Re: How do I determine if an inline powershell script has been blocked or simply failed

Hi, Scripts (PS or VBS) have a history with being blocked either by antiviruses or other group policy management solutions. My recommendation would be to re-write your code into a C# custom action . This way you will end up with a DLL as custom action which should save you from all the headaches of ...

Re: How to fix Headless app from .exe to .appx

Hi,

The solution to fix the HeadlessAppBypass error is to add an appAlias for your console app in the Declarations page from your Advanced Installer project.

Re: Problem creating registry key with MSIX installer

Hi Robert, Please note that the registry you put inside an MSIX package are only visible to your app, not for the rest of the apps or the OS. With this in mind, the Run key is useless for what you want to do. The solution is to go to Declarations page and add an app declaration for a startup task, a...

Re: Upgrade appx version using advanced installer by creating a backup and then restoring from it

Hi Rachit, For APPX/MSIX packages the app user data is migrated/preserved automatically by the OS when you install a new version of the package, as long as the new version has the same package identity (eg/ " YourApplication.YourCompany ") as the old version. All you have to do is to run the new APP...

Re: Symantec endpoint risk issue

Hi, re you seriously suggesting that "trying the latest" version might fix the problem? Since the AV vendors change their heuristics daily, sometimes this helps, just as you can see in the initial messages from this thread. We do not guarantee that an upgrade to the latest version will fix your vers...

Re: The handle is in the wrong state for the requested operation

It does not matter on what OS you're running the server. As long as your server knows to handle correctly HTTP/HTTPs request correctly the updater will work with it. To test it place your updates file URL in a browser, if the browser can load the file from your server, then the updater should be abl...

Re: Update Config Project: CommandLine field is not working -> makes the installation unsuccessful

Hi Zsolt, Indeed, the command line you are passing in the updater is correctly passed to the installer, the updater is not at fault for the error. You see the error in the updater dialog because you are incorrectly using the property REMOVE. Thus the detection criteria of the updater gives the error...

Re: Label not Visible on dark Background without bootstrap

Hi Eric,

Try using Process monitor to see where that setting is saved in the OS and then replicate it into a setup project.

Usually such settings are stored in the registry.

Re: Customize Themes

Hi and welcome to our forums,

Customizing themes requires access to our Dialogs Editor feature, from the Enterprise edition.

Thus, the option is available only in the Enterprise and Architect projects, for the currently selected theme.

Re: AI_ExePath - delete it?

Hi and welcome to our forums,

This component is used by the setup package, you should not delete it.

Just move it (drag and drop) to another feature from that package that always gets installed.

Re: Setting permitions for different language versions of Windows fails

Hi Kira,

We now automatically localize the most used user/group accounts, so you can use the property corespondent to the targeted user/group from the linked article.

I believe the property GRP_NETWORK_CONFIGURATION_OPS is the one you should be using.

Best regards,
