Hi,

Just go to the File table and for that respective file which throws the 1325 error, check the value under FileName coulmn it should have value such as for e.g <shortname>|filename i.e SLCons~1.exe|SLConsole.exe

if not, then check if the filename is very long and define the shortname wilth 8.3 format as shown above.else it is already defined in the File table then check whether the shortname is having the 8.3 format..

Hi, I'm sorry but could you be a little more specific, I didnt quite understand what to look for in the File table.

Thanks

Check in the File Table for column filename whether the value of the file is having <shortname|long> name as suggested above. If not then need to define it.

for e.g if the filename is orcaedit.exe which is more than eight char so we need to define the shortname

so the value in the filename column will be now orca~1|orcaedit.exe

Almost...except, of course, 'orcaedit.exe' fits the 8.3 form, plus you omitted the '.exe' extension.

If the Filename entry's long form is 'someprogramorother.exe', then you need to add the short, 8.3 form as a prefix, with the vertical bar character '|' in between both, i.e. 'somepr~1.exe|someprogramorother.exe'.

try to extract the contents of MSI to an AIP with SHORTFILENAMES=TRUE in the command line.
If you receive any error stating that any particular files is not in SHORTFILENAMES format. Modify those files into 8.3
