Error Creating iss file with v9

Postby Ladewig » Thu Apr 16, 2015 9:50 am

Traditionally we've generated iss files to facilitate deploying EViews silently. With the v9 installers (32 and 64 bit), when we try to do so, we get an error:

"One or more installer files are missing! Unable to proceed with install."

Followed by:

Error Number: 0x80040702, Description: Failed to load DLL: install, Setup will now terminate.

Using procmon, it appears to have an issue loading the install.dll file that is part of the package. Works fine on an interactive install.

Anyone else experiencing this issue?

I presume you are running the installer from a DOS/cmd Window. If so, when starting the DOS/cmd window be sure you 'run as administrator'.

The error occurs whether you run as an admin or not. That was the first thing I verified when I first saw the error.

I was able to create the iss files without issue.

Try disabling any anti-virus software.

Also try redownloading the installers. Although this doesnt explain why it installs fine ineractively.

What is the command you are using to generate the iss file?

I finally figured it out. I was running using "-a -r". Switching to just "-r" worked.
