Hi there,
I have noticed some 1622 erros when trying to install 7Zip from the Software Center. Investigating it I have found the issue. When looking in the CCMCache the Package.xml refers to an E: drive, as below...

<CommandLine>/MainFile=7z1900-x64.msi├┐"/MainArg=ALLUSERS=1 MSIRMSHUTDOWN=2 REBOOT=ReallySuppress"├┐/SkipProcessList=7zFM.exe|7zG.exe|7z.exe├┐/ShortcutFileName=7-Zip├┐"/LoggingSwitch=/l {path}"├┐/PrefixInstallLog├┐/LoggingPath=E:\PatchMyPCInstallLogs</CommandLine>

If I change it to C: and run 'PatchMyPC-ScriptRunner.exe /InstallPackage' from an elevated command prompt it installs fine with no issues.
So I checked the source and it is C:. I'm confused, was this a mistake that was fixed or is something else going on here? I have redistributed the application and it now works!

Can you check the right click option in the Patch My PC Publisher and see what you have set for the logging path there? https://patchmypc.com/custom-options-available-for-third-party-updates-and-applications#install-logging


It is set to C:\windows\ccm\logs\PatchMyPCInstallLogs
