AdminInst and incremental Patch
Posted 15 November 2005 - 15:55
I've created a patch:
- with ISWI 1.5 ( I don't think that this is the problem )
- with major as with minor upgrade
- and patch/incremental
I started the patch on MSI 3.1 as on MSI 2.0 with
msiexec /p xxx.msp /a xxx.msi
and got during runtime an error 1336
"There was an error creating a temporary file that is needed to complete this installation. Folder: . System error code: "
I detected, that this problem only occured on network drives.
On a local drive, this error didn't occure.
But in most cases, admin installations are on network drives.
After some successles tries, I found out, that the "incremental" is the problem.
I created the patch with "use entire file" ( with the respective result ) and no error occured at runtime.
Does someone has the same problem?
Does a new MsiMsp.exe solve this problem?
Thanks in advance!

maybe the network drive doesn't allow modification inside the file (virus protection?)
If I'm right, the MSI file will be changed ( in the case of entire files ) and that works on this drive.
or it doesn't have room (or you don't have the permissions) to create a temporary copy of the file
That's our temp drive ( mapped to X:) (100 GB free space) ( permissions: create, modify, delete folders and files, in the root directory too) and the patch with entire files needs more temporary diskspace.
The message points to the correct folder and the error code is 1336.

Note that this part of the install may be ruinning in the System account.

Do you mean the ruining in conjuction with this error?
Or is the admininst patch itself the problem?
What will be damaged in the System account?

but the problem remains:
What's different between a patch with incremental files or with entire files?
( both patches are Administrativ Patches)

What's the problem with major upgrade patches?
Where's the problem?
Which problems occure?

It's not only the incremental patch.
It's the patch with entire files too.
All CAs that will be run at uninstallation will be started from the previous MSI file.
Can't the WindowsInstaller save the MSI file in the Installer directory itself.
