Error during build

Postby culbertb » Tue Apr 21, 2009 2:41 pm

I'm testing IA and have not been able to create a successful install yet. I get a message to check the log file. The log file is attached. Any help would be apprecaited.

I have looked through the forum and have not seen anything yet.

Did you just try to build a tabula rasa basic setup project and see what happens with it?

Where can I find information on building a "tabula rasa basic setup project" ?

I've done a quick project from the IA admin screen and this wsa from the Visual Basic plug in.

Tabula rasa = clean slate, blank canvas.

What Candice is suggesting is that you consider starting a new project and add the installation elements one at a time to see if you can identify where it breaks. The other angle she might be hinting at is to create a basic project and build it immediately after you've created it. Don't add anything and don't delete anything. That'll prove if an off-the-shelf project is failing as well.

Have you tried debugging the script in your project?
