  • I'm going to guess that you did not uncheck the box for "Include all files and sub-folders in this location." when building your package.

    I don't know - however there are no "files and sub-folders in this location" unless some semiliterate MS app designer meant something other than the place I'm loading the file from...

  • There are no other folders or files (including hidden system files) in the same directory as the msi you are packaging?
    I just downloaded the PowerShell CTP x86 msi and it was a 3.8MB file, which packaged seamlessly with SCE into a 2.9MB package. There appears to be something amiss with your setup as opposed to being wrong with SCE.
    If you would kindly refrain from making distasteful and uncalled for comments it would be greatly appreciated also.

  • Hi,
    If you open the \\***\UpdateServicesPackages\74cd60bc-a728-42cf-84eb-b280cf60b2e8\ directory what do you see? This is the files SCE did detect in the directory you specifyed during the wizard.
