View Full Version : error 259 in admin mode - any ideas?

12-16-2003, 01:24 PM
I'm trying to use "msiexec /a" with my install image but the setup is always interrupted. I've included a snip of the log below.

From another thread, the "can not find InstallDriver" error isn't really an error, so my problem seems to lie with error 259. I can't find any help on this error or on setup.inx. If anyone can help me, I'd much appreciate it.
