VSeWSS 1.3 - Please wait while the installer finishes determining your disk space requirements

I have been working on creating a new Windows Server 2008 virtual machine lately, so I decided to grab the latest version of VSeWSS 1.3.  I immediately encountered the following error when trying to install.

Please wait while the installer finishes determining your disk space requirements.

The only option is to click the “Return” button and wait.  Unfortunately, it never stops.  After doing a quick Google search, I came across this post which describes the issue with MSI packages.  It wasn’t related to SharePoint but put me in the right direction.  This applied to an MSI file though and the VSeWSS download is not an MSI file its an EXE.  I figured there was a command line option to extract the MSI and in fact there is.

VSeWSSv13_x86_Feb2009CTP_Build_429.exe /extract <workingfolder>

Just specify a folder you want the extracted file to go into there.  Then you can execute the MSI file as such with msiexec and the issue does not occur.

msiexec /i VSeWSS_v13_x86_Build-429.msi

Not sure why I ran into this issue, but in case you do, hopefully this helps.

On a side note, I’m on twitter now.

This solved my problem installing BizTalk Adapters for Enterprise Applications on Windows Server 2008. I ran:

install.exe /extract "<current folder>"

(Trying it with setup.exe in the same foilder didn't work)

This is a general fix for this:

Right click on the .exe, go to properties.

Click on Unblock, then run the .exe
