I have an application written almost entirely in VB.Net, which runs as a Windows Service. However, for the limited task of UnZipping .zip files, I had a method which used some J# code. This application has a setup probject, and everything worked great with VS 2005.
However, as soon as I upgraded to VS 2008 and .Net 3.5, while the setup project still creates a setup.exe and an .msi file, both of them now fail when I attempt an install. The install begins, but I then get a singularly unhelpful pop-up. This pop-up contains only this: "1:", followed by two buttons, one letting me click Yes, and one letting me click No. That's all I get nothing else. If I click No, the installation process halts and that is that. If I click Yes, an instance of my web browser is invoked, and I am brought to this Web page:
Thinking that J# must be the source of my problems, I re-wrote the method in question with VB.Net code (using the downloaded ICSharpCode.SharpZipLib.dl
l), removed all references to J# from all projects and solutions, removed the J# redistributable from my machine entirely, restarted my computer, and STILL I GET THIS SAME PROBLEM!!.
I have no idea what is causing this, and it is preventing me from creating an .msi to support deployment to a production system.
Can anyone please tell me what is going on here, and what I need to do to fix the problem?
Thank you very much in advance.
