Basic MSI Project: Error Code:132

Basic MSI Project: Error Code:132

Summary:
Internal error in the file DataTargetFile.cpp,line:86: "Cannot create a file when that file already exists."

Synopsis:
This article will show you how to resolve the Error Code:132.

Discussion:

Generally, this error occurs while InstallShield is moving temporary files generated from the build to the respective files, such as the .hdr file and .cab files in the DISK1 folder.

Deleting a file on the machine may fail due to one or more of the following reasons:

  1. The user is not an Administrator.
  2. The user does not have write access to the target path(Network Location etc).
  3. Antivirus software or security-related software or both is interfering with the file deletion process.

Here are some possible, corresponding resolutions:

  1. Make sure to build as an Administrator.
  2. Make sure that the current user has write access to the target path(Network Location etc).
  3. As a test, temporarily disable antivirus software and security-related software to see if the issue still occurs. If the issue no longer occurs, re-enable the antivirus software and security-related software and add an exclusion / exception for the InstallShield build output folder so that the antivirus software and / or security-related software does not interfere with the build process and allows the file deletion process.
