Error occured while parsing installer setup file ..\path\setup.ini
The file could not be located.

IIRC, a relative path will resolve from where the installer executable is running, not from <TARGETDIR>. IF you need to get the file from <TARGETDIR>\path\setup.ini, that's what you should speciify.

The real error is:
Error occured while parsing installer setup file (then the path to the setup.ini file is displayed here in the error message dialog.)
The setup.ini file exists in the location.
I have done an exhaustive internet search to try to find this error message and I cannot find it anywhere.
It could be a windows installer error message. Does anyone know where a windows installer forum is?

Is Windows Installer (MSI) involved in this setup or is it pure InstallScript? The Windows Installer section can be found in the "Windows Installer (MSI)" box at http://forum.installsite.net .
Is X: a subst'ed drive? Windows Installer doesn't work well with subst.
Is X: a network drive? Does the drive mapping exist for the account in which the setup is running (which might by LocalSystem if UAC is enabled)? And does the account have sufficient permissions for that drive/directory? ProcessMonitor from Microsoft SysInternals should tell you any file access issues.
