Vb setup installation problem

Hi,

I have problem while installing setup created throurgh vb6 OS is XP. When i try to install the setup in win2k it says the following error and i went to the microsoft site and they gave me some instruction and i followed the same but after that too it did not work and gave me the same error message.

Can you help me out to fix this problem.

Setup cannot continue because some system files are out of date on your system. Click OK if you would like setup to update these files for you now. You will need to restart Windows before you can run setup again. Click cancel to exit setup without updating system files.

Thanks,

Chandru

Hey! Chandru,

While installing the application the setup checks if the system has all the files (like runtimes and libraries) and that they are upto date, if some are missing or are out of date it offers to updates these files to the newer version. so thats the message you are seeing, go ahead and ask the setup to update these files. Onece these files have been updated by the setup and the system restarts, the installation should proceed normally.

Personally I prefer innosetup over VB's packaging and deployment. use VB's packaging and deploying to find out the dependencies and then innosetup(freeware u can download from downloads.com) to make the insatallable. the UI is better besides gives you more control.

man the problem is that the system you r running setup on doesnt have some required dlls that you have on the system that created the setup package. do u have the same office and internet explorer on both computers ?
and also u should have sufficient rights on the client pc to be able to install the package.

Had a similar pb when installing VB6 programs. As I am using ADO the pb was quickly isolated. Just installed MDAC 2.6 or above and the whole thing worked.

PD will first register all the dlls mentioned under [BootStrap Files] section in the setup.lst file. You need to find out which one of those dll is causing problem.

My link points to Microsoft article which describes this problem.
I think other experts have something to say as well.
