I am trying to create an install script to install Dawn of War: Dark Crusade from the retail DVD.
The script starts the setup.exe from the DVD, but then InstallShield gives this error:
“An error(-5006 : 0x80070003) has occured while running the setup.
Please make sure you have finished any previous setup and closed other applications.
If the error still occurs, please contact your vendor”
The additional details of the error are:
"Error Code: -5006 : 0x80070003
PAPP:Dawn of War - Dark Crusade
@Windows XP Service Pack 1 (7601) BT_OTHER 33440.83"
It seems to me that InstallShield cannot install the game, because there is some other installation still trying to run, while the installation from the DVD starts.
I am not sure how to stop other instances of InstallShield
This is also my first attempt at creating a script, so I might be doing something wrong. Here is the script draft I am trying.
exe: $GAMEDIR/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/THQ/Dawn of War - Dark Crusade/DarkCrusade.exe
I have tried it with both 32 bit and 64 bit architectures. I also tried it with and without the blocking statement in the install task, but it does not make a difference.
Any help and advice on creating the install script will be appreciated.
