ERROR_INDEX_ABSENT 1611 The component qualifier not present.

Hello. I am trying to create a patch from Patch design view. I resolve all the compile errors and now at run time while running update.exe. It gives an error "1611: Unable to extract file ." I have already checked the drive space and write permissions. It seems to be some other issue. I checked on MSI SDK.

It has these details on this error: ERROR_INDEX_ABSENT: The component qualifier is invalid or absent.

I am not using any published components in base release. Please help me, if anybody has faced this issue before.

Thanks.

Hello Nelson,

What you are getting might just be a bug in the setup, and therefore it will be very risky to call MsiProvideQualifiedComponent during a custom action, as it seems to be doing right now, since it  may result in calling other Msi functions and hang up the install, which is what's happening in your case.

Regards,

Nicke
