Issue Details

While building a custom installer using the NI Batch Installer Builder I get the following error message:

Build Failure: An unexpected error occurred while building batch installer

Upon checking the build logs for more information I see the following error:

ERROR: Checksum verification failed for Distribution volume at: C:\...


If you are receiving the above errors try the following troubleshooting steps:
  • Try building a batch¬†installer with only 1 source installer. If the build still fails, try building an installer with every source installer desired, one at a time, to see if any of the installers will build successfully.
  • If you are using source installers from DVD's or other media,¬†try downloading all of the desired installers from our website and using them in your build.
  • Try reinstalling NI Batch Installer Builder.
If none of these steps works, it is recommended that you contact NI support for more information.
