hi All,
i have an msi that works fine on an english Wins Server 2003.
if i install it on a german Wins Server 2003 i get the following error in the log.
What exactly does return value 2 mean?
The error msg that appears is
"An error occurred while applying security settings. User is not a valid user or group. This could be a problem with the package, or a problem connecting to a domain controller on the network."

I suspect your package either has entries in the LockPermissions table or uses a Custom Action to set permissions. In either case, they are probably using the English names for, say, the 'Adminstrator' account. Such an account won't exist in German installations ( I don't know what the German translation is). You will have to re-work the package so that it uses what are called "well-known SIDs" instead of the English names. You can find the SIDs for the usual accounts on MSDN.
