We have a customer that is trying to make 1 simple Registry setting change. I instructed him how to do it. From my experience it always works, but not this time. The REG file is correct. When he placed it in the \application directory then cold booted an error was presented. Checking with regedit revealed that the REG setting did not occur. I was able to reproduce the same error on a separate device using the same OS image files.
Error Msg Details:
Error during update:
Cause: Package file not found,
Function: PostDownload, Line: 2799,
Hr: 0x1, GetLastError: 6
When NO reg file is in the \application directory, no error is presented. If any legitimate REG file is in the \application directory, we get the same error. This tells me that RegMerge is executing and seeing the file then failing to merge the setting due to the error. But if NO REG file is present, RegMerge must be checking but finding no REG file, then ending without error. So it is the execution of the Merging function that is failing. Missing dll or something?
I have never seen this before. However, if one was to tap the REG file on the device, it merges fine without error. It is only when it supposed to happen during a cold boot do we get the error.
Has anyone seen this or have any ideas?
