We have K-Lite Codec Pack installed on some computers in our environment. Secunia has identified "Media Player Classic 6.x" as a discontinued product within the pack. The more recent versions of K-Lite have the new Media Player Classic - Home Cinema bundled. The solution here would be to install a newer version of K-Lite which would replace the older Media Player Classic. The problem is that CSI will not allow me to create a package for anything with a product version of "Product Discontinued".
The following information is written to the log file when I attempt to create the package:
[05/24 08:06:17.535] Failed to create update: : 1 , Cannot create installable rule, reason (e)
[05/24 08:06:17.536] Exception when creating update: : -2146823281 , Unable to set value of the property 'message': object is null or undefined
Another solution would be to correctly identify this a being bundled with the K-Lite Codec Pack installation instead of a standalone application.
The K-Lite version and installation path can be gathered from the following registry key:
The installed components can be gather from:
(Older versions) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\KLCodecPack\Components
(Newer versions) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\KLCodecPack\InstalledI
