When you are using Systems Management Server (SMS) Installer Script Editor to assign a temporary file name (Get Temporary Filename into
variablename), the generated SMS Installer program can cause an "Access violation" error message similar to:
This behavior can occur if the Get Temporary Filename script action is used within a loop. For example, the following sample script generates the error message:
Set Variable COUNT to 1 While COUNT Not Equal 200 do Get Temporary Filename into MYFILE Set variable COUNT to %COUNT% (Increment) End Block
For small loop iterations (less than 130), the problem does not occur.
Do not use the Get Temporary Filename script action in a loop that is likely to iterate beyond 130 times.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Systems Management Server Installer version 2.0.91.
