error during installation [can not register a certain file]
Posted on 2003-10-22
I use VB 6.0 and the supplied installation wizzard.
To run the programme correctly it also uses references to certain dll's
On 95% of computers and OS all the installation goes well without any error message.
From time to time I get the user feedback that the following error message occurs during installation:
"An error occured while registering the file c:\winnt\system32\HTFSIFcl.dll "
If the user presses retry the same error happes again, when he presses ignore than the installation continues succesfully.
This happens on NT but also on WIN98 systems.
Is there any reason it does not register certain files, is it because they are already registered??
