I searched the message board but found no reference to my issue so here it goes....

i have some packages that i have bundled SAp 6.4 visio 2003 project 2003
if SAP 6.4 is installed first Visio 2003 and project 2003 will not install during the install they launch some SAP excel tool then bomb out.

the only thing i get in the event log is that the msi failed to install (duh)

anyone have a clue how to resolve this?

thanks in advance for your help

How did you package Visio and Project? Ideal method is with the ORK from microsoft. Otherwise you're almost guaranteed problems.

When you say bundled do you mean you packaged them all together in one installation? Not advisable. Use the ORK for the msft apps, and use the optimal tool (whether setup capture, installshield, script, or whatever) for your SAP application.

yes i did use ork to bundle both visio and project ( the bundle part is just a self extracting rar that launches the msi with the tranform and the /qb- switch) no they are not bundled together.

SAP6.4 is a similar method using sap's command line unattended install also rar'd

sorry i was more specific before :)

Most of the times SAP applications requires reboot after they install when you are using your SAP command line options.. when some other installation is attempted it tries to give a message box stating the earlier installation requires reboot.

Does this information finds some help for you?
