Guys,
Has anyone experienced difficulties using PDW after the SP5 upgrade. The problem I am having is that the CAB file, Setup.exe & setup.lst file are no longer being compiled. Also the Support folder is empty.

I also installed the MSI Development Suite - not too sure if this caused part of the problem.

Any ideas???

Hi!

Yeps, there are problems. It tries to look the MAKECAB.EXE As the VS shuld been installed on C:\

Try to edit path in the .bat file (in the support folder)

Better debug it whit FileMon tool from http://www.sysinternals.com

Then you will better understand the type of the problem.

Hi Matti,

The Support Folder is empty, nothing zilch. But I'll have a look at the File Mon Utility.

I'll get back to you.

Matti,

Wow... What am I supposed to be looking at? I filtered the Capture to show the folder where the application should be packaged to but 1000's of results appeared.

Where would I start to debug this.

Is there not an easier method?

Hi!

Sorry, currently loaded on too much work, berhaps emonreau have a better and faster solution in here, if there is kb for it.

The Filenomitor tools shuld info "Notfound" when a system call to load file and it fails comes.
 
Noted that i have one VS macine what does not build setups after the SP5, but do have much more macines, so this is not a priority sorry Garren, next day i can know more.

I just create a new package on my computer (with SP5) and everything is OK.

Do you have plenty of isk space?

Do you package on C: ?

Hi Emoreau,

loads of space. I have been talking to Microsoft Critical Support all day & no joy.

I even removed all references to visual studio on the machine, registry entries... the lot.

I reinstalled VS again, installed the service pack 5 and bang... nothing when I run the PDW again.

Yep, I package on C:

For the hell of it I installed VS & SP5 on a new PC today & I got an error message "Unexpected Error 28. Out of Stack Space"

Tons of disk space on that machine too.

I'm lost for an answer (and in big trouble!!)

OK,

Here is the answer.

When compiling a project with the Crystl32.ocx attached.

The Crystl.dep file has a circular reference in it.

On earlier versions of VB this showed up as an "Out of stack space" Error Message.

On this version (VS6 + SP5) Nothing compiles.

The fix is to replace all the code in the ".DEP" file with this.




; ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
; Dependency file for setup wizards.


[Version]
Version=8.0.0.4


; ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
; Dependencies for CRYSTL32.OCX


[CRYSTL32.OCX]
Dest=$(WinSysPath)
Register=$(DLLSelfRegister)
Version=8.0.0.4
Uses1=CRPE32.DLL
Uses2=COMCAT.DLL
Uses3=OLEPRO32.DLL
Uses4=

[CRPE32.DLL]
Dest=$(WinSysPath)
;Uses1=CRPE32.DLL
Uses1=
Uses2=

[COMCAT.DLL]
Dest=$(WinSysPathSysFile)
Register=$(DLLSelfRegister)
Uses1=


[OLEPRO32.DLL]
Dest=$(WinSysPath)
Uses1=





I'll leave this question open for a while so others might get some benefit from it, then I'll delete it.

Thanks for the response chaps,
