View Full Version : Error 1308. Source file not found on Vista32

My installer got an error 1308 on Vista32, saying "Source file not found: F:\bits\program files\..... Verify that the file exists and that you can access it."

I checked the file path, the file is right there.

It works fine on XP.

Do you have any clue?

if F:\... is a network mapped or subst mapped drive, that same mapping needs to be available in the administrator context. Open up an administrative command prompt and use that to check if the F:\... path exists and is correct. And if not, try using subst or net map to map it there.

The F:\... is a full file path, and I could access that path with the cmd line tool even without administrative privilage. There're a lot of other files in the same directory, but they could be copied to the target machine. The file that could not be copied is a registry file, I don't know if this matters.
