I have created a setup installation of a package developed in vb5.0 using Application Setup Wizard. When i try to install the package using this set of setup floppies i get the follwiing error.

Line is Setup.lst is Invalid,
(It also displace a particular line from the setup.lst file)

i get this problem in only one machine and the same set of floppies work fine in other machines.

The machine i am using is A Pentium 120 with Win 95 os.

Can any one tell me what could be wrong.

Are you using Service Pack 2 or 3?  Sounds like the floppy drive may have some problems, or there is a file in use and setup cannot do its update as needed.

Check these things out.

if there is some problem with my floppy drive then it should have showed the error right in the first floppy. But i get the error only in my second floppy.

guys, i don't think i have any hardware problem or media problem

I made an installation package couple months ago with VB5 SP3 and the program cant run in that machine. The machine's Win95  was eventually replaced by 95 OSR2 and the program got running ever since then ... !!!! Till now I still cannot figure out what differences are between OSR1 & OSR2  ......

Hi all. I hope I think I am reading this one right.
Firstly, make sure that all the correct files that you use (OCX's, 3rd party stuff etc. are included into you setup wizards list.) Then make sure you have the right to distribute any other 3rd party stuff (sometimes cause errors).
now, instead of compiling the installation set to stiffy, try compiling the installation set to to hard drive in the correct folders so that it can be copied to stiffy later (ie. disk1, disk2, disk3 etc...)
If your hard drive install works, then OK. If not, then your setup wizard has been corrupted or something.
Have fun.
