Hi

I am trying to run an upgrade service pack on a bespoke piece of software that runs on a Windows platform (2003 web edition to be more precise).

The file is just an executable install wizard file that runs various scripts in windows in order to upgrade the current version of software.  However the install wizard cannot even start whatsoever.  The second that I try to run the file windows produces this error:

Runtime error: (at 154:9483):

" is not a valid integer value.

I've done some googling on this already and it seems to be related to value that the executable is checking for but may have been deleted which causes the error.  I'm just not sure which area to look in order to find this value.

Our software also produces a more in depth log of what occured at the time of trying to run the wizard: ( I have attached the log file and also pasted the text from the file below:

You could try filemonitor and processmonitor from MS.  It will tell you which files/dlls the installer is opening and possibly which registry entries it is looking at.

Haven't been able to resolve the issue yet, but using filemonitor and proc mon is definately a good way of pulling the problem apart.  There is just so much information to sift through.

I think this will be the best idea I'm going to get so here with the limited amount of information that I have supplied, so here you go

Thanks
