I received the following error while running the Disk Builder in IS Express
v1.11a:

*** Error creating packing list.
*** Error number -10.

Here is the log of the process:
-Disk build process started.
-Validating setup data.
-Building setup data file.
-Compressing data files.
-Compressing the Program Files group.
-Compressing the BDE/IDAPI Files group.
-Compressing the BDE/IDAPI BLL Files group.
-Compressing the BDE/IDAPI CNF File group.
-Creating disk packaging list.

This error does not appear anywhere in Help. I also checked the Knowledge
Base with no success.

I would appreciate any suggestions.

Do you have enough diskspace?

I finally got it to work. There was plenty of disk space (>500Mb) but it
was on a network drive. I tried moving it to my local drive, and after a
few more error -10's, it completed the build. I am still not sure why I got
the -10 error or how I fixed it.

Was the project located on a network drive and did the install then
transfer the build to the network drive? And the errors went away once you
moved the project to the local drive?

If so, then it might be the case that the network closed the connection
while Express was building parts of the media which caused a seemingly "out
of diskspace" error.

That would be my assumption. Would that make sense?

Stefan,

I just posted basically the same error message, I had no luck in
finding any mention of it in any of available docs....

In my case this doesn't make any sense. I'm on a stand alone machine
not attached to any network and each of the drive letters available on
my machine has 300+MB available. The specific drive used for building
the setup has 310MB available. I'm able to successfuly build other
setups on the same drive but not the new one I just created. I tried
deleting the new setup and tried starting over from scratch but no
luck, still the -10 error.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Are there any differences in the setups? E.g. the one that works, and the
other that doesn't?

Hi Stefan,

Well... I think the answer the this "Error Creating Packing List;
Error Number -10" lies in the differences between these two directory
and file names...

"G:\Repo\New Account Download\InstallShield\New Account Download.iwz"

and...

"G:\Insurance Dept\WITS\InstallShield\WITS.iwz"

They both contain long filenames, however, the first builds just fine
and the second is the one receiving the Error -10. As a test I copied
the exact same WITS.IWZ file to a directory called "G:\TEMP\WITS.IWZ"
and lo and behold..., the project was built just fine.

So would be safe to say that InstallShield has problems with certain
combinations of long filenames and long path names?

Thanks for your time....

Try this... Rename "Insurance Dept" to "Insurance" and see what happens.
What you can also check is that there are no readonly flags set, or any
other readonly files anywhere.

Thanks for your help, Christine. All my files are on a network share. This
is the first time I've ever had this error. This project was fine. I've been
modifying it and building new installers from it, never had a problem. This
time I modified the files to be included in "Groups and Files" and the error
occurred. I had to create a new project. So is "copy all files to local" the
only solution for my problem? Thanks.

Jesse
