Install Shield 2009 "Path Variables"

Hello Everybody,

I am new to install shield 2009. Recently I got one install shield project from other location in my organization and when I opened that project on my build machine using install shield, it started giving me errors that "ISDEV : error -1024: File P:\CommonInstallers\InstallScripts\RunReportInstallers.vbs not found. Cannot stream the file into the Binary table"

Although above file was at the same location mentioned, therefore I have a question is there a way Install shield remembers the settings done in "Path Variables" on one machine and if open the same project with similar directory stucture on different machine.

Please let me know.

Thanks
Piyush

For our projects I try to keep everything using relative paths.

LIke my binaries will be stored in
\binaries
or I use this for our common directory which is outside the project folder
\..\common

This way you can use the environment on any machine

Hello Lordmaxx,

Thanks for your response. Your answer clicked what I was unable to figure it out.

Reason, project unable to remember the enviornment is due to the virtual drive it was mapped having a path problem. After I rectified the virtual drive mapping, project remembered its old settings and it worked.

Great !!

Thanks
