VB Net Deployment Installation fails with Cryptic error message

P: n/a
Program builds solution and setup projects with no reported errors.

Building and deploying as loose uncompressed files works just fine.

Debug Building and deploying as a setup file results in the following error
message during installation

Folder "FL_msvcp71_dll_2_____X86.3643236F etc etc " cannot be installed
because the file cannot be found in cabinet "_377163EC311 etc etc" This
could be a network error, an error reading from the CD Rom or a problem with
this package.

Release Building and deploying as a setup file results in the following
error message during installation

Folder "_FE19EF9B etc etc " cannot be installed because the file cannot be
found in cabinet "_A8B885AE etc etc" This could be a network error, an
error reading from the CD Rom or a problem with this package.

Does anyone have a clue as to what is going on.

The installation is not on a network, the build works fine, no CD is
involved, and installation as loose files works fine.

Sounds like a corrupt 'cab' file', but why are you deploying the 'debug'
version anyway?

Turn off virus scanners and try again.

Virus scanners are off and the problem exists for both a debug and a release
deployment

Same problem with debug or release versions.

What cab file are you refering to ?

Did you select "In the CAB file(s)" in the project properties ->
"Configuration settings" -> "Build" -> "Package files:"?

The problem occurs if I select either the "Setup File" or the CAB file
option. No problem exists if I select the loose files option for
deployment.
