I have a vendor MSI for IBM DB2 Admin Client 8.2 for which i have created an MST. when i apply this MST to the MSI it installs smoothly but while uninstallation it throws up an error :

"The Installation location of the product is invalid or could not be found"

Can anybody tell me the reason for the error and the resolution too.

Thanks and Regards

Run the install from MSIEXEC with verbose logging (/L*V [Filename]). At the end will be a list of defined properties and their values. Check SOURCEDIR. It should indicate the location of the MSI that was used. If it's incorrect, or it's not available when you uninstall, you will get this error. Check the Properties table and see if SOURCEDIR is defined in the MSI or Transform to something incorrect.

Hi Viking,

Thanks for all the advice but the problem was not about Sourcedir. The problem was due to version i.e. inside the MSI the version is three digits and when i try to change it it throws me up this error during uninstallation. But according to over packaging standards we have to keep our version as four digits.
Can u tell me how to resolve this issue or what could be the root cause of it.

Thanks and Regards
