Hi there.
Im taking a snapshot using adminstudio version 6.
When trying to subsequently build my msi,
I am receiving an error ISDEV : error -1024: The source file "C:\Packages\MyappPackage\WindowsFolder\Installer\[\{]807B1E67-FF69-4170-A835-E4B2C8A1D389[\}]linksIcon.exe" for Icon Icon_linksIcon.exe does not exist.
.
I cant seem to find any info regarding how to rectify this specific problem.
Can anyone possibly provide me with some info?
would be greatly appreciated!
Many thanks.

Hi there.
Thanks for the reply.
After a little further investigaion i found that im installing the application as administrator so its performing a per-machine installation.The links icons should be installed under %USERPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\Installer\{ProductCode GUID}
The problem is, when i want to take the snapshot, i dont want to perform a per-machine installation which is the only option i have as i can only install the app logged in as administrator.I want a per-user installation.
Any ideas?
Thanks again! :)

THanks for the reply.
I know what your getting at, but im just wondering if it would be possible to a
snapshot of a per-user installation as opposed to a per machine installation so
that i can eliminate the above error when i initially build the msi, immediately
after the snapshot...if you know what i mean!
thanks again
best regards.

hi there..

sorry for the confusion.. =D

if its the behaviour of the actual installer.. and no option is avaible for per user.. I don't think there's a way of doing that...

hhmm, yeh maybe.
But the annoying thing, is that after I install the app and have taken the snapshots,
there is no icons or shortcuts under %WINDOWS%\Installer\{ProductCode},
that directory doesnt even exist and i installed my app as administrator!!
AARGH!

hmmm...

So what is really the problem?? The build warning?? If that so.. search for the entry that reference to the icon and delete it... better to do.. redirect your icon to the actual path of the exe..

Im afraid im lost.
I cant understand the following directory which should reside on my development machine after teh snapshot "C:\Packages\MyappPackage\WindowsFolder\Installer\[\{]807B1E67-FF69-4170-A835-E4B2C8A1D389[\}]linksIcon.exe". After the snapshot is taken i search the directory where the packaged files are dumped on my development machine. I also search the app folders on the machine i took the snapshot on but i cant anything similar to the above directory on either machines. This is really bugging me. I can see why I am receiving the above error but why the above directory path doesnt exist.
Thanks for any info!
regards.

Hi there..
I suggest look for the entry in your ISM for this icon... in the tables..
Where is it used?? In the shortcut??

If you during your snapshot captured the "WindowsFolder\Installer\[\{]807B1E67-FF69-4170-A835-E4B2C8A1D389[\}]linksIcon.exe" file you have installed an MSI you were trying to snapshot, true?

Use a transform instead for modifying MSIs.
