Error 136

Error 136

Summary

Error 136: Could not copy file 'C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\My InstallShield Professional Projects\My Setup Project\Script Files\setup.inx' to ' ± .' "The system cannot find the file specified."

Symptoms

When attempting to build an InstallShield project, you might receive the following build error:
Error 136: Could not copy file 'C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\My InstallShield Professional Projects\My Setup Project\Script Files\setup.inx' to ' ± .' "The system cannot find the file specified."

Cause

This build error occurs if the setup.inx file is missing from the Script Files directory, and the Build Setting option to "Compile before build" is deselected. If this option was selected, the compile would recreate the setup.inx in the Script Files folder, and the build would not give the error.


Resolution

To avoid the build error, either compile the script before building or turn on the ?Compile before build? setting by following these steps:

  1. Select Build > Settings.
  2. Select the Compile/Link tab.
  3. Select "Compile before build" and click OK.
