I am not able to install the CAB_CS.msi on a clean install of Vista RC1. I am getting an error when the install trys to create the visual studio solution. There is no error message other than and error occured.

At that point Vista rolls back the install so I end up where I started <grin>.

Vista was installed with a format of the sytem. I installed Visual Studio 2005, windows sdk, workflow, and the visual studio extensions for the sdk.

Has anybody else seen this? Is there a doc that goes through the proper order of install if one wants to do CAB on Vista?

Have you seen these posts? They might be helpful for you.


If you are still having problems with the installer and you need to have CAB installed urgently, you can disable the UAC and it will work (NOTE: THIS IS NOT A RECOMMENDED PRACTICE).

Interesting input from them. Looks like there are going to be some changes coming in the install world.

I also was able to isolate the problem to the unit test portions of the solutions.

If I dont install anything related to unit test it seems to install ok. Not a good long term solution, but it might help for the short term.
