Hi all, I am very new to packaging and deploying software and this is my first post here. I built a computer with a clean software image (XP SP2 w/all updates) ran WinInstall LE 2003 Discover, and then installed, configured, updated, and registered Quickbooks Pro 2003.

I then ran Discover again, completed the image with zero errors and attempted to push the app down via Group Policy in a 2003 domain. Deployment looked ok, no errors in the event viewer, but when I try to launch the app, I will get the same three errors repeated dozens of times before the app will launch. The app does launch, but not until I get through all these errors. Can anyone out there give me some advice on how to correct this? Thanks.

Errors received:

Product: Quickbooks Pro 2003 - 10.27.2005 -- Error 1306. Another application has exclusive access to the file 'C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\Logs\tmp.edb'. Please shut down all other applications, then click Retry.

Thanks,

Welcome to the frustrating art/science of packaging.

You need to clean up your MSI after you capture it. It will have a bunch of noise in it that will cause it to crap out on install.

Take any log or temporary files out of your package in most cases.
'C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\Logs\tmp.edb'
Is most likely noise that's locked by another program on install. Take it out.

'C:\Program Files\Intuit\QuickBooks Pro\Components\TI\TRACKING.ETCF' Open the MSI and make sure this component has the file listed in it.
