Hi,

I am working on Winzip 14.5 pro, Application is working fine when I repair it from ARP but does not work when I was trying to Self Heal the application.

In above case I have renamed the folder C:\Program Files\WinZip and I am trying to launch the application from its shortcut, it giving me the following message prompt,

Unable to install over the MSI version of the installtion.Please obtain the version or uninstall WinZip first.

This is venor msi.

Please help me to solve above issue.

Thanks,

Rupesh.

What do you mean when you say you were trying to self-heal? Self-healing is exactly that - the application self-heals by replacing missing files and/or registry data. It's not under your control.

If you mean you triggered a repair by some means other than via ARP e.g. from the command line, how were you doing that?

Since the application shortcuts are advertised ,according the wiondows installer technology it will replace its missing files.

This is not happening in this case.

It will repair files in a feature if the key path is missing. Missing files which are not key paths won't trigger a repair.

Exactly, All the keypaths are in place, then also, its not retriving those files and giving mentioned error.

Sorry...my bad. I should have read your post properly. You're triggering a repair by renaming the folder. Got it...

My guess would be that the SourceList entry in the registry is screwed. ProcMon will help you determine that. Or it may be that the cached MSI in %SystemRoot%\Installer isn't the correct one.

Thanks, But nothing works
Finally I asked WinZip support team for this issue and their reply is
"We do not support repackaging the WinZip install, nor does advertising shortcuts work or have a reason to work with WinZip. "
