View Full Version : Error: null - corrupt VPD?

Hi All,

Has anybody come across the following?

You launch the installer and many of the strings in the dialogs are just "Error: null"

I've narrowed down the issue to possibly a corrupt VPD .... My "corrupt" vpd.script file seems to missing a bunch of initial "CREATE TABLE" entries.

If I move or rename my C:\Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield\Universal\common\Gen2\_vpddb folder, and rerun the installer then all is well. Unfortunately, this may not be a real solution since we would like to keep any info collected in the VPD thus far (if there is any).

Does anybody know if this issue could inadvertantly be caused by changing a few PropertyResources strings in the engine.jar? (I did this as a test, and have since reverted.)

Cheers,
Rob
