Source files for install

Hi - I recently had an application server move to a new server.  It appears all the previous installs from the old server are looking to repair off of the old server name.  Please confirm if there is a reg file that needs to be updated.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

There are subkeys named as GUIDS, like "{362C838B-54FF-4197-847B-8927FF1742EE}"

On the right there is an InstallSource value.... Might want to change that....

Secondly....

Might want to look under here for old servernames.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\UserData

This has caused me headaches in teh past, in the same scenario.....

Hi - Thank you for your response... I made the update within both reg keys and get the same result.  There must be another setting somewhere.

Have you tested on a machine without modifying the other 2 reg keys first? Might have only been part of the fix.....
