View Full Version : Component Transfer error with a blank File: in error dialog

08-05-2003, 01:24 PM
This is most disconcerting. I am using IS Pro 6.3 and am suddenly encountering a 'Component Transfer Error' at runtime.

Unfortunately, no filename is provided in the error dialog and after carefully examining the the .cdf file and the component and filegroups involved, I can find nothing to explain the behavior.

I must solve this immediately - does anyone have any ideas?

Building and running on Windows 2000 sp3.

Thanks for any help...

I hate to post my own reply but I finally figured out what was going on.

I believe that the final processing of any component installation is the processing of any shell objects directly associated with that component. In the display text of one of my shortcut definitions I had typed a forward slash '/'. This is bad news, apparently.

Even worse, the error message refers to the component that comes next, and the next component's first file group, and there is no file mentioned because the failure actually occurred 'in between' component processing.
