Very slow build time

Recently upgraded an old AI project from AI 7 to AI 12.3 then to AI 13.5. Post upgrade the build times have increased to 10x. Earlier (7.2 and 12.3) it used to take around 3 mins to build now it is taking 40 mins. Same PC, same files, etc. Thinking something to do with the signing of the application...

Re: Windows 8 App Cert Kit Test Failed

The trick did not work for me. Had to upgrade to 9.1 and then check that override box specifying Custom Name as [ProgramName].

Re: Windows 8 App Cert Kit Test Failed

This specific app we never upgraded the AI solution. It is on 7.5.2. I do not see the Override checkbox on the Product Details page. Can you tell me how to add those entries maybe manually to the table editor? Though we do have other projects that are using the AI 9.x. So far have not run them throu...

Re: Upgrading Per-User/Per-Machine from a Per-Machine app

Hi,

Tried both 'Preserve Install Type of the old version' and 'Uninstall prior versions' but neither worked for me. App2 does not un-install App1 if App1 was installed by user.

Any other ideas or suggestions?

Thanks

Re: Upgrading Per-User/Per-Machine from a Per-Machine app

As per this link http://www.advancedinstaller.com/user-guide/install-parameters.html does not look like what I am asking is allowed. How about I create a third app3 installer that is per-user. Then add the App3 as a pre-req to the app2? so that way the remove for app1 first runs as remove per-user a...

How to Sign Office 2007 plugin

What is the correct way to use Advanced Installer to digitally sign an Office 2007 Add-In. When installing the plugin we get the message 'Publisher cannot be verified'. We have written an Office 2007 Add-In using Visual Studio 2010/.NET 3.5 SP1/VB.NET. The output that VS2010 creates (.vsto, .manifes...

Re: UpgradeCode question

Hi Bogdan,

Was able to write a vbscript that copies the file over and added it to the Install (verify dialog) subscribed events as a DoAction. So did not have to mess with the other events, etc.

Thanks!

Re: UpgradeCode question

The problem is that the upgrade of the 64 bit package from the 32 bit one is not possible. As such since the first installer is already deployed changing it will be no good. But I can find that file(C:\Program Files (x86)\DocumentVision 2010 Pro Server\KillDVProcesses.exe). Is there anyway in the n...
