Re: Application Crashing

FYI, I came across the same problem, but was able to get a fix. I'm using Microsoft's Live OneCare for antivirus and I suspect it "intercepted" something on my behalf (PC terminology for it screwed up the install), however I see nothing in the event log. To fix this I followed these steps: 1.) Reboo...

Cosmin, How would you suggest I proceed?

Server-side Serial Validation can't use SSL?

Hi,

Our site has a cert and works fine, but I can't seem to use https://URL/page in the URL. I can use http://URL/page, but not https. It sends it out unencrypted to port 443 (Yes, I've used WireShark to confirm this).

Am I missing something?

Thanks

Access 2003

Hi, I've used the Access 2003 Developer extensions to create an install for an Access application, but frankly it is horrible!!! Is there a way to use Advanced Installer for this? There is an AccessRT.msi, should I be rolling that into the distribution? Is there some notes on this somewhere? Thank y...

Thank you.

Is there any chance that it'll be added to the next version? I mean .INI files are really seriously old school and it only appears to affect the new security policies in Vista, but ... ???

OT: Where to get Code Signing Certificate?

This isn't a common problem of AI, but more of a common problem for deployment. Given the excellent feedback everyone seems to get in here, I figured this would be appropriate place to post this question. Where do you get your code signing certs? Verisign feels that their cert is worth $500/year (of...

Figured it out. It's not that the file is actually marked as read-only, it's that the rights for the group "Users" is set to only "Read" and "Read & Execute". It appears this is the default for any new files in the Program Files folder.

However, I still can't set the security for it from within AI!

Thanks. Is there going to be a way to see/alter that at some point? I mean, what if I wanted to delete it? Edit the .aip?

ShortcutsDlg - Quick Launch Toolbar

I've added the ShortcutsDlg to my Enterprise installation. I've added a shortcut for the desktop and the checkbox in the ShortcutsDlg works great for it. However, I can't seem to figure out where the Quick Launch toolbar shortcut should be. I've looked through the help, but it seems to just say that...

It appears that this is actually only a problem on Windows Vista. The INI file created on Windows XP Pro is not readonly, but when I run the same install on Vista the INI is readonly!

Thanks.

INI file

We have an older program that is still using .INI files. How can we make the .INI file not readonly when it is installed?

If I right-click on a file and select properties, I can make a file not readonly, but if I right click on an INI file, there is no option for this.

Thank you in advance.

You know, this is yet another reason I purchased the Enterprise version of Advanced Installer over competing products (Wise/InstallShield). I love this forum approach and the responses received.

Thank you again.

Probably just the way that I wrote it. Placing the DLL in the begin code made it stop the uninstall as well. Since the DLL checks the date and the properties in the installation, then just displays a dialog (you have expired) on exit. What's a good way of handling this? Is there an execute condition...

Expiration Date / Custom Action DLL / What about uninstall??

I've created a quick DLL in Delphi to validate the expiration (only against the user's clock which they could tweak, but it's a start). In order to do this, I cannot interfere with the UNINSTALL AFTER the expiration date. Right now, I've added the custom action to the event "Begin". This pretty much...
