View Full Version : Problem converting Repackager output files

09-05-2002, 05:11 AM
I installed ISAS 3.5 as a Domain admin. Everything works fine with this user account.

Then I logged in as my normal user account which is a Windows XP Power User.

I tried to repackage “Adobe Acrobat 5.0.5”. The repackaging itself worked great, I got a Repackager output file. Now I'd like to convert this output file to a MSI file. I started "Legacy Setup Conversion Wizard" entered the location to the *.inc and so on. The last Button in the Wizard is "Convert". I pressed "Convert” and the following message occurred:

Converting: P:\BMS Software\EN\Acrobat Reader 5.0.5\Package\Acrobat Reader.inc to: P:\BMS Software\EN\Acrobat Reader 5.0.5\Package\Acrobat Reader-1.ism
Starting conversion
Creating project file
*** Error: InstallShield Developer must be installed to convert .inc project files.

When I try the same steps with the domain admin account everything is OK und the file is converted. I tried this also on another installation and even there is the same problem.

What is wrong? What can I do?

I don't really answer you question but I think you should be able to convert it to a MSI file by opening it with the authoring too.

I already tried to convert the file to MSI with the author, but even there the error pops up.
