Are you including a file in the install with a .pwd extension? What
O/S version are you installing on?

hi, im not including any file with .pwd extension, and im working in Windows XP, the installation program told me that it can't found it in this path "C:\Documents and Settings\MY_USER\local Configuration\Temp\fiel.pwd", and i search the file and doesnt exist.
If i run the wizard for a small app, it runs OK, but with this one it install it and then uninstall it tha app.
i dont know if i have other options, like another package program or something like that. wihtout it, its going to be very hard to deliver the application.

hi, im going to put the beginig of the SETUP.LST
SetupText=Copiando archivos, espere.
TmpDir=msftqws.pdw <------- this file is the problem file
when it finish, it says that it cant register that file because it cant found it, and thats true, that file doest exist, but from where it takes that file????

Ok, now I get the general idea. That isn't supposed to be a file,
it is a temporary directory the Package and Deployment Wizard
uses to unpack the cab file. It should be deleted at the end of the
install. It shouldn't be trying to register it at all. The P&DW has
been known not to work very well making installs for XP. There
might be some resolution for this on the msdn.microsoft.com site.

i didnt found any solution in the msdn site, do you know another tool that does the same???
I have had very good luck so far with INNO Setup. It seems to be somewhat less automated than the PDW, but more flexible. A search here (or on Google, etc.) should turn up a link to the site where you can download it for free. :)

If you are asking about an install program try INNO. :D
Do a search on Yahoo (or other search engine) for it.
Hope this helps
EDIT : Tooooooooo slow again

hi, now i got another question, that INNO only makes the installation of the exe file, what append if i got a database, and how i know what dll's my program needs????
because the wizard extract that info for me, but that thing doesnt work for me.
