When running GWTuner to create a transform file, after hitting the "finish" button, an "A WIndows Installer Database Error has occurred 0(110)" is displayed and the transform file is not created.


1. Remove the read only attributes from the files in the client directory on the server.
2. Delete "C:\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Temp\groupwise.msi" file from the workstation running GWtuner.exe.
3. Close GWTuner and run it again.

Additional Information

This was happening because the GroupWise client directory was copied to the server from a CD, but the read only attribute was not removed. One of the steps that GWTuner performs is to copy the groupwise.msi file to the user's "C:\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Temp" folder. Since this file was flagged as read only it is copied to that folder with the read only attribute. Simply changing the attribute in the client folder on the server won't solve the problem because GWTuner can't delete the file from the temp folder due to the read only flag. So once you've had the problem on a particular machine you would continue to have it until you remove the read only attribute on the server as well as delete the file from the temp directory.
