View Full Version : 0 Byte File Problem
28th May 2008, 00:11
I have a very strange and annoying problem. Everytime i now compile a nsi file i get a 0 byte file and i cannot remove it from my computer! Help :cry:

Is the 0 byte file suppose to be the compiled executable? Does this happens with all nsi files? And does the compiler give any errors?

It happens with all files i try to compile and when the compilation process is taking place it doesnt go further than the first compiler.

Can't this be some kind of antivirus software issue? Try to turn off it and tell us, what happened.
Installation log would be helpful too.

It seemed to have been a registry problem.. i did a system restore and it fixed the problem. The problem occured with a older version of my installer that i wrote and compiled, when i compiled new ones it would put out a 0 byte file but with the name of the old installer. Where do i find the log your looking for ?
Edit* After i did the system restore and edited my old installer this problem happened yet again!... anyone know what could be the problem?

Sorry, I meant compile log. That's the scrolling text that you see when compiling.

Ok i have uploaded the compile log, if you see the problem please let me know because this problem is stopping me from completing other projects as well. When i compile my scripts i use the "Best Compressor" option but when it starts the compile it doesnt go further than zlib compiler.

Doesn't help having a : in the file name. That isn't allowed but may not be the problem.
