View Full Version : Error 5051 false alert!

11-12-2005, 02:17 PM

Hello all,

I am trying to create my 1st Windows Mobile InstallShield Setup for one of our Windows Mobile 2003 applications, using InstallShield 11 Express (ISEXP).

The setup process "breaks" with the ISEXP complaining that the the application config file is read-only (see below)

ISEXP : error -5051: Could not remove the read-only attribute from the file "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator.THINKPAD\My Documents\Visual Studio Projects\IHDIAPARPB\IHDIAPARPB.exe.config"

I checked the file only to find out that it is NOT read-only. Then I checked whether the Setup.ini file in the Support folder is read-only (according to the instructions given in KB article). Again, I found out that the Setup.ini file was NOT read-only.

Does anyone have an idea of what might be going wrong?

Thank you for your time,
Panayotis Tzedakis.
