Re: How to repackage on remote computer

Hi, You can simply install Advanced Installer in trial mode on your target machine and perform a capture there. The repackager doesn't need a license in order for it to capture. The .rpk file generated on the target contains the capture results. You can then import the .rpk file back into your Advan...

Re: Issue with Surface theme on MSP patch

Hi, The Surface theme was never designed to be supported without Enhanced UI. The issue here is actually that msi patches are not yet supported by Enhanced UI, so the Surface theme gets launched without Enhanced UI. I have added an improvement on our TODO list to support this. In the meantime, if yo...

Re: Updater License Check

Hi Norm, I have already replied to your question via email. For posterity, here is the answer: The version field is the updater's version indeed. To retrieve the version of your application, you could encode the version as part of the licenseid when storing it in the registry. Then, serverside, pars...

Re: Cannot add dll to project

Hello Sacha, Indeed that was what I referred to when I said "file sequence". Since you did not find any duplicate sequences in the aip, best thing to do is send us the .aip project file along with a detailed description of the steps to reproduce your issue to support at advancedinstaller dot com , s...

Re: "Call Function From Stardard DLL" in UI sequence

Hello, An alternative solution would be: - under UI Custom Actions, add a new attached custom action, and select "<AI_CUSTACTS>stdDllWrapper.dll" as the dll, where <AI_CUSTACTS> is the path variable containing the path to the folder in which stdDllWrapper.dll resides - add the custom action where yo...

Re: Patch fails with "Error reading from file"

Hello, Are there any custom actions using the "CDI.IndexCard.dll" file? If so, the file does not exist at the time the custom action tries to access it. Other than that, I'm not sure what the issue could be. Could you send us a sample project (including any project dependencies) to support at advanc...

Re: msgbox localization - aicustact.dll uses OS locale

Hello,

I am afraid the message box you are referring to is displayed by Windows Installer. We will be adding improvements to the Message Box custom action to support buttons localization.

Hi Ramon,

- On the custom actions page, right click->New Attached Custom Action.
- Select your VB file.
- once added to the list, you will find the "Deferred with no impersonation" option in the right pane, under the Execution Options section.

Re: Opening ReadMe file after GPO install

Hello,

The installer is running silently during a GPO install. No user interface is displayed during this time.
You can try creating a Launch File or Open URL custom action that will run at the end of the installation and will launch the rtf file.

Best regards,
Gabriel
