Setup for VS.Net 2003

P: n/a
OK, I have Windows 2000 & Visual Studio 2003. I have a project to which I
have added the setup wizard. I build the wizard and it outputs my MSI file.

Problem, when I try to install the MSI, I get an error telling me that the
path "." is not valid. Any one know what the problem is?

When I installed Windows and VS I just put "." as the name and as the
company name. This is the only thing that I can think is related. So, I
went through the registry and changed this but still not working.

You can try to change the setup project's 'Manufacturer' property. Setup
will create a folder consisting of "%%PROGRAMFILES%\<Manufacturer name>", if
the manufacturer name is "." the folder cannot be created because "." is not
a valid folder name.

Untested: Select the setup project and change the value of its
'Manufacturer' property. Maybe this is sufficient.
