I'm trying to build a setup project that uses the boostrapper sample on MS's web site to do a silent install of .NET Framework (so I don't have to bug users to install it and explain why). Anyway, I followed all the instructions in MSDN on how to use the sample. The sample has worked in the past, but now, when I run my setup program on a test machine (which happens to run Windows ME), it installs the Framework without a problem, but then before it installs my program (MSI), I get the error message
CreateProcess failed for the following command line: Msiexec /i POSetup.MSI Reboot=Really Suppress
Does anyone know what could be causing this?
Incidentally, after this happened I figured, ok, at least the Framework installed, let me at least try my install. I included the MDAC 2.6 Merge Module that I found linked on this site, one that was developed by another user. That Merge Module never installed, even though my program did. Am I doing something wrong? It was in the MDAC26SP1.zip that I foundin the "Merge Modules" section of this website.
Can it only be used with InstallShield or Wise? I certainly don't have the money to, nor should I have to, pay $1200 to buy an install builder just to include Framework and MDAC, two things that MS should have had the foresight to build in to their Setup Projects.
I know this was a long post, but anyone have any ideas about that error message? Could it just be a Windows ME bug? I don't want to have to say "Windows ME users can't use my app"
Thanks in advance!
