This error number can mean two things:

1. If the error does not have a path appended to it then it means that the CMInstall destination directory does not already exist and CMInstall is unable to create the destination directory.

2. If the error does have a path on the end (e.g. 1005/161/ then this means that CMInstall was unable to write a Path= statement to the ini file.


1. If the CMInstall /p option was used to specify the destination path, check that the /p is followed by a valid path.
If the operating system is earlier than Windows 2000 then ensure that the specified path already has a parent.  For example, if you specified c:abcdef, ensure that c:abc already exists.

2. If a .ini file already exists, ensure that it has a valid ini file structure.
