Database inMSI

12/15/2016 630 views


I am trying to install an vendor MSI, at the end of the install it throws this error below.

There is an exe that I got too , on that install, I manually give a location to connect to an existing database, that's the only difference. But I don't have any public property to add the database to the MSI. If there is one, please can someone tell me or if there is any other way to suppress or add the server details. the msi on install does not give me the normal next next box it finishes the install without the UI except for the last window.

  • Yes I did, When I look into the Log , At InstallShield 14:40:23: Invoking script function CallConfigure
    1: CLD_ConfigureApplication : Creating InstallHelper Object
    1: CLD_ConfigureApplication_Err :
  • 1: CLD_ConfigureApplication_Err : Application Configuration Failed.
    • Humm Im not sure theres much you can do about this, you need to work with the CA to get your MSI to work. Have you tried feeding it variables or paths?

      The only other thing I can think of is that you can try and capture the changes and make that into a MST, then you can disable the CA. Im not sure if this will work as the DB it connects to, might require the client ti register etc.

      An idea anyway, all the best, but I think it will be tricky one.
      • Thanks, I tried to capture just that part too, But I looked just under files or reg to see if it drops anything there. I didn't get anything from it. will check the ca
