Re: Error message: DLL required for this install...

Hi there. To some extent, I agree with you regarding part of the equation being the build tool. I'm not disputing that. However, I need a workaround - since it seems that only the miabuild tool has the issue with running in 64-bit mode. Not only that, running it from a 32-bit batch script doesn't he...

Re: Error message: DLL required for this install...

The environment variable was my initial thought too. That's why I changed our build process to run under my credentials. That didn't fix the issue. I put in some extra logging, logging the environment when the build is run; I then compared that to running when I'm logged in. I did notice a differenc...

Re: Error message: DLL required for this install...

Alright, so I've had some more time to work on this.At this point, there seems to be a difference between installs created with the InstallAware GUI, the miabuild.exe command line tool, and if the build is run during a turn log-on session. I tried a dummy project, which just puts some text files in ...

Re: Error message: DLL required for this install...

Wow - ok. You can chose not to believe me if you like.... I agree, what I'm experiencing is a side effect of the problem. Regardless, I can't install a package built by InstallAware from a project that worked one day, and doesn't the next. That's with NO changes to the project definition. I'm report...

Re: Error message: DLL required for this install...

The problem doesn't occur on the build server, it occurs on install packages *created* on the build server. The error isn't seen until one attempts to install the package. The install package created on the build server is within 100K of size of the one created on the development environment. The de...

Re: Error message: DLL required for this install...

I checked the MSI code, and we do not use the "Call DLL Function". The only thing the installer does is put files into a directory tree, and it will call SC.exe to uninstall and install a service. But that's all - it isn't overly complicated. Additionally, it doesn't install any runtimes v...

WiX Export of MSICode - Supported?

Currently evaluating InstallAware 18, but I'm a little confused as to the capabilties for automation. Is there WiX export capabilities of the MSICode? What happened to the WIXAware product? Essentially I'm curious what my options are. I have multiple platform build servers for different products, an...
