View Full Version : Error -1001 when uninstalling

05-13-2004, 06:37 PM
I work on an installation project that installs 3 services.
The 3 service exe's have NET installer classes.
There is also another dll in the project that has an installer class.
The problem arises when one of the services is shut down before the uninstallation begins.
Then, there is an error message saying Error -1001, could not find file ... or one of its dependants.
And the uninstall rolls back.
After that, all files have disappeared, but the services are still listed in the Services console.
The only way to get out is to sc delete the services, repair the install, make sire all services are running, and then uninstall.
This is very strange. I would have to get some help on this issue, please...


This was meant to go in DevStudio 9 newsgroup. Sorry...:rolleyes:

I was curious if you ever resolved this issue, as I am seeing the same behavior.
Please let me know,
