'Null' is null or not an object Error


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi there

I use WIN XP X86 SP3 and WPI V8.1.0.

After I added some commands and programs to WPI in Version 8.0.3, I got this error and WPI doesn't continue installing the programs until I hit "OK".

And then other programs continue installing when "Installer Window" is not visable.

After finishing all the programs without seeing "installer window"

1. Desktop doesn't load when installing on a new windows OS.

2. Shut down/Restart command at the end of all programs doesn't work.

3. WPI is still in the list of process.

If I End Task "WPI.EXE" from the Windows Task Manager manually, then desktop loads.

This is a screen shot of the error.

What's wrong?

Questions:

1. IS there a AV installed?

2. Your screenies don't look "Stock" how

3. have you modified your OS?

1. No, I haven't installed any Anti Virus before this error occurs.

This error happens just before installation of ESET Smart Security installation because AV is my last program which is installed.

2. Unfortunately I didn't know what you meant "Stock" but I have taken this photo by my mobile phone camera because desktop was not loaded and Print Screen key didn't work.

3. Yes,I have modified my Win XP and I have used different versions of WPI on this modified windows for more than one year without any problem. When I added some programs and commands to WPI and also updated to v.8.0.3 at the same time, this error occurred.

Also when I install another version of WIN XP and after finishing OS installation, I use WPI, again this error happens.

Hi again,

I think I found the reason of error but now how can I solve it?

I use Office 2007 silent install which is made by Lee - as I see it when extracting the files to the hard drive.

I think this is the reason of error because when I don't tick it in WPI, everything is OK and no error occurs.

Also first I installed the above version of office and then I run WPI without installation of office, no error occurred.

What can I do now?

Should I put the office in the last order or ...?

Thanks

How is made your Office 2007 archive (made by Lee!!) ?

You need to use your personnal copy and your valid key for Office 2007!

You can expand the archive an check your "config.xml" file !

Why do you use the switch: Office.exe /S ?

*Edit: Please don't double post

I didn't know how to make my silent installer so I used a ready package.

I install windows XP and some softwares including office 2007 in an unattended process.

This is the command which is in office.rar package file:


Setup=install.cmd
TempMode
Silent=2
Overwrite=1

And the config file which exists in Enterprise.WW folder when I extract the package is like this:


- <Configuration Product="Enterprise">
- <!-- <Display Level="full" CompletionNotice="yes" SuppressModal="no" AcceptEula="no" />
-->
- <!-- <Logging Type="standard" Path="%temp%" Template="Microsoft Office Enterprise Setup(*).txt" />
-->
- <!-- <PIDKEY Value="***********************************" />
-->
- <!-- <USERNAME Value="Customer" />
-->
- <!-- <COMPANYNAME Value="MyCompany" />
-->
- <!-- <INSTALLLOCATION Value="%programfiles%\Microsoft Office" />
-->
- <!-- <LIS CACHEACTION="CacheOnly" />
-->
- <!-- <SOURCELIST Value="\\server1\share\Office12;\\server2\share\Office12" />
-->
- <!-- <DistributionPoint Location="\\server\share\Office12" />
-->
- <!-- <OptionState Id="OptionID" State="absent" Children="force" />
-->
- <!-- <Setting Id="Reboot" Value="IfNeeded" />
-->
- <!-- <Command Path="msiexec.exe" Args="/i \\server\share\my.msi" QuietArg="/q" ChainPosition="after" Execute="install" />
-->
</Configuration>

Also there are two batch files in the root of the folder

1.install.cmd


@echo off
title Installing office '07

echo please be patient as this could take every long...

echo.
echo starting installer...
start /wait setup.exe

and

2.sdsd.cmd


start setup.exe /admin

P.S: Sorry for double posting, when I found out that office causes the error, I thought it was a new subject related to Office 2007

Hello!

You can create yourself the SFX file for Office 2007 Enterprise and read how to here:

Examples:

how to unnatended office 2010 and make it lite?

You must add the correct values inside "config.xml" and set your valid key!

<Configuration Product="Enterprise">

<Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" />

<Logging Type="standard" Path="%temp%" Template="Microsoft Office Enterprise Setup(*).txt" />

<PIDKEY Value="XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX" />

<USERNAME Value="Full name" />

<USERINITIALS Value="Customer Initials" />

<COMPANYNAME Value="MyCompany" />

<INSTALLLOCATION Value="%programfiles%\Microsoft Office" />

<!-- <LIS CACHEACTION="CacheOnly" /> -->

<!-- <SOURCELIST Value="\\server1\share\Office12;\\server2\share\Office12" /> -->

<!-- <DistributionPoint Location="\\server\share\Office12" /> -->

<!-- <OptionState Id="OptionID" State="absent" Children="force" /> -->

<!-- <SetupUpdates CheckForSUpdates="Yes" SUpdateLocation=".\updates" /> -->

<Setting Id="SETUP_REBOOT" Value="Never" />

<Command Path="msiexec.exe" Args="/i .\Enterprise.WW\EnterpriseWW.msi" QuietArg="/qn" ChainPosition="after" Execute="install" />

</Configuration>

You can find help about config.xml for Office 2007 here:

Config.xml file in the 2007 Office system

*Edit:

You can download the file OFFICE14_distribuable.rar

Updated for Office 2007 Enterprise. And all the files you need are inside Office 2007 Enterprise

Fist you need to install 7zip on your computer!

Check if the folder EnterpriseWW.msi is correct because I haven't this version of Office!
