View Full Version : This installation package could not be opened.

Greetings all,

I am using a trial version of InstallShield Express 2009.

I am using it as part of a larger install that uses the Intelligent Updater (bootstrapper) whereby I have three packages that I am installing from the web.

When installing from the web, the first package is downloaded by the bootstrapper and I can see the download progress. As soon as it is done downloading a messagebox pops up stating "This installation package could not be opened. Contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package."

When I run the same setup.exe program directly on my computer it runs okay. But there is a messagebox that pops up twice to announce "This is an EVALUATION VERSION of InstallShield." which also requires that you click on the OK button.

I am wondering if this extra button (perhaps hidden behind the intelligent updater window) may be causing it not to work as part of the larger install.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Paul
