Intermittent 7141 error during build in VS 2013

Getting the following during build of solution. Build will complete once. Have to re-start Visual Studio to get past it (only to run into again when more than one build is attempted), and sometimes that doesn't even work.

Error 5 -7141: An unexpected error occurred embedding file C:\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield\2013LE\Support\SetupExe.Invoker.manifest into C:\Source\\Express\DVD-5\DiskImages\DISK1\setup.exe


Also getting warnings:
Warning 2 -7235: InstallShield could not create the software identification tag because the Tag Creator ID setting in the General Information view is empty. ISEXP : warning : -7235: InstallShield could not create the software identification tag because the Tag Creator ID setting in the General Information view is empty.

Warning 4 -6248: Could not find dependent file libc.dll, or one of its dependencies of component StreamingServerConfigurator.Primary_output ISEXP : warning : -6248: Could not find dependent file libc.dll, or one of its dependencies of component StreamingServerConfigurator.Primary_output

Re: Intermittent 7141 error during build in VS 2013

Hi,

For error 7141:

Please clean up your registry, by using any system registry clean-up tool.

Also, take sometime to have a look at the below post, this error might occur if you have used any special characters in the project name:

https://community.flexerasoftware.com/showthread.php?191078-Error-code-7141-An-Unexpected-error-occu...

To avoid warning 7235 from occuring:

General Information -> Software Identification Tag -> Use Software Identification Tag -> No

To avoid warning 6248:

Select the files in Files and Folders view -> Right-click project Primary Output -> Select Dependencies from scan at Build -> Manually add the dependencies (indicated by a red icon) -> check/un-check as per your requirement.

You might want to have a look at the below article on warning 6248:

Hope this helps.

Thanks,
Chaitra

ISEXP : warning : -6248: Could not find dependent file libc.dll

I cleared the checkbox and it worked - this has been bugging the team for months! I didn't notice this option before and all previous searches (Google and Flexera KB) proved fruitless. I'll read the link to see if I can actually understand WHY setup tries to resolve this dependency, which is a C++ static lib for the C runtime library (CRT). Furthermore this is now deprecated in favour of libcmt.dll, the multi-threaded version. See https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/abx4dbyh.aspx
