What is an HRESULT?
I had repackaged an application using Wise Package Studio. After compiling the application into an msi and attempting to install, I received two dll registration errors. I resolved the issue be editing the install and selecting the Setup Editor option and navigating to the components tab. I found the offending dlls and in the file details of the particular dlls and I set self-registration to none, instead of the default of unordered. After compilation, the setup proceeded without error.
- Product: Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer 2.0 - From a newsgroup post: "This problem is potentially caused by some Windows operating systems having corrupted information concerning the registration state of ATL.DLL. Running "regsvr32 C:\Windows\System32\ATL.DLL" solved the problem".
- Product: Microsoft BizTalk Server 2002 - As per Microsoft: "Do not install BizTalk Server on a domain controller. Installation of Microsoft BizTalk Server on a domain controller is not a supported configuration". See ME830465 for more details.
