    windows installer can't create directory in wine


    Hi,

    I have a big problem installing my VB6 app in Wine. It says that it can't create a directory.

    I have tried installing a simple VB6 program in Wine and it works. But my real app(kinda huge with non MS DLLs) can't be installed.

    Btw, I'm using Debian(non stable version) and the latest version of Wine.

    Aslo, what do I have to do so that I can install in Wine with MSI versions of installers?

    Thanks a lot in advance.

    Regards,

    lakerdonald,

    It was after creating/choosing the program group.
    The error was: "Could not create directory: \MYVbprogram"
    "Abort" "Retry" "Ignore" buttons are also availale.

    I already clicked those three available buttons but nothing happened.
    I have no other choice but to proceed with "abort" and the installer aborts the installation process.

    thanks.

    Yes, I already did that.
    Actually, I changed the installer. Because it was my installer that will create the folder called "database". Before, running the program, I made the "database" folder.

    Also during the installation, I found the following error.

    An error occured while registering the file "C:\Windows\System\itircl.dll' and some other DLLs like hhctrl, msadox.dll, scrun.dll.

    Another one:
    Unexpected error found -2147221168
    Automation error

    But the last error is in my program. I think it has to do with writing/reading registry. Because on the first launch of the program, it will read and write some registry info. Please tell me something about registry issues in Wine.

    Thanks a lot for your help.
