VB 6.0 - Installation error - Asked By Robbe Morris Is My Hero on 07-Nov-01 02:40 PM

When i try to run the installation package made in the packaging & deployment wizard, I get this error (copied from the installation log)...  I have no idea what the msftqws.pdw file would be...  anyone know why this would happen?

*** ERROR: The file 'C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\msftqws.pdw\$(DLLSelfRegisterEx)' could not be registered because it was not found.

I found this one Google - Asked By Robbe Morris on 07-Nov-01 02:46 PM

I just put in msftqws.pdw

Apparently, there are several reasons this could be a problem.

it was a problem with registering the MSCAL calendar control with the setup.lst file...   it should be $(DLLSelfRegister), not $(DLLSelfRegisterEx)... stupid MS...
