Setup Prerequisites Install OK but say failed
Posted 21 September 2004 - 14:25
Ive just started a new project which I have added a couple of other msi files to as redistributables, ive included them as setup prerequisites and before my project install begins I have the box pops up and lists them all as pending. I continue the install and the first one installs fine, i recive the install success message from the prerequisite msi file, but as it goes back to the list i recive
"The installation of <PREREQUISTE NAME> appears to have failed. Do you want to continue the the installation"
If I click yes the status of the prerequiste in the list is now failed and the next one begins and the same thing happens again The thing is, nothing is wrong with any of the installs and all programs install exactly as they should so I don't see why the main project keeps reporting that they have failed???
All I can think is there is a return code, which for some reason keeps reporting that the installs have failed, is there anyway of ignoring this as I can't even see a setting for it only for forcing a reboot after the prerequisite has finished installing?
Thanks for any assistance

Thanks for the reply.
I tried setting both the return value as you suggested but with no luck, I also tried setting the values described in InstallShield X help but they didnt work either.
I don't know if it makes any difference but the msi's when installed on there own do not request a reboot?
Any other ideas?

I am having exactly the same problem with my install. I am using InstallShield 10.5. I have a prerequisite file and its log says that it completes successfully, however, I get a pop-up that the installation failed:
"The installation of <PREREQUISITE NAME> appears to have failed. Do you want to continue with the installation"
My prerequisite is quite simple and can be found attached.
How did you resolve the problem?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm curious if you were able to solve this problem, and how?
I am experiencing a similar problem.

For some reason, If the user quits the installation of any prerequisite during installation, it continues with other prerequisites to install. How to make the installaer to quit the whole installation if any of the prerequisite fails.

Is this not what you are seeing?
