View Full Version : Error installing patch

05-12-2004, 09:20 AM

I am trying to create patch for a single version using standard project. Patch was generated but trying to install gives Error:1636 This patch package could not be opened. Contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer patch package. As suggested in the articles Q106795, Q107279 I changes the version Relationship. Verbose logging showed

TRANSFORM: This transform is not changing the 'Media.DiskId' column. No pre-transform fixup of this column is necessary.
MSI (s) (8C:98):
TRANSFORM: The maximum 'Media.LastSequence' or 'File.Sequence' value inserted by this transform is 3.
I set DiskId to 2 and 'File.Sequence' = 245(my original msi had 244 files).
Do I need to keep package code same for both previous and latest versions??

Can anyone help??

I'm not 100% sure, maybe someone could verify this, but I think you can change the package code, but you need to leave the product code and update code the same.

I'm not familiar with the log message you posted, but if I think of anything I'll post...
