The red colour on the compoents indicates the mismatch. You need to check component table, directory table etc to see if there is any relation mismatch.
Donot delete the components because they appear in red colout. Deleting the component deletes the application file from your msi.

In Component view, Right click the 'Red' component, :) and then click 'Show Errors'.

Yes I know Ian, I was trying to make them learn themselves. Its a basic query posted by OP.
As a packager, he should know it :)

If your intention was to teach, then advice like that which Sandy (WiseAppPackager) gave would have been more suitable. Remember that people use old posts as a kind of knowledgebase: if Sandy hadn't posted his advice, someone in the future might come across your advice and think that that was the fix for the problem.

Anyway, it's clear that there are a bunch of posters here (we know how to recognise them, thanks to timmsie) who are engaged in packaging by some mug client and who have no clue what they're doing. I, for one, will no longer respond to their idiot questions.

i have to agree with Ian. how is it possible to package without knowing this basic stuff?

if i start packaging and notice red components, i would start by looking why the component is red, not delete them and wonder why my package does not work.

simple logic!

It's much like the solution in this thread:

Which could well be the same user under a different name!!

Take it easy people...BTW, red components are not all bad and sometimes can be safely IGNORED at least on cases where some components are from 16-bit files. I usually encounter them with ODBC 16 bit and those 16-bit files resides in one Component if you captured them by snapshot on Wise. I can´t remember if these red components produces an ICE error but I think not. If you have a keen QA, better to put your reasons why you left them in RED. [;)]

Dear speedwsi,

First learn the component rules so that u will get to know y the red mark is coming for components.

If you hit the "show errors" on component also that will show the corresponding component rule.

The pain is due to laughing so much at your fatuous assertion.

Ian, you have to agree on this - any kind of publicity works and attracts replies. The more bizzare & nonsense he talks, he is sure to get noticed.

speedwsi, (or whosoever you are) - Do you want to be remembered as someone who gets more bad remarks than good? like reality show characters...

Guys, this has already become a bad thread on AppDeploy unknowingly. Please cool down.

Request for everyone, Please donot post simple/elementary questions which a novice in application packaging should know. Either try to resolve yourselves OR search in Google OR get trained on Application Packaging/Windows Installer. If all doesn't work your way, you are not fit for packaging job better give it away.

Since AdminStudio doesn't show "red" components, it is Wise Package Studio that is being used.

So for those who are new to packaging, here is a tip - there is this really cool and useful key you can hit anytime you have a question about your package. It's the F1 key and is located just to the right of the ESC key at the top left corner on most keyboards. Try using that first.

Another tip - in WPS, you can select the item you are needing more information on, then hit/press (your choice) the F1 key and it will bring context sensitive help on the selected item (most of the time).

Google is also a good choice for finding answers to your packaging questions.

After trying the above and you are still not getting your answer, please post a message - but state what you have tried first and then ask the question. You're more likely to get a good response that way.

Fine veteran packagers like VSScab are more than willing to help but you should show them that you have tried to find the answer yourself first.

i know all component rules Sreedharko

If you really know all the component rules then you would know that components usually need to have a keyfile set and that is the most common reason for a red component other than having multiple binaries like DLLs or EXEs in one component.

And since you already know all the component rules, you must surely already know why your components are red and if they need to be "fixed" or not.

Well, I was commenting on your statement that you know ALL component rules. Now you say you know "some" component rules.

If you do as you were advised to do by right-clicking the component and selecting show errors, you'll know what is wrong and can fix it.
