I followed the great advice on the site to repackage the individual components of Adobe Creative Suite (v1). It works great.

If I take these MSIs I have created and try to install them under XP, it doesn't work so great. MSI error codes 1601.

Any ideas what I need to do inside the MSI package to have it work? My impression was that the whole point of MSI was a standards based approach to installation where dependencies and differences are handled at install-time by the Windows Installer service?

Thank you all.

Reference the error here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/msi/setup/windows_installer_error_messages.asp

I'll refrain from mentioning what error 1601 is. [:)]

Thats the wierd thing though - this is a new image on a new machine. Unless any one of the applications in the Adobe Create Suite package takes over 33 GB, I 'aint out of disk space.

Create a log file with MSIEXEC's /L*V "[filename]" switch. It might give you more detailed information.

Hmmm. The 1601 error was obtained via Zenworks, so I just tried to install the MSI manually and I recieved the following error:

"Error 1719. The Windows Installer service could not be accessed"

So, I followed the Microsoft support article here:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;Q315346

And I'm back up and running. Why I needed to re-register the msiexec application I am not sure, but thats all it took.
