Hello all,

I am attempting to use the "/createMSI" command line switch with Paint.Net 2.61 to create an MSI suitable for Group Policy deployment on a Windows 2000 Active Directory network. The MSI is created successfully, and I can use it to install on individual workstations. When, however, I attempt to add the MSI as a new package in the group policy (under the "User Configuration\Software Settings\Software Installation" key), I receive the following error:

Add operation failed.  Unable to extract deployment information from the package.  Run validation on the package to ensure that the package is correct.

Following the directions of this package, I downloaded Microsoft's Orca MSI editing/validation program (version 3.1.4000.2049) and attempted to validate the MSI under the "Windows 2000 Logo Program Suite" option. Unfortunately, the MSI will not validate. The three errors that I get are as follows:

ICE08	ERROR	Component: C__C08B0CE0650062A8481C7009710B08A1 has a duplicate GUID: {5DB3B30F-F40C-9328-67D8-CB61A1C500D1}

ICE30	ERROR	The target file 'PAINTD~2.DLL|PaintDotNet.Resources.dll' is installed in '[TARGETDIR]\' by two different components on an LFN system: 'C__60B027B3CDE8EE39AE49C7A1C1844214' and 'C__C08B0CE0650062A8481C7009710B08A1'. This breaks component reference counting.

ICE30	ERROR	The target file 'PAINTD~2.DLL|PaintDotNet.Resources.dll' is installed in '[TARGETDIR]\' by two different components on an LFN system: 'C__60B027B3CDE8EE39AE49C7A1C1844214' and 'C__C08B0CE0650062A8481C7009710B08A1'. This breaks component reference counting.

Although I am not an expert at MSI's, it appears that the MSI is configured to install the same file twice. There are also some other warnings that pop up during validation, but these are the only errors.

Is it possible that these errors would be responsible for the difficulties in configuring this MSI as a software package within the group policy, or would something else cause this?

Any help or suggestions appreciated. I can post a full copy of the Orca validation results of the MSI if that would be helpful.

Hmm, other people have had success with this so I'm not sure why it's throwing errors at you. I am not very familiar with AD deployment, nor do I have access to an AD network where I am an administrator, and have had to implement this stuff relatively blindly. I don't know why these errors would cause problems with configuring a group policy deployment.

PaintDotNet.Resources.dll is indeed targeted twice in our MSI, but it's because the setup project in Visual Studio does not handle dependencies correctly in some cases (if you include project A's "primary output" which is an EXE, and some other B.EXE, both of which depend on C, it will include C twice in the MSI).

Go ahead and post the full Orca results, I'll see if I can find anything in there.

Hi Rick,

The feeling I got from searching on Google et. al was that the "/createMSI" option generally worked for people. I suspect that the problem must lie with our AD setup rather than with the MSI created.

Here are the Orca results based on the "Windows 2000 Logo Program Suite" evaluation file. Hopefully they will be of use in further development.
