Please insert disk error
Posted on 2006-11-07
I've been experiencing a "Please insert disk" error when installing a VB app on a Windows 2000 PC .
I've done some research and suggestions included:
Installing VB run-time files on the target PC - I did
The install folder might include spaces - it did, I removed them
Remove some funny folder from the system temp folder - i did every time before attempting another install
Remove all my copied cab files from the windows folder - i did every time before attempting another install
The CAB files should not include spaces in the file names - they don't
I might also mention that on the message box that displays the "Please insert disk" error, there are also a large number of funny symbols - they look similar to ones that you would find when renaming an exe file to txt and opening it up in notepad....
