Description

16 years ago
i'm using a custom installer build for bug 125411, and in testing it, i got 
error -202. I need to know exactly what went wrong.

As a normal end user, i'd like at least 2 sentenced, one explaining what went 
wrong and one suggesting what to do with it.

As a developer, I'd like as many pointers as you can give me.

the only info i have is:
nsInstall.h's mapping of -202 to a define.
            ACCESS_DENIED               = -202,
and a list of consumers of ACCESS_DENIED.

System:
7100/66, 104mb ram, 9.0.4, vm off
src disk: w2k AppleShare ["Share"]
dst disk: w2k AppleShare ["Share"]
free space on disk: ~80mb
the boot disk has free space, but it's a slow and noisy disk so i've prefered 
to use the w2k share instead.

     Install **FAILED** with error -202  --  06/23/2002 10:02:29

At the very least, the installer could have suggested I check the Install Log 
for details.

Quoth Steve Dagley: "The Mac installer code was never Carbonized and there is no
intention to ever change that."
