VB6 Setup Kit

A simple EXE packaged with the Package and Deployment Wizard refuses to install on one particular machine.

Having completed the bootstrap SETUP1 complains that it cannot find ST6UNST.exe in the TEMP directory. A manual check shows the directory has been created but the file has not been copied.

If we copy the file manually before starting SETUP returns the "Some components are out of date..." message and reboots the machine. After the restart the problem starts all over again.

Any ideas.

Do you have a line like "Del c:\temp\*.*" in your bootstrap (autoexec.bat, startup, login script, ...)? If so, pull it out.

Have you installed SP3?

For Out-of-date components, thss link can help:

You could also try to install VB run-times prior to your own setup:

Check the cab files whether ST6UNST.exe exists in them. If not, re-run the VB6 packager from square-one and specifically check if that file is marked when installer wizard shows a list of files to be pakaged.

For emoreau.

Thanks for the article links. This is a known Setup problem that was supposed to be fixed with the latest VB service pack. Microsoft are looking in to it...

If you want the points post me a confirmation answer. They're yours for the taking.
