See more: C++ MFC VS2010 msi setup
I'm trying to develop an MSI installer for my freeware application but I got the error: Could not find file 'D:\Projects\BundleSetup\Debug\IntelliFile.exe' 'The system cannot find the file specified.' This file is not dependant of any other file.
How did I get here?
1. Create a new "Setup Wizard" project, with Visual Studio 2010, called BundleSetup.
2. Add the IntelliFile project to this solution (it is a custom project developed by me)
3. Add primary output of IntelliFile project to BundleSetup project.
4. Build all => The result is the error message Could not find file 'D:\Projects\BundleSetup\Debug\IntelliFile.exe'

Do you think we are connected to your hard drive and can tell you what to fix? If you do, please explain why, I would like to read about it... :-)

Too bad this is a comment SA, otherwise I'd have +5'd it and sat with bated breath for the (no doubt hilarious) response.

Solution 1

The thing is your msi builder cannot find the specific file.
it mean your file is not exists.

Another issue, do not build your msi with debug version of the executable. make sure it is a release vesion
