View Full Version : Unpacked Files Differ From Originals

11-03-2001, 06:13 PM
I have been distributing a package created with PackageForTheWeb 2.1 for about a year. I am trying to update some of the files in that package but when the new package unpacks many of the files are different from the originals. I upgraded to 4.01 and am seeing the same behavior. These changes are causing an exception when my setup runs and I cannot install my updated application.

I tried this on two other machines with different OS, Win2k and Win Me. I have also tried the two versions, 2.1 and 4.01. The operating system that did work was Win 95 with version 2.1 but that machine is no longer around.

The differences in the files are as follows:

About 40 occurances of the BYTE 0x76 now show up as 0x7E
3 occurrances of the BYTE 0xF7 change to 0xFF

There are 10 files affected, most with a different number of differences.

Any help you can give would be appreciated as I am trying to get updates out to my customers.
