    I have recently upgraded my PC from a Windows 2000 Pro to Windows XP home
    machine. The software provided by Nokia to synchronise my handset contents
    does not install on the new machine giving the following error:

    MsiGetProperty Error:
    File: CommonFunctions.rul
    Line: 171

    This appears during an operation to generate scripts.

    Does anyone understand what this error message implies in relation to MSI?

    Nokia are unwilling to help me on the grounds that the only support DELL
    PCs!!!!

    Thanks,

    Paul Swallow.

    MSI is the installer technology. Nokia doesn't know the meaning of support.
    If they cared, they might actually be paying attention to the Nokia forums
    and at least provide indirect responses via their website or improving their
    truly ****ty software. I'm sorry this doesn't help you. But you should call
    them and either ask where it says that only DELL is supported, or just lie
    to them.

    I think I can tell you what it means, but I don't know that it helps.
    MsiGetProperty is an MSI API call. That .rul file means it's an
    InstallShield setup using InstallScript, and the error is at that line
    number in the source file.

    Thanks. I'm trying to track down what the installer is attempting to read at
    this point so that I can narrow down the reason for the conflict on my
    machine.

    Cheers,
