I have been trying to use InstallEase to create MSI packages for deployment. I have been unable to create an installer that successfully performs the process.
I have had a variety of errors in my testing. One consistent one referenced some registry keys that had no value, and the MSI could not be created. This persisted no matter how much I removed from the snapshot. I did an easy one, where I copied files to the Program Files (x86) directory and then created links to those files and placed them on the desktop. I was able to complete the process and an MSI file was generated. After reverting the changes I made so I could test the installer, I attempted to use this MSI. The "Gathering required Information" part takes longer that I have seen on other MSI installers. I am not sure if that is related. I get an error that it could not write a value to a key in the registry. That I should check if I have sufficient privileges.
For reference, the details of this test environment are. The OS is Windows 10 (latest build and updates) running as a VM (hyper-V). Using a local user account that has admin privileges. The Host OS is also a Windows 10 (latest build and updates) running on a Workstation laptop (Xeon processor, ECC RAM, etc).
Any thoughts are appreciated.
