View Full Version : Files In Use

04-04-2002, 07:51 AM
I am installing apache (.msi file) just after an install of Win 98. The apache installation is called from my IS 7.02 standard project. As the apache installation runs, it stops with an error saying that some file (filename not shown) is in use and it lists the applications running (the only one was InstallShield setup itself). Has anyone seen this before?

I would suggest you to launch MSI engine before launching the setup.exe on such machine. After installing MSI engine, launch setup.exe and check results.

Shouldn't IS 7.02 be installing the msi engine itself before running any of my installscript code? Under what conditions DOES it install the msi engine anyways?

Yes, you are right. Setup.exe installs MSI engine on target machine automatically but sometime due to some problem, it does not make MSI engine install on target machine. In that case, setup show such behavior. You can try by launching MSI engine first and then setup.exe.
