    [RESOLVED] Problem with Package and Deployment File

    Below is the beginning of the contents of the Setup.Lst File, which is generated when you invoke the Package and Deployment wizard. You will notice a line which says "TmpDir=msftqws.pdw".
    I have checked all previous Pkg Files I have created over the years, and sure enough, they all contain that line "TmpDir=msftqws.pdw".

    My problem has arisen after I created a new Install file, which goes through its processes when installing my package, BUT, at the end of the installation process, I get a message which says

    "Cannot Register msftqws.pdw. File cannot be found - Aborting installation and removing installation files."

    As we know, this is not a file that gets registered (it is the TmpDir).

    Any ideas what has happened here please ?
    (The only place that msftqws.pdw is mentioned is at the top of the Setup.Lst file




    Code:
    [Bootstrap]
    SetupTitle=Install
    SetupText=Copying Files, please stand by.
    CabFile=ITMSuite.CAB
    Spawn=Setup1.exe
    Uninstal=st6unst.exe
    TmpDir=msftqws.pdw
    Cabs=1

    I have found the answer - It is related to the MSCAL.OCX BELIEVE IT OR NOT !!!

    I have corrected the line in Setup1 Files for MSCAL.OCX

    Code:
    File7=@MSCAL.OCX,$(WinSysPath),$(DLLSelfRegister),$(Shared),7/15/03 2:14:00 AM,125496,11.0.5510.0
    Previously, it said

    Code:
    File7=@MSCAL.OCX,$(WinSysPath),$(DLLSelfRegisterEX),$(Shared),7/15/03 2:14:00 AM,125496,11.0.5510.0
    
    $(DLLSelfRegisterEX)
    This is apparently a bug in the Pkg and Deployment wizard, only if you use the calendar control

    Thanks
    George
