    Installer creator keeps crashing

    I was trying to create an installer for my plugin when suddenly the installer creation app crashed. Now everytime I try to run it it crashes before even opening. I get a windows application crashed message thats all. Any ideas what it might be?

    Could you post the message that windows gives you?
    Have you tried to delete and recreate the xml file that the installer creates?

    Tried removing the xml and uninstalling / reinstalling but still crashes

    heres the error message and detail behind.

    Is there a log fie for the installer?

    This is the last thing for me to do before I release my OMSkype plugin.

    Sorry for the slow reply, Life has kept me busy...

    The error messages says unauthorized access so I'm guessing it's trying to write to a folder where it's blocked. Are you running it as local administrator? If not try to run it as administrator to make sure that you have full write access.

    JustChat can probably provide some more details.

    The installer does not have a debug file.

    Could you post or pm me the xml file you've created? Then I could try to look for the error.

    Sorry for the slow response, I just became a dad and that's a full time job right now...

    I looked over your xml and I noticed that you're using files directly from the output folders from VS. I've had access problems for files in those folders before. Could you try to move all source files to another location and then recreate your xml with updated references?

    Know how you feel. I have three daughters . Tried all of that but it still crashes on start up. Does it store any settings in the registry I should clear?

    No there's no settings in anything else than the xml.

    You could send the whole project to me (in a pm) so I could do a test. I'd like to track down the error.

    Found out what it was. There was a file in the documents and settings folder that couldn't be deleted and there was no error trapping. Line 42 of the openinstaller program.cs --- Directory.Delete(InstallMaker.tempPath, true); was failing. When I manually deleted the file all was well.

    Great find! I'll update the code to make sure that it has an error handler. Thanks again!
