Tangible Thoughts SharePoint, MOSS? and all the other questions

For a long time I’ve wanted to try out Jim Duncan’s Connectable Page Viewer WebPart, but for some reason or other, the setup never worked proper for me. It runs halfway and stops.

Today with the use of a new tool I found I was able to finally install that WebPart. That tool is Make MSI. Its some freebie I found on the net, it lets you do several MSI related tasks, and one of them is to run the MSI with verbose logging. So what did the log tell me about the failed install of “Collutions Web Part - cPageViewer.msi”? It told me that there were some files written to %programfiles%\WPPackager\{7c9f7174-2e36-4afb-bcf4-66acb7aeeb0a}. There I found the WebPart cab file and was able to install it using stsadm.

Btw the cPageViewer WebPart is cool J
