VS.NET 2008 Web Setup Project Interrupted during MSI install in Vista - Solved (for me)

I'm sure many of you have had problems with this based on the number of great blog entries about it:

Here's what I had to do to get everything working:

  • Make sure II6 compatibility is installed

  • Make sure your custom action code is running elevated

  • Make sure you have no folders named 'filters' in your website

The WEBCA_EvaluteURLSNoFail post mentions several of the IIS6 metabase entries...

4)Most commonly you'll see things like "APPPOOLS", "FILTERS", "INFO", and "1" (1 is the default website)

Which got me started thinking, I have a subfolder named filters. Changing nothing else but renaming the filters subfolder made it finish properly. I'm assuming you might have the same problems with folders named apppools, info, or 1 as well.

(cropped log file is below...)

I've been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's
pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and
bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more
useful than ever before.
