Package & Deployment Problem
Posted on 2003-03-03
Guys,I am facing serious problems with the "Package & Deployment Wizard",in Win 2000 & Win 98 as well.
In Win 98,I am facing a problem while uninstalling a program(which uses ADO) that was created/packaged in VB.
While uninstalling & during the deletion of files stage,the installation process crashes,flashing the dreaded "...performed an Illegal operation..." message.I noticed that the crash occurs only when a certain file is being attempted to be removed.And the file is,MSADO20.TLB.The name appears on the title bar of the window showing the progress bar.
Under Win 2000,the problem is related to the very same file,MSADO20.TLB.While installing the setup program fails to register this file,& flash a message stating the same.After this the setup program abandons the installation process.
I tried reinstalling the program,but the uninstallation process kept crashing.I even re-packaged the installation files,several times,but to no avail.
Besides there're shared files in the package,MSADODC.OCX & MSSTDFMT.DLL.And this means,during uninstallation,the message box prompting the user to Remove or Keep the file must appear.It never does!Why?
On another occasion the Setup crashed immediately,at the "Copying files please wait" stage.Not just once,but repeatdly.
Any similiar experience,guys?
