When executing a Wise Script installation .EXE, an error message appears, "Could not load the DLL library C:\WINNT\System32\advapi32.dll," when running the installation.
This occurs during the execution of the Check Service script action.
Wise Installation System 9.02
Wise Package Studio—all versions
Windows* NT, 2000, and XP
The executable has been built to support 16- and 32-bit operating systems. The 32-bit .DLLs cannot load properly from this configuration. This is by the design and function of the operating system.
To resolve this issue:
- Open the .WSE project file.
- Go to Installation Expert > Build Settings.
- Select Windows 95 and NT (True Win32) from the Destination Platforms drop-down list.
- Save and compile.
