Guys,

Just wondering if anyone else has seen this, worked out what causes it and how to get around it without recreating the MST file.

Secondary (right) mouse click on an MST file > Properties.
Go to 'Summary' tab and try to add a value into any of the fileds there.
Clicking 'OK' or 'Apply' pops up an error with the title of 'Summary Properties' and the text just says 'Unspecified error', and doesn't save the value.

Apart from 'Category' and 'Source' fields that will accept a vaule and keep it.

The file isn't read only, I can obviously modify a couple of the fields, but not the others. The guys in the office have seen this before and you can modify the properties if you open the MST in Installshield and save it back out - just not directly.

Anyone?

Thanks,

Dunnpy

tried trusty Procmon to see what's happening but that's not helped! Snap! All file operations show as 'SUCCESS'. I guess it's an Explorer "gotcha". Who'd like to log that on Windows Installer Team's blog on MSDN? I would but cannot currently get access where I'm working.

Ian,

I'm on the blog site, but can't see where to post - is there a forum that I need?

Thanks,

Paul, it looks like the blog is pretty much abandoned, doesn't it? The last was eons ago.

Try here: this forum seems to have the highest number of posts relevant to WI. Additionally, if it's an Explorer problem (as I suspect), this is more generic.
