Hi

I am very new to application packaging and I face a problem.
I created a package for XDE developer for Java 2003.06.15. I need to install it in D drive. I have added ROOTDRIVE property and also when installing I have used INSTALLDIR property..
The application is getting installed but an executable XDE.exe is not working. Its working if I install it in C drive. Also if I install the given setup file in D:\ , the .exe is working.

Can anyone help me please?

Thanks in advance.

First, for installation issues, install with a verbose log. This will help isolate exactly where issues occur:

MSIEXEC /i [path_to_and_name_of_MSI] /l*v [path_to_and_name_of_log_file]

Second, for application issues, use ProcMon to monitor in real time what the app is doing file and registry access-wise.

Try this way

default INSTALLDIR : C:\Program Files\Dir1
Change to D:\Program Files\Dir1

1. In the MSI Script create a custom action In "User Interface" just after "Cost Finalize"
"Set Directory" give it a Name , choose the directory by browsing to ProgramFilesFolder\Dir1 and in the third Blank Space enter "D:\Program Files\Dir1"

2. Create the same Custom action in "Execute Immediate" just after "Cost Finalize" also

This installation works fine as long as D: is a valid Drive, it does not work on drives that were created using "Subst.exe" Command.
