Hi

We recently migrated our old Windows SBS 2003 server onto a new SBS 2011 server. But when I try to install a program on the new server I get an error that is looking for a My Documents folder on the old server (I have attached a screen shot).

I would appreciate any advice on this.

Thanks

Scott

I guess you need to change the installation location to new server location in the .msi file. You can use the MSI Package builder to edit the .msi file.

Is this the MSI Package builder for the actual software I am trying to install?

Also, as its pointing to an old location, I would have thought this might be in the registry but I can't find it anywhere.

Do you remember you used the same file to install Radmin on your old server earlier?

Or try to download the software again from the company you purchased from earlier and use it to install it on new server.

Yes I tried the old file but its not compatible with the 64bit new server. I have also tried the latest file off the company site and I still have the same problem.

Does the same folder (with the exception of the server name) exist on the new server?
was the old server properly and fully decommissioned and removed.
try adding a cname pointing the old server name to the new server ip.
