    I'm using the Veritas WinInstall program that came on the Win2K CD to create MSI files, but I'm not having any luck.

    I've created a "clean" PC by installing XP on a freshly formatted HD, and installed all updates.
    Then I run the Discoz.exe to create the before snapshot, then install the program I want.
    I reboot and run the Discoz.exe to create the after snapshot. Then I pull up the MSI file in the console to clean up any extra registry entries, etc, and I find that there are no files listed.

    I have tried other programs as well, and also installing the program without rebooting. Each time on a clean PC.

    Any ideas???

    This looks interesting but I have no experience with it. However if found what looks like a getting started manual for it at the following address:

    http://www.ondemandsoftware.com/pdfs/GettingStartedWinstall.pdf#search="Veritas WinInstall program "

    The best suggestion I would have is to ask if you have called their tech support for any help on this problem.

    The other suggestion that might help is to click on the little triangle at the top right and ask a moderator if there is a better place to put this thread so you might get some better help for it. Like under Software and Hardware for example

    I read the PDF file, and that's pretty much what I am doing. The problem is that the WinInstall isn't detecting any new files... even though there are a ton of new files...
