    • Find the file in the WiseSourcePath table and change the attribute to 16. Then find the file in the MsiAssembly table and delete the row. That is an alternate way to do the same thing. It works - kboneill 5 years ago

Cause The attributes in the WiseSourcePath table indicate that the [problem] files are .NET assemblies. Resolution Summary 1. Go to the Setup Editor > Tables > WiseSourcePath table 2. The Attributes column for the [problem] files should currently be 8. Change the attributes column for these three entries to 16 3. Go to the Files page 4. Double-click on each of the [problem] files, go to the Assembly tab and change the Assembly Type to None. 5. Compile the installation. This time when you compile, the Assembly Type should remain None even if the Rescan Com interop registry keys on compile option is selected

I have found a faster way.

Delete the whole table WiseSourcePath, or at least the files with attribute 8.

Then delete the whole table MSIassembly, you don't have to change the files themselves.

  • I just ran into this error when attempting to repackage Aginity Workbench for Netezza (also called something like PureData System for Analytics). Tried running the MSI but got error 2765. Then I found this page and wound up deleting all the rows in the WiseSourcePath table that had an attribute of 8, and deleted the entire MSIassembly table.
    After that the MSI installed correctly without error.
    Glad I found this. Big time saver! - RonW 2 years ago
