Self-contained client installation package failes with Add File [your_agent_configuration_name] failed!

Version 2

    Description

     

    Creation of a self-contained client installation package fails with the following error in the log file:

     

    FCIAddFile() failed(your_agent_configuration_name): code 1 [Failure opening file to be stored in cabinet]

    Add File [your_agent_configuration_name] failed!

    MakeCAB failed

     

     

    Solution

     

    Make sure that there are no forbidden characters in the agent configuration name: <agent cofiguration name>.msi. Windows Installer does not allow the following characters in file names:

     

    +
    ,  (comma)
    ;  (semicolon)
    =
    [ ]  (square brackets)
    an embedded space
