Does anyone know about this error " Add user error -- Could not add user " test" . test is an illegal user name , or the user directory could not be created. Test is the user name trying to create.. just for the test purpose... Application compile fine no error.. Any suggestion...

Things i have done so far
As long as those keys are under HKCU a per-machine installations of the package will be very complicated and will not work on every system.

Capture the installation (installed “ISScript.msi” before the capturing) and open the .WSI – file in the Wise Installer Editor.

Mark the HKCU – root of the Snapshot on the “Registry – Page” and export it to a .REG – File.

Open the .REG – File with “Notepad”. Replace the string “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\” with “HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\”, so all Classes are where they belong.

Replace the string “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\” -> vendor with “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\”, so that the application config is available to “All Users”.

After you’ve done that, delete the “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\” – Folder in the captured installation and import the customized .REG – File.

Wise should tell you that it found advertising information in the .REG – File. You can decide whether Wise shall write this information in the corresponding Tables (Class, AppID …).

I might remember wrong, but I think that the setup.exe for Palm Desktop did unzip a MSI-file into the %temp%-dir.
Maybe that file will help you?
