Hello Folks,
I have an application for which I am creating an active setup (as it has per user reg keys). The issue is when it actually runs the active setup it is not looking in " C:\WINDOWS\Installer\xxx.msi" instead it is looking for the original source location.
i did check the log it has a property called (created by the msi)

original database as C:\WINDOWS\Installer\xxx.msi then it again checks for the orginal SourceDir(created by the msi).
i was wondering if anyone ever faced this issue or know how to trick it please do let me know.

Hi Ram,
that's a common issue. Most likely, it comes from files with incorrect version info or a missing entry in the MsiFileHash table.
Log the installation and search, on which file it screams for the original MSI file. This will be one of the ones you have to check for the above things.
And please read this post from John McFadyen carefully:
