Detection Error - Always reinstalls - tmp.edb

Detection Error - Always reinstalls - tmp.edb

Detection Error - Always reinstalls - tmp.edb

This package works fine on Windows 2000 system (which it was built for) but on XP systems it constantly tries to reinstall, and the Event log shows error 1004, that "the resource 'C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\Logs\tmp.edb' does not exist.

How can I fix this problem, especially since the package is ACTIVE ... I can't risk destroying it.


RE: Detection Error - Always reinstalls - tmp.edb

Hi Ljg

Two things

1. If this app keeps repairing itself on the XP desktop,  
   couldn't you update your msi with a copy of this file?

2. if this file is listed in your components view,    
   couldn't you delete the keyfile which disables the self
   repair feature?

   Hope this helps!
