried to edit the msi with orca, there was one setting for APPDIR,with value=C:\Emptoris_Contract_Management. here i changed to C:\Program files (x86)\Emptoris_Contract_Management\". then i am getting this path to install. but i have one custom action internall, it running one .bat file, there i have verified but i dont know where its taking the this arugument as input. i am not able to resolve this.

It sounds to me like the error is occuring when the application's shortcut is clicked rather than at installation time. If that's the case, your attention should turn to the Shortcut table. I'll bet the packager hasn't accounted for long filenames.

Three guys go to a ski lodge, and there aren't enough rooms, so they have to share a bed. In the middle of the night, the guy on the right wakes up and says, "I had this wild, vivid dream of getting a hand job!" The guy on the left wakes up, and unbelievably, he's had the same dream, too. Then the guy in the middle wakes up and says, "That's funny, I dreamed I was skiing!" ( just a joke )

You'll usually see "Failed to find c:\program" because whatever you're running doesn't understand that space in your path name. So it looks for c:\program and then thinks "files" is a paramenter, followed by the parameter "(x86)". A little more detail would be useful: what are you launching when you see this error and where is whatever it is?
