Two of our users have experienced this error when testing a beta version of one of my companies in house pieces of software.
The error appeared as below:
Internal Error 0x80040707
This appears when the 'Preparing InstallShield Wizard' just about reaches the end. Click OK and the error appears again, but this time without the 'Preparing InstallShield Wizard' display on screen. Click OK and the following error appears when the 'InstallShield Wizard Screen' finally appears.
Component Transfer Error
Both machines are networked and are attached to the same domain, although they exist in different subnets. The installation is compiled in InstallShield 6.12.
Our users have specific policies applied to there machines. One of which is that their 'Custom Programs Folder' points to a location on the network (makes everyone in there department have the same start menu), the N: in our case. If the problematic setup routine is run, and as in our users don't have permissions to write/modify, the setup fails. If the policy is changed to point to the standard 'C:\WINDOWS\PROGRAMS\START MENU' or if they have write/modify permissions it runs without fault. The bizarre thing is that the installation doesn't place any folders/shortcuts in the StartMenu. Does InstallShield still try to access the StartMenu for some reason?
This might explain why someone else on this forum (can't remember his/her name) got the error when they change from a Workgroup to a Domain if they had policies applied.
If any more info is needed, just ask.
