    MSI Distribution Job Fails: MSI result 80070643

    Apprentice

      I am having some errors that are ocurring with a MSI distribution package.  The bottom of the SDClient log is pasted below.  Can I tell anything before trying to run the package manually on this particular machine?

       

       

       

      Starting Action : Action 8:00:20: IsolateComponents.

      Starting Action : Action 8:00:20: CostFinalize. Computing space requirements...

      Starting Action : Action 8:00:34: CheckBEInstCondition.DDC9D041_01CA_426E_B0B1_C2EE76DEC2BA.

      Failed to install the MSI package.

          Having a similar error today with a batch file distribution job that installs two different MSIs.  The results on these show a Installation Result of 80070643.  How can you convert these errors?  I tried using the  LD error Translator, but that didn't give me much to gon on.  I'm not sure what the facility and error mean.

            Not sure how to deal with those numbers because they end up being nonsense most of the time. Best way to determine what is going on is to look in the event logs on a failing machine and see if the MSI even started. It could be that you are passing a switch that msiexec doesn't acknowledge and then LANDesk doesn't report back what would be visual on the screen or hidden, but is acually that msi switch dialogue window.

              JMAC, thank you for responding.  Your suggestion really helped.  I went to the Application event log and was able to find an error at the time of installation.  I'll have to go back to the Vendor at this point to figure out why this error is being generated.

               

              Thanks,
