Description: (minor) MSI Installer fails on subst drives
I have most of my non-OS files in a directory called c:\diskq and use the
Windows "subst" command to create a virtual drive Q: that points there. When
trying to install PGSQL from the Windows installer in from
Q:\etc\pgsql\SETUP.bat, the installer complains that it cannot open
postgresql-8.3-int.msi even though it really is located in Q:\etc\pgsql\.
The problem is solved by running the setup from c:\diskq\etc\pgsql\SETUP.bat
instead of Q:\etc\pgsql\SETUP.bat.
A similar error occurs, however, when trying to install *to* a "subst" drive
(but, miraculously so, only after a number of files are copied).
The problem is easily solved by only installing from and to the same paths
on the "real" drive though. Maybe at least worth a FAQ entry?
Good work on the installer!
