While using WISE package studio;

I'm creating a transform for TRUEVIEW 2007 from Autodesk. After the transform has been created I make some changes in the default registry settings (under HKCU\..\profiles) and modify the default path to the shortcut.

When I try to save or compile the transform and point to the original MSI it returns with the following message;

"Saving an .MSI file requires an enabled release with a blank file name."

WTF is that about?!?

Has anyone had this error and can anyone tell me the proper solution to this problem?

Hi there ,


Go to release Definiton section and click on Releases , try giving a name say Wise or the pkg name to the default one which is appearing on the list .

Problem is back...
[&o]
It worked one time and now it doesn't...

No matter what release name I give it, it keeps giving the same error.

If TRUEVIEW 2007 wasn't created with Wise from the beginning by Autodesk (maybe installshield) then use ORCA instead as there may be times when such packages may not work with Wise. WPS or WfWi adds default tables and table entries that may shouldn't be included in the mst. So try create your transform or modify the created with wise in ORCA and delete any default wise tables/entries and resolved property values before generate a new.

I had the same error with AutoCAD LT 2009 - Edited directly with ORCA and managed to save the Transform

Saw the same error with editing the .MST from AutoCAD 2011. In the Releases page of W.P.S, I added a check for the "Build this release during compile" of the default release.

As long as I've been using Wise, it has been standard practise at ALL the shops I've worked in to set the MSI's read-only attribute before loading it into anything, but particularly in Wise, precisely to prevent it adding its tables.

In this case, Wise didn't touch the MSI. I thought it was odd that it crapped out on saving a transform because the MSI was set to RO, but changing the MSI attributes works.

Might have something to do with using W.P.S. ver. 5.6...
