General Description: While attempting to install M1.5 (Implementation Tools CD or Documentation CD), a dialog box may appear with the heading "ComponentMoveData Error Information."
"ComponentMoveData" is an InstallShield function. According to InstallShield documentation, this function transfers/decompresses files that are associated with selected components in an install file media library. The data following the heading gives an indication of what the specific problem is.
"ComponentMoveData had the following error:
Media Name: data Component: InstallType\Network\SharedDLLs File Group: Shared 95 dlls File: G:\ctl3d32.dll Error Number: -113"
An error value of -113 means that a file could not be opened in read-only mode.
An error value of -115 means that a file could not be opened for writing.
Because the components of the message can vary depending upon the cause of the error in each case, please reference the solutions below to determine which error has taken place.
If ComponentMoveData had the following error when installing the Implementation Tools CD-ROM (as seen on Windows95):
Media Name: data Component: xxx/Data File Group: data file: C:\DOS\_ISTMPO.DIR\FileGrp\data\xcs05_PC84.bsd Error Number: -113
then the fix to this problem is as follows:
1. Invoke the Windows95 Control Panel (Start->Settings->Control Panel).
2. Double-click on System to bring up the System Properties dialog box.
4. Deselect (turn off) the "Disable long name preservation for old programs" option.
Windows95 will prompt you to restart your computer before this new setting takes effect.
This option turns off a feature which preserves long file names when files are opened and saved by applications that do not recognize long filenames. This option should be checked in the rare case that an important legacy application is not compatible with long file names. Enabling this feature sets PreserveLongNames=0 in the registry.
Some machines (notably Toshiba Tecras) have the above-mentioned configuration setting enabled as the default, which causes this error during installation.
If ComponentMoveData had the following error when installing the Documentation CD-ROM (seen on Windows95 and NT):
Media Name: data Component: InstallType\Network\SharedDLL's File Group: Shared 95 DLL's File: G:\Ctl3d32.dll Error Number: -113
then the workaround to this problem is as follows:
The Online Documentation Viewer/Browser (Dynatext) must be installed from the Alliance 1.5 Implementation Tools CD-ROM. In this mode, the Xilinx Books are restricted to being run from the CD-ROM drive with the Xilinx Documentation CD loaded.
If ComponentMoveData produced error number 115 when installing the Implementation Tools CD-ROM (seen on Windows95 and NT), a possible workaround to this problem is to reboot your machine, then immediately rerun the install.
This error takes place because a specific .dll file cannot be installed because it is retained in memory from a previous version of the Xilinx toolset (i.e., - M1.4). Rebooting your machine clears the memory, thus allowing this .dll file to be installed properly.
In some cases where installation of the Implementation Tools fails with this error, cleaning out the TEMP directory prior to installation will fix the problem.
Additionally, it has been seen in Windows95 that if TEMP variables such at these exist in the environment
TEMP = C:\TEMP TMP = C:\TEMP
then removing these references prior to installation should fix the problem.
ComponentMoveData had the following error:
Media Name: data Component: InstallType\Network\SharedDLLs File Group: Shared 95 dlls File: G:\nwlocale.dll Error Number: -115
(NOTE: This issue was fixed in 1.5i release.)
If using the Foundation 1.5 install, the install may stop when trying to copy a file called nwlocale.dll. This DLL is used by Novell networking software, and it may be in use while installing.
1. Reboot into DOS mode. (You can do this when the computer starts up by hitting F8.) This should give you different startup options. Select "Command prompt."
2. Go to c:\windows\system and rename nwlocale.dll. The idea is to make a backup of the .dll file.
3. Type 'win' to go into windows. Novell may try to start, but it will error out because it is looking for the .dll file.
4. Install the software.
5. Delete the nwlocale.dll file that Foundation just installed.
6. Name the old .dll file back to nwlocale.dll.
7. You can safely reboot your computer.
NOTE: You may have to be in DOS mode to do Steps 5 and 6. DO NOT reboot the computer onto the network with the new nwlocale.dll in place. (The nwlocale.dll that Foundation installs is older than the one Novell uses.)
If you find you don't have acces to the CD-ROM in Windows, another workaround is to copy the contents of the CD to the hard drive. Then, reboot into save mode. This will not bring up the network. (The CD-ROM is also diabled, hence the need to copy the contents to the hard drive)
Now run the install from the hard drive. Because there is no network running, nwlocale.dll can be overwritten and the install can proceed.
There have not been any reports of problems caused by replacing the nwlocale.dll from Novell with the foundation install.
Presently, there is no fix when performing a "network install" of the F1.5 tools (i.e., when the nwlocale.dll is in use and cannot be renamed).
If ComponentMoveData had the following error:
ComponentMoveData Error Media Name: DATA Component: xxx/Aldec richedit File Group: file: Error Number: -103
try rebooting the machine, and then re-install.
If you receive the following error while installing the service pack:
Xilinx 1.5 Service Pack Setup. An error occurred during the move data process: -113 Component: new nt files filegroup: new_nt_files file: c:\temp\readme.servicepack
make a copy of the readme.txt file and call it "readme.servicepack." Then rerun the setup.
NOTE: This is ONLY for the Service Pack.
Foundation Series 1.5i install produced a "ComponentMoveData error number 115" with reference to "component move data error media name c:\winnt\system32\drivers\windrvr.sys."
This error is due to the user not having Administrative Rights, which are necessary for the installation software to write files to system directories.
The user should log in as an Administrator (or upgrade user privileges to "Administrator" level) and reinstall the software.
The previous resolutions contained the most commonly listed ComponentMoveData Errors that occur with the Install Shield tool.
If other errors are seen, Install Shield documents the meaning of these errors on their support web site.
