Logging an event using a powershell custom action

An event can be logged to the MSI logfile using a vbscript custom action:
http://www.advancedinstaller.com/user-g ... ction.html

Does anyone know if this is possible from a Windows Powershell custom action too? And if so, how?

Thanks,

Bart

Security issue with backup copy Web.config.back

When the file Web.config is updated by Advanced Installer, and the option to create a backup file is enabled (recommended), the file Web.config.back is created. Or web.config.1.back if it is already present. A webserver ignores requests for files with the ".config" extension, but requests for files ...

Service Account and trailing spaces

On the Service properties page the Service Account username and password input fields are not trimmed or validated. I used copy/paste to enter the username, but inadvertently copied a trailing space wih it. Of course the installation of the service failed, but it took me almost a day to find out tha...

Error after upgrading to version 8.6

When I open any of my Custom Templates, an Error window pops up with the following text: Malformed control tab-order on dialog: "FatalError". :shock: When I click on "OK" the template opens, but I don't know how to fix this error. This happens since I upgraded from version 8.5 to version 8.6 of Adva...

Advanced Installer Integration

Hi, Thanks for integrating AI with Visual Studio 2010. Suggestion -1- The version of a C# application is located in the file SolutionInfo.cs. It would be a nice feature if AI could optionally check (during build) if this version equals the version as defined within the AI project. Suggestion -2- Sho...

Visual Studio Integration

Hi, Thanks for the integration of AI in Visual Studio 2010. I presume the integration will be pushed to a higher level in the next releases of AI. Bug report -1- The AI viewer/editor page in Visual Studio does not alert you to change the ProductCode when changing the version. :shock: This could lead...

Prevent opening a template file as AI project

Despite our well documented installer procedures, new collegues sometimes misinterpret the idea of an installer template. They copy the template from our central templates location, and use it as starting point for their installer. The result is that the UpgradeCode of the template becomes the Upgra...

Re: Aip files disappear from Solution Items in Visual Studio

The backup project simply gets created next to the main .AIP so there must be another reason behind this behavior. I monitored the creation of the .back.aip file with Process Monitor from SysInternals. When the installer project is saved, the following events show up in the process monitor log: The...

Re: Aip files disappear from Solution Items in Visual Studio

Can you please give us more details about the reason you are including the .AIP into your solution? We like to add every part of our application that must be maintained to the Visual Studio solution.

Aip files disappear from Solution Items in Visual Studio

We include our AI project files as Solution Items in a Visual Studio 2010 Solution folder. When AI creates a .back.aip file, the aip file (sometimes) disappears from the Solution folder. We have to manually add it again. Visual Studio has the same issue with Word and Excel files. The problems occurs...

Prevent remove/add Scheduled Task during Upgrade

How can we prevent that a Scheduled Task is removed and added again during an upgrade. Any settings that were changed by hand after the first install now are lost after an upgrade. :( I noticed there is an Install Condition field, but where is the Uninstall Condition field for the Scheduled Task? :i...
