Further to a question I posted below I am working on a MSI package for Oracle 8. It compiles fine and seems to test ok but upon the first production test install it stalls with 1 second left of the installation. When I check the log file for the install it is stalling at the "InstallFinalize" step and goes no further. Everything else passes the steps and a return value of 1 meaning it completed but not for "InstallFinalize."

Does anyone have any suggestions or thoughts on what is occuring during the "InstallFinalize" step of the install process or how I can try to get it to proceed?

After exiting the install and running the installation a second time on the same machine it does not stall, passes a 1 for "InstallFinalize" completed ok, and finishes just fine!

For those that run into this problem in particular or a problem trying to install Oracle v8 after packaing it I found the solution that worked in our environment. The solution was to upgrade from Windows Installer v3.0 to v3.1! I wouldn't have though that it would have made a difference but it did. Nothing else I did made any impact on it stalling during the "InstallFinalize" step and I tested for about 4-5 days, but when I upgraded to v3.1 it breezes through the install just fine.

Well... after additional testing and much additional work I found that my initial answer to why the Oracle v8 package was stalling was not because of Installer v3.1 needing to be installed. It turned out that for some reason that the install was stalling on the installation of the ODBC drivers and would not proceed when they were trying to register and setup. My solution was to capture the reg settings for the ODBC drivers and install them via the package instead of via the ODBC setup function within Wise. This did the trick and now the drivers are setup properly, the package no longer stalls, and Oracle v8 works just fine.
