InstallScript MSI project
Posted 09 July 2012 - 10:56
Im new to installshield and i have very little idea about working with installscript. I have an installscript MSI project and i get the following errors when i build the project.
1.)There were errors compiling installscript ( ERROR CODE-4370)
2.)An error occured streaming ISSetup.dll support file D:\TAW Installshield\WorkSpace\Master\Master\Script Files\Setup.inx(ERROR CODE - 7132)
Could the cause of these errors be some missing files or is it due the scripts?? i have no idea how to work with scripts...please help me out.

2) This is a consequence of 1). setup.inx is the compiled script. If the script couldn't be compiled, there's no setp.inx, and therefore it can't be built into the package.

There was some error in the script itself, but that got sorted out. And the function was GetCurrentDirectory.... you were right, the setup.inx wasn't built. Thank you
Could you suggest me a good tutorial for installShield?because I'm new to it and the project I'm working on is quite advanced, also i was thinking of making the sample projects myself so i could get some insight into installshield bt i can't find a tutorial for all the included projects, could you help me with that?

You could also try the book "Getting Started with InstallShield Developer and Windows Installer Setups". It's quite old, and the "InstallScript MSI" project type was called "Standard project" back then.

Thanks for the link though,even though the book is old i bet it would be informative for me. Could you tell me how can i start with the installscript language??
