  • any error number that you can share with us??
    • No error Code or Number I am getting while building ISM
  • Are u keeping the loose files folder besides the IRP
  • Nooo
  • I have run into this type of error on some packages... In my process, I capture on a VM, then copy the resulting irp files to my main machine for edit/builds. Due to this move, I sometimes have to update the path to the original exe and also the path to where the ISM will be saved. It doesn't happen on every capture but some.

    Sometimes I even have to put the files in the same path as on my VM as well... like you on my VM I use the default c:\packages... but on my edit/build box I place these files in a different locations. Every so often I have to copy to c:\packages to get it to build right.
