Disable launch condition

I stupidly enabled the launch condition that allows installer to run only if active internet connection is found. Is there a way to disable this launch condition at run-time?

Thank you for your consideration.

Disable analytics

Is there a client install time switch for disabling Analytics for customers that prefer to protect their privacy? That is, can customers chose to opt out of Installer Analytics reporting at setup run time?

Suggested way to check for registry variable

I need to check for system configuration that allows use of 8.3 file naming on NTFS and emit warning before installation begins. I figure I can check the registry variable, NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation, and post a warning dialog if needed. But, I am unsure how to handle silent installation where war...

EXE spawned via custom action during silent installation

Is there a way to discern if an EXE is launched from a custom action with a silent installation? That is, I launch an EXE through a custom action and I would like the EXE to know if the installer is running in silent mode without having to rebuild the installer. Is there an environment variable or M...

Re: New version strategy

Hi Dan,

Thank you for the response. Unfortunately, I did not have the foresight to enable side by side installs. So, I figure I will start with a new project and ensure this time I enable the switch.

Respectfully,
Fred

New version strategy

To release a new version (that can be concurrently installed with previous version), is it better to start with new project or copy and rename AIP file and change package, update, product codes? I do not want to affect the old version with the new version in any way. If I chose the latter, I think I...

Start folder for shortcuts

I typically specify the start in folder for shortcuts to reference the "My Documents" folder in Advanced Installer. Our software is installed for all users on the machine and if Alice installs the software but Bob launches the software, the shortcut properties list the software to start in Alice's "...

Deploying COM servers (DLLs) from multiple installers

I am trying to figure out a good strategy for deploying a set of registered COM servers (DLLs) that would be included in separate MSI packages. I am pretty sure the servers should be deployed to %ProgramFiles%\Common since I cannot rely on registry free COM and the servers need to be registered on t...

Is there a way to post the user registration dialog with name, company and serial number without enforcing serial number? The only way I can think is to write a DLL that allows any serial number but is there a way to disable serial number checking? I need to write the name, company and serial to spe...
