Problems with Windows Server 2003
Posted 07 May 2004 - 14:21
The windows installer service is started, I have 2 msiexec.exe which are running on my workstation ( 1 under the user account and the other one under the system account ).
When prompted, I provide the various configuration screens of my installation with the proper parameters, then, I run the installation of .Net Framework version 1.0.3705
The .Net Framework installation is launched by an custom action which temporarily stops my installation and execute the DotNetfx.exe package provided by Microsoft.
.NetFramework got properly installed then my installation restarts, but during the execution of actions in the status window (just before verifyreadydlg) the installation stops and I have the error message :
“Error 2755 : The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2755. The arguments are: 1601 »
I have noticed that the installation of the .NetFramework usually stops the MSI service which is run under with the system account privilege.
This does not happen with others operating systems.
Does anyone have an idea ?
Thanks in advance

I think there is an option in the project settings in Installshield developer (or the release wizard) that says "Install .NET". Enable this, remove the custom action and try again (important to try on a system without your .NET version installed too of course).

I'm going to see how i can do without installshield.
I think that I'm going to separate the .net installation from my installation.
