MSI File is needed for repair, but it is not storeed

Thu Aug 02, 2018 10:19 pm

Hello,
I Use the AI 13.3 enterprise.

When the user selewcts after installation repair in the control panel the msi package is not found.

I can check the option "Do not delete extracted MSI and CAB files", then repair works. But then all files are there extracted, and not in an msi file.
How to make repair from the msi possible?

Thanks,
Chris

Hello Chris,

Unfortunately, the only way to avoid such an issue is to use a .EXE setup (with resources inside) and enable the "Do not delete extracted MSI and CAB files" options from the "Boostrapper Options".

For more details about this, you can take a look at the "Repair asks for MSI" thread.
