Error 2350 : FDI.Server Error

    We have a package failing to install on most of the machines with error code : 2350 (FDI.Server Error). Has anyone ever received this error?

    I googled about it and got very less information on this which also did not helped much. Only thing I could get is the issue is with Windows Installer. But unsure, how would we fix it.

    Attached is the error msg for reference.

    Any help / suggestions / guidance would be great.

    msiexec.ex e /i <msiname.msi> /qn /l*v "%temp%\seavus.log"

    And see what the log says. Use a tool like Orca to examine the msi file too, that error message loooks like one the MSI package has created, you may be able to find a condition that's failing. Does Seavus use an FDI server the package can't find or hasn't been told where to find?

    Did you try repairing or reinstalling Windows Installer, if that's what you found online?

    I hadn't seen this before, and Google just says it's an .msi or .cab error, such as a missing or corrupt file.  Are you sure all of the files are good?  What's different between this package you just created and how you normally install this application?  Surely a file was left behind, a command line changed, etc.

    Thanks for replies guys...


    Log file says file is missing... However, cab file is present in the package..

    For MSI, I am unsure if that will actually work.. coz there are other msi installs which are running just fine with no errors.

    Also, this package is a global distribution and I have almost 50% - 60% machines executed successfully... Few of them are still not run and remaining have failed.. Mostly with error code 1602 / 1603...

    Upon investigation : 1602 - User cancels install... Remotely checked on one of the machines... when we get a fail error msg (screenshot in first post), user hit ok / cancel to stop / terminate the install... I feel this is the point where we have 1602 return code...

    1603 - Fatal error during install... Not sure for the reason.. but probably could be a part of failure error msg...


    Anything else that can be checked???

    use msiexec /qn, quiet and no user interface.

    Compare the log file from a good install with a failed one. Perhaps you are short of disk space so is not extracted, but you should be able to see where a good and failed install diverge.

    I set most installs to run by Policy, 12:30 daily compliance check. If it's already installed nothing happens, if the user cancelled last time it will try again. Or if it fails.
