    Question [moved] makesis pkg file problem with FP2

    Hi,

    in my pkg file I have the following code that controls the installation based upon the machine ID.

    IF ((MachineUID = <some machnine id>) OR (MachineUID = <some machnine id>) ... )

    ELSE
    "file.txt" -"",FT,TE
    ENDIF

    for MR and FP1 this works fine, but for FP2 where makesis fails with:

    error: invalid destination path or syntax.
    ***Non-Zero Status: makesis.exe returned with exit value = 1

    Make sure that there is no special character in a statement (-"",FT,TE).

    Which specific line is causing the problem in your .pkg file?

    Give it a try with giving fullname for FT and TE. FILETEXT, TEXTEXIT

    The line

    "file.txt" -"",FT,TE

    is responsible ... if I remove it it works.
    I have also tried the full command names FILETEXT, TEXTEXIT. I have also tried without TE, but nothing helped.

    regards

    And what about special character??? once delete this line and type by your own, it might work.

    well, I'll try this too since I have no better idea at the moment, but I don't give it much hope since the same line works quit well for MR and FP1 builds

    Re: [moved] makesis pkg file problem with FP2

    Well, as I have already suspected, there were no special characters, but I have found another thing which dazzles me even more. Inside the IF clause I had a line:

    ""-"!:\Data\MyDir\*.*", FN

    which removes that path upon uninstall. If I remove this line everything works

    I do not see the connection ... this particular line is within the IF clause and the other one is ("file.txt" -"",FT,TE) in the ELSE clause.
    How on earth those two can be in conflict ?!
