Software Deployment Question

adding missing .dll to the Transform

04/04/2008 3575 views
I am getting a 1309 error: gwenv1.dll does not exit in the system32 folder. I tried added this .dll to the transform file through the Installshield Editor but I am having no luck doing that. Do anyone on the forum ever encounter this problem? How can I added this file? It is a groupwise.msi I am trying to build the transform from. The gwenv1.dll is also a Key file.

I assume you get the 1309 error when you try to install groupwise.msi without any transforms, is this correct? Is groupwise.msi a file that you created with a snapshot or is it provided by the vendor?

Try logging the install and search for the error in the log file for hints about the cause.

I think you can create a log by adding /L*VX LOG.TXT to the msiexec command line.

I rebuilt the transform and set the attributes in Direct editor from 8192 to 16384. Now I am getting error 2920: Source directory not specified for the file gwenv1.dll.

Where and How can I specify the source directory for this file? Do I have to rebuilt the transform again? which is not a problem...just good practice..

I rebuilt the transform and set the attributes in Direct editor from 8192 to 16384.
Why? Open the MSI.CHM file which your authoring tool will have installed and look up 'File Table' for details on file attributes.

Attribute 8192 means that the file is uncompressed (i.e. not in an internal or external CAB file) so the error 1309 error is telling you that wherever the Windows Installer thinks is the source for the files doesn't contain that file in a 'System32' folder. That folder will *normally* be in a correctly-formed path beneath where the MSI is. For example, let's say the MSI is hotsed on R:\APPS\[ProductName]. In that case, WI would expect to see R:\APPS\[ProductName]\Windows\System32.

Thanks VBScab,
I specified the folder and copied all pertinent files/folders to the source directory. Now the transform works..

Again thanks for all your help.
