View Full Version : Compress files build problem

Hi,

I am using dev7.0. If I build with the option of leaving files
uncompressed, everything fine. If I build, with compressed files, it
always got stuck somewhere before or after DATA1.cab got created. And
then a "This program performs an illegal operation" error box showed up
with the details specifying a kernel32.dll fault. I am using "CD-ROM"
as Media Type. Yesterday I searched this newsgroup and found some
suggestion as turning off the "Optimize size" option. I was then able to
complete the build but unfortunately that error box still showed up.
Plus the build was really slow.

I am seeking help here, for I do want the files to be compressed.
Thanks.

Josephine

Make sure to get Dev 7.01 (or 7.02 due out shortly). I don't think there are
any specific fixes for anything related to this, but it's good to have the
latest anyway because there are a number of other fixes.

Anyway, it this a problem with only this one particular setup or can you
reproduce the issue when you build even a small setup that includes only a
couple of files (and is compressed)? In other words, is this a problem with
all compressed setups built on that machine or just the one?

The problem is not related to a small setup (only a couple of files and is
compressed). But My installation is not that big.
The size of DATA1.cab is about 140,807KB. And the msi file is about 12,500KB.

For testing purpose, I cut the size of my installation by half, deleting most of
the merge modules. The error message still showed up though. Seems to me the
build is only fine for extremely small installations when using compressed
files.

Thanks,
Josephine

Make sure your system has plenty of hard drive space, especially on the
drive that contains the TEMP folder for Windows.

I have about 2 GB free space. Not enough?

Thanks,

I heard a good analogy once for kernel32.dll errors...

You're driving along in your car and suddenly you spin out of control and
crash into a telephone pole. Kernel32.dll is the telephone pole. Although
it's your end result, your problem is no doubt elsewhere...

Since no one else seems to be having this problem, I would try
uninstalling/reinstalling Developer. Backup your projects first.
