After installing ADX IE 9.0.6121, I generated a new wix setup for my add-on. It ran fine on Win 7. When I tried to install it on Win 8.1, I have got a message: "Installation package canot be open... verify that this is a valid Windows installer package."
My project targets Framework 2.
Please help,
Vladimir Lvov

Hello Vladimir,

I suppose you develop an IE add-on (BHO), IE Toolbar or for-all-users IE Bar. If so, you need to run the installer with elevated permissions. Try starting setup.exe using the "Run as administrator" command.
