I get an error when I try deploying an application package created with the VB6 P & D wizard. The setup runs thru the bootstrap section of the setup.lst file ok. Then generates an error on the first line of the SETUP1 FILES section:

Invalid line in setup information file
Section: Setup1 Files
@vb6Project1.exe,$(AppPath),,,1.17.99 3:26:06 PM,16384,1.0.0.0

As I'm migrating most apps to VB6 this is rather annoying! Can anyone help?

Hi Mirkwood,

Thanks for the comment. It was all there and just too obvious! If you want the points I'll leave the question unanswered for a while.

Package and Deployment Wizard: Bad Date and Time Formats

     In certain situations, the Package and Deployment Wizard will incorrectly write time and date information to the Setup.lst file. When this occurs, the setup will fail
     because the dates will be written in a form that the setup.exe can't read. The problem occurs when you create a deployment package using the US version of Visual
     Basic on:

          A computer using the German version of Windows (NOTE: the German version of Visual Basic will work correctly.)
          Any computer where the date separator isn't either a forward slash ("/") or a dash ("-").

My problem was that on my PC the date separator in the international settings was "."
