View Full Version : Internal Error 2705. Directory
12-05-2001, 12:00 AM
I am running into this run-time "Internal Error 2705. Directory". The
InstallShield failed with the message said "1628: Fail to complete
installation". I checked the error code 1628 from msi, which said "Invalid
or unknow table specified". How can I find out the cause of the error?

This means that your directory table is corrupted. This usually happens
when you have a directory entry that references something non existent as
its parent. I think that if your run validation on the MSI package it will
tell you which directory entry is having the problem. You could then use
the direct editor to correct this condition.

we got the same error "2705 Directory" during installer runtime. (No errors on MSI build time!)
After using DirectEditor on the msi, an empty parent dir entry for INSTALLDIR was found.
Then it turned out that in my ISD7 project in "General Information/Product Properties" the INSTALLDIR variable was empty. I swear I did not erase that! It was simply gone.
After entering the correct setting again the 2705 was gone.
