The error goes as follows: "Unable to save the Windows Installer File \\oslfp2\wts$\Wise Share Point\Projects\ICA web client\WSI10E.tmp. Check for enough disk space." It shows up in the "task list" in windows installer editor.

The logged in user has full access to the folder, both on ntfs and share levels. The disk has 300 gb of free space.
- Successfully created a file on the '...\ICA web client' folder manually, in an attempt to troubleshoot.
- Attempted to restart WPS and the computer it resides on, still no success.
- Clicked the check box on the task and attempted Compile, same error still shows up. [:(]

Anyone got a suggestion what to do?

kryzalid,

Have you tried to compile a project on the local machine, not on to a network share as part of your troubleshooting?

Have you attemped to map a drive to the share and compile to the mapped drive?

Just some pointers that may help you root out the issue.

Thanks,

kryzalid,

you piggy-backed your question on the back on a posting over 3 years old.

The error goes as follows: "Unable to save the Windows Installer File \\oslfp2\wts$\Wise Share Point\Projects\ICA web client\WSI10E.tmp. Check for enough disk space." It shows up in the "task list" in windows installer editor.


The error message shows that a file is attempting to be saved to a UNC path - hence the suggestion to map a drive to the UNC path.

If this is not your specific issue, then a new posting might have been in order - referring back to this posting, if it is relevant.

You don't mention whether this occurs for all projects that are being compiled, or a specific package you are having problems with.

If you could provide further information as the to exact nature of the problem, then the board maybe able to assist you further.

Thanks,

We routinely got this at a client's site and simply stopped using the remote compile option. We had our knuckles rapped about that (network bods whining about traffic, etc) but we simply asked which option was preferrable: some increase in network traffic or no app distribution...

This being quite some time ago, I just cant remember what we did to resolve this. I'm still compiling to the same UNC-path. I'm guessing the error was related to one particular package.

I opened a case with Wise today on this topic and spoke with Beverly (if you know her, she is one of their best!). The problem I had that caused this error was a custom action. The name of the custom action was too long. There is a 72 character limit (path included) of the .exe I called. I shortened the name of the custom action way down, and it compiled perfectly. It was that simple. Go to Setup Editor, Tables Tab. Click on Custom Action. Right click on the tab lable (Action) and select Column Info. Check out the string name (mine was over the 64 character limit with the path appended to the beginning which doesn't actually show here, but would if you added the path yourself).
