If you are trying to create an installation package or a setup package when this error appears, maybe there is a problem with some of the parameters in the installation script. You should check all of the locations of the files that will be executed in the script if all of their paths are correct.

You should check if the texts are entered exactly as it appears in the original file location. There is no room for a typographical error here because it will make the process to suddenly stop because of a missing file or something.

But the truth is, it’s only a mistyped character in the file’s path and the file is really not missing. You should also check if the parameters used on the executables are correct.

You may also try restarting your computer then try again.
