Patch Design problem
Posted 09 June 2010 - 21:10
When I provide a MSI for the "Latest" version I get a "Windows Installer Error 2209...MsiViewModify()" error message box.
The "latest" msi installs without issue.
Any ideas what is causing this error when I'm trying to load in the msi for a patch?

Did you perform patch und update validation?

I get the error immediately after clicking OK when browsing for the MSI in the UI.
If I use an install with a compressed cab it will extract the install to a location and then pop up the error.
I think the error only occurs when I include a specific component. That component contains some sample files which are picked up dynamically. However, that component has not changed since the original. When I load in the original msi for the "Previous" install I do not get any errors.

It looks like the error dialog only shows up when I load the msi for "Latest".
When I load my original msi or even my new updated msi into "Previous" I do not see an error message.

I have little experience with patching in Installshield, but the first thing I do when creating a patch in other tools is to make sure I perform an admin install of both or all setups, and then try that they upgrade correctly in their normal form. Only then do I proceed to try and create a proper patch.
