While installing our product, I got this message box

unhandled Exception
error number: 0x80040706
Description: Object Reference not set

I searched on this error and I found out that it was a documented bug in IS which has been fixed in 6.1

I am using IS 6.2. This error occurred just once, and I am not able to reproduce it.
Even with this error message on the screen, I could complete the installation of my product.

It would be great if someone could explain why it occured just once, and what steps should I take in my scripts to avoid this message showing up suddenly later on.

I am using a Win2K server with SP4

Thanks in advance,

Dear All,

I had identified the error.

I try to get a variable from Setup.ilg file at uninsallation time.

It was not there in the file.

So the exception occurs.

It can be avoided by using try catch mechanism.
