Re: [HTCondor-users] Failed to build 8.0.0 using WiX with win7, MSVS2010, WiX 3.7

You can go into the xml files used to generate the installer and manually modify the paths as a workaround. As for exactly why the problem occurred, I'm not sure we actually extensively tested building on 32bit platforms. Also, are you using Visual Studio Express or Pro?

Hi there,

I am trying to replicate something I have had working in the past for earlier
versions of all packages.

I have a 32-bit win7 machine

I have installed Condor 8.0.0 from an MSI file.

I have installed Visual Studio 2010

I have installed WiX Toolset v3.7

I fire up a Visual Studio Command prompt
 (as that  has the VS compilers and tools on the %PATH%)

I add the WiX bin to the %PATH%

I cd to the condor\etc\WiX directory

I run do_wix.bat

I see a couple of messages suggesting that Condor's WiX file is a
bit out of date wrt 3.7, however, things trundle on until the "light:"
command is run, at which point I see errors about a file below

C:/Program Files (x86)/Common Files/

which, "despite not being a windows man you understand", I am aware
is the 32-bit PATH that windows uses on 64-bit machines.

I am not on a 64-bit machine so what's going on ?

Have attached the full output from the Visual Studio Command prompt

Any insight welcome,
