Re: Error 1324

thank you for your answer. it did not help unfortunately.
do you have another idea?
other installers that i downloaded work just fine, only my self compiled one fails.

Re: Error 1324

it does not seem to fit my problem because my path in the error message is ".."
i enabled "create msi logs" and after the mentioned error it sais "Error 2707. Target paths not created. No path exists for entry SystemFolder in Directory table."
that does not ring a bell with me though...

Re: Error 1324

Could you share the MSI log so that we could investigate further.

Re: Error 1324

the mentioned error 2707 appears when i check "Show the windows installer log" and finish the installation. so there is no log.

Re: Error 1324

i found another hint: the error only appears when i add source code to the installer. and not just any source code, but from one of my projects. i attached the setup.exe so maybe someone can try to locate the problem?
thanx!!

Re: Error 1324

The issue is related to invalid path associated to INSTALLDIR. Could you kindly provide us the .isl file of your project so that we could investigate further.
