Hi All,

I am trying to create an MST for the vendor MSI(setupwp.msi) for the product Word Perfect Office 12 .

If i try to install the mst created from the MSI without doing any changes to the MST , the mst fails to install and throws the following error. UNABLE TO MERGE NEW CONFIGURATION. USE BDE ADMINISTRATOR TO MERGE YOUR NEW CONFIGURATION.

if i try to some chages to the msi itself and install then also i am getting the same error.

Please can anyone help me in this regard.

Hi Anitha,

Are you trying to configure the Borland Database (Is the BDE Merge module installed by the MSI)?
Is the BDEMerge.INI available with the sources?

I've seen this error a couple of times and the solutions can be:
1) place the BDEMERGE.INI file with the configurations beside the MSI when installing.
2) Install BDE before your application.

Hope this helps,
