Wise for windows installer 4.2

Wise for windows installer 4.2

Wise for windows installer 4.2


I just installed an application made using WFWI. However when the user starts to use this application the following message comes up:
The feaure you are trying to use is on a cd rom or other removable disk which is not available......

There is no option to install this application as "Run from CDROM" in the installer.

Why this is happening?


RE: Wise for windows installer 4.2


Look in the Media section of the Installation Expert.  You have probably compiled it as external uncompressed files  or external cabs.  If the cab/files aren't available in the same location that the MSI is executed from then you will receive this message.


-Focus on the solution to the problem, not the obstacles in the way.-

RE: Wise for windows installer 4.2

I have not gone to Media section. But in the media section the media name is "Basic", compression type is "Cabs inside" and Cab option is "Quick"

I would also check the components table in the tables tab of setup editor. See if any of your component's attributes are set to 1, and if so, try changing them to 0 or 2, or 4 for HKCU entries. 1 tells it to install the component from the source while 0 specifically installs local, while 2 checks for either. Cheers and good luck!
