Problems with Visual Studios Package and Deployment Wizard
Posted on 2002-04-11
I originally had this problem with Win2k but now I am encountering this problem when I am installing a VB6/Access2k App on a windows 98 2nd Ed workstation using Visual Studios Package and Deployment Wizard. For some of the files, I am receiving a msgbox stating: "Setup cannot continue b/c some system files are out of date on your system." It then tells me to click Ok to update the files and restart windows again. When I do this I receive the same msgbox on the same files.
Some of the workstations work after I reboot the machine the 3rd or 4th time, but this is unacceptable. MS article Q191096 was helpful but there are still problems even when I try all there recommendations. Does anybody recommend any third party solution like Install Shield or Wise or am I missing something in the installation? I am using VS6 SP5 and win2k. Thanks in advance.
