View Full Version : Error 2318 During a patch installation.

06-26-2008, 03:02 PM
I get a dialog during a MSP patch installation (no setup.exe) saying, "Error 2318. File does not exist: C:\Config.Msi\PT462D.tmp"

What does that mean? Yeah, sure file doesn't exist, but how do I relate this to my project?

The 'File does not exist' message is perhaps a bit misleading, but appears to be associated with an entry in the Directory table which may be the same as an existing MSI property or key word.

KB Q107315 (http://support.installshield.com/kb/view.asp?articleid=Q107315) shows the fix for one cause.

Take a look in the Directory table of the project using the Direct Editor view or a tool like Orca, in 'Directory' column, which is the first column, for one of the key words listed in Q105571 (http://support.installshield.com/kb/view.asp?articleid=Q105571).

And, back the project up before changing raw table entries!
