ERROR: Could not create Setup Archive

I create a setup using InstallForge and this is all working fine. I save my IFP file so that I can use it again.

Next time I want to build a setup file, I load the IFP file from my previous successful build and now it cannot create the "setup archive", If I have asked it to include the uninstaller, it fails even sooner with "Cannot archive uninstaller".

The only way I have found around it, is to create a new installer project from scratch and re-enter all of the same parameters. Then, it works just fine. If I save this, then re-open it with no changes to any of the files for my application or to the IF project, it fails again as above.

I am new to InstallForge .. what am I missing/doing wrong?

Sounds strange. I will have a look at this issue.

Does that happen each time?

Something similar happened to me (most likeli same reason);
ERROR: could not archive uninstaller

No idea. Same project file ran yesterday.
Thanks for a quick solution.

Found a quick workaround:
in the InstallFOrge folder there is only an update.exe, so I ran this one, this produced th ERROR mentioned above.
When I started the ifbuilderenvx86.exe in bin, it worked fine...

So this happens when you run the updater, which launches InstallForge?
