Hi all

When i am installing the app by applying the transform using command prompt i m getting the "Error2343( ) Specified path is empty"

Can anyone Please Help.

I would recommend you to use the microsoft's ORK instead to create an MST for the MSI

Definitely use the appropriate Office Resource kit, which you can download from Microsoft. You can sit and spin your wheels on this using another tool - I ran into it with InstallShield. You can sometimes edit the transform with Wise or another tool, but this is one instance where the vendor wants you to use their tool.

And be sure to not try to edit this with the XP Office resource kit; make sure you use the 2003 kit. The transform will look right if you use the wrong one, but it just won't take.

I have used the ORK tools but still getting the same problem.

Problem is solved.
I was using WISE Studio 5.1, and i think it has some bugs. Then i used WISE Studio 5.6, its not giving the error 2343.
But It is giving new error. Even though i am providing correct Product key it is flashing an error that the entered key is not correct.
I am using PIDKEY as a property in the property table.

When i commented the script whereever PIDKEY is used then i am able to install the app, but when i launch the app for the first time it is asking for key. The key is alredy written in the boxes. When i click ok it is working.
IS this method of commenting the MSI Script is correct.

Can anyone give me suggestions.
