Wise Package Studio 8 + Windows 7 issue

Hello all,

New to the Wise packaging suite and I'm having some issues getting my first repackage completed.

Just trying a simple test repackaging WinZip. I take the snapshot, and install the application and that goes fine. Then, I take the final snapshot and I get a couple of errors when the process goes to copy files.

The error I'm getting is:

"The action can't be completed because the file is open in System

Close the file and try again.

Type: LOG1 File
Size: 117 KB
Date Modified: 3/3/2010 4:55 PM"

I get this same message for the files UsrClass.dat and ntuser.dat.LOG1 as well.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re-packaging WinZip may not be a good idea, since version after v10 are supplied in MSI format already, albeit hidden inside an executable.

Secondly, you need to set up your WPS clients' exclusion list: the file you have captured has no place in a package, as it's part of the user's user profile detrius.

OK, thanks for the tip on the exclusions list.

I had tried with a simpler app as well and I was getting the same errors.

I should have elaborated and said to ensure that you used the Global exclusion list, rather than the local one, since the latter will be replaced when you revert your VM/VPC/VBox to the pre-installation snapshot, ready for the next package.

This web link is no more accessable, and I really want to know more WISE Package Studio 8.0 on Windows 7 (32/64 bit) platform issues sovled. Currently I have one big concern, when using setup capture, I received lots garbages on the files and registries, and so I really want a good file/registry exclusive list on the WISE 8.0 setup.

Anyone can help?? Thanks
