XCopy error 0x80070003
Removing all files with those characters does not cause the error to occur. Any help would be appreciated.
We are using InstallShield 2010 with SP1 and hotfix for Windows 2000 install.
Probably would fail with spaces and a few other chars in filespec.
Try putting quotes around the filespec.
Let us Know.
I do not copy files individually
The call to XCopyFile is:
XCopyFile("*.*", "*.*", INCLUDE_SUBDIR)
where the TARGETDIR and SRCDIR were saved via VarSave and restored afterwards via VarRestore
Also, private me your e-mail if you are interested in Beta testing the latest InstallScript.
On a similar note, during an upgrade of our software, we read and write to ini files using GetProfString and WriteProfString
The same string ("ßäµ≈") is changed to ("ßäµ~") during that upgrade process.
What happens is that the string is read from the ini file using GetProfString, a string concatenation happens to add another value (e.g "ßäµ≈, Test") and the concatenated string gets written using WriteProfString but the "ßäµ≈" is changed to "ßäµ~".
I verified that the ≈ is in the character map (0x2248) but the ~ character (0x02dc) is not.
Hey, to fix the error 0x80070003, you need to repair and restore broken system files. This can be done by opening Command Prompt with admin privileges and go for the following commands one after another: SFC /scannow DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth, DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth, DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth . After that, restart your PC and look for the updates once again. This will probably resolve the issue; if it doesn't, you can run the update troubleshooter. To do that, you can disconnect all the peripherals linked to your PC and start your machine again. Now go to Settings and choose the option of Update and Security. Just tap on Troubleshoot and tap on View, an additional troubleshooter. In the end, search and run the Update troubleshooter and check out the updates and you are good to go.
