If you are using WPS, goto Component view, right click the 'Red' component, click 'Show Errors'.

I guess, from your nickname, that you're working for HP, probably at an outsourced offshore company?

Do they know that they're employing people who have no clue what they're doing? Have you even heard of package validation?

There are various reasons for the red component .

In installshield if u don associate the component to a feature it will be red component.

Where as in Wise if there is more than one exe or dll present in one component as per validation it shows red component stating the error with the component rule of one exe and one dll per component to make the self heal more efficient.

Hi Hp,

you can use the method as said bu sandeep as well as:
Do full validation using darice.cub in orca and refer MSDN for component rules and other ICE errors for RED COMPONENTS.

Leave the red components in your package. They simply mean, "Uninstalled Components". Count how many red components you have. That indicates the number of installs before your package has satisfied the number of pre-installs required for a full install.

So let's say you have 12 red components. After installing on the first 12 machines, they should turn green which of course means successful installation. Now if they don't turn green, you will have to revisit these components and issue the property (into the property table), "ARPCRAYOLA=GRN(12)", whereas 12 is equal to the number of initial red components. Let's say you install and only 6 of those components turn green. Add another property, "ARPCRAYOLA=GRN(6)"... Repeat the process until you have no more reds left.

Hope this helps. Please post your logfile after the first "ARPCRAYOLA" so we can help you out a bit more. Troubleshooting is kind of useless without a log file.

They simply mean, "Uninstalled Components".Huh? I don't think so! My guess is that the OP is using Wise Package Studio and is looking at the 'Components' tab in the 'Direct Editor' view. The normal reason for the red display is if the component has no key path.

Wow! Did I just pull a quick one on you?

Not really. Given the level of "knowledge" shown here on AD lately, I wanted to ensure that the posters weren't sent on a wild goose chase. Besides, sarcasm is utterly wasted on such people.
