Invalid cab dependency URL

The URL for a Web dependency contains non-ASCII characters. Windows Installer cannot evaluate non-ASCII characters; only ASCII characters in the range 0 to 127 are allowed.

To correct this error

  1. Select the Cab project in Solution Explorer.

  2. In the Properties window, select the WebDependencies property. Click the ellipsis (...) button to open the Web Dependencies dialog box.

  3. In the Web Dependencies dialog box, select the dependency referenced in the error message and click the Edit button.

  4. Select the URL field, and replace any non-ASCII characters with ASCII characters in the range 0 to 127.


    The URL is not validated for proper format, only for invalid characters.
