MSI Error 2842 No text field was found on the error dialog.

Everytime a user has an error my current MSI Setup only shows error 2842 in a Messagebox and in Log.

All errors only show 2842 while setup. Only in Logfiles i can find the real error cause. (for example 2842 error is shown, in logs it its error 2842 and 1935)

What could be a possibilty for this behavior? I have a filled out string table, i have a translation for my language, i have text file with all strings... In my XML ISM File are all Strings included.

I cant find any other post with this problem on WWW.

First Website i dont trust. They try to phishing you to download a binary.

2nd Website is not about this error. Just same number but different errortype.

Does noone ever had this problem here / on www? I searched 4hours yesterday about this.

Does noone has an idea for this case? I need valid Errors for my customers. They need to call us for every small problem with installation.

Re: MSI Error 2842 No text field was found on the error dialog.

I found a possible solution. Iam not sure yet but:


No Text field was found on the error dialog < says excatly whats problem. There is no "errortext" Textfield in your Errordialog.

My Textfield was called "text".

Fix it and it will work again.

This is first solution for this bug world wide ;) i searched ~2 years for it and finally found it where i was migrating a ISM in our team.
