Re: Windows Service properties during product upgrade

Just a follow up. It seems this doesn't work. Even making suggested changes, installer overwrites custom settings on a service.

Custom APPDATA path when CurrentUser installation option is chosen

I'm building an x64-only installer with extra InstallTypeDlg dialog where user can choose installation type. What I can't figure out is how to specify custom path to APPDATA variable. To me it defaults to somewhere in %AppData% which is not the right folder in my case. The idea I want to implement i...

Re: Windows Service properties during product upgrade

Thanks Catalin,
sorry for late response. Your answer confirms my concern.
I'd say we could have a custom action that removes the service only during uninstall.
but won't this action execute during upgrade and cause same effect -- service is removed and all custom settings are gone as well?

Error openin file while creating CAB

I'm trying to build another installer for my software and facing this issue: when building, AI complains that it cannot open XML and TXT files. Previously (I'm using the same project file) build worked very well without issues, but now it doesn't work. I can confirm that files are available and are ...

Re: Custom MSI switch

sounds good. Is there a way to rename this checkbox to some user-friendly name? I see, there are multiple references to checkbox name.

Custom MSI switch

In the MSI dialog manager I modified FolderDlg by adding a checkbox there. If checkbox is unchecked, default path is used, when checked -- an alternate path is used. I created corresponding events, so in GUI it works. The question is: is there a way to attach a command-line switch, so end user can s...

Re: MSI signing with smart card -- too many prompts

If your certificate file doesn't have a password, then this option will be hidden There is no password, because the certificate is stored on smart card, rather than PKCS#12/PFX file. Starting with version 11.2 of Advanced Installer we have added an improvement so that multiple files can be signed a...

Re: MSI signing with smart card -- too many prompts

Sorry for delayed response.

No, I can't enable this option as it is not showing in the Digital Signature page. I'm using AI 10,9. Maybe, it was added to newer versions?

MSI signing with smart card -- too many prompts

I'm using a signing certificate (from digicert) which is stored on a smart card. When I create and build an MSI I'm receiving too many PIN prompts for smart card during the single build. It can be more than 10 prompts (depending on a binary files count in the project) at the time, it is way annoying.

Re: Add published events (dialog editor)

Yes, I'm concerning on installation paths only. I've decided to use only per-machine installs (and request elevation if necessary), so only administrators can install it and my solution is sufficient for me.

Re: Add published events (dialog editor)

First of all, you should know that Advanced Installer offers you a predefined dialog from which the user can select the install type, you can simply add it from our list of predefined ones yep. However I was unable to figure how it works and how do I specify the path depending on active radiobutton...

Add published events (dialog editor)

I'm looking to slightly imporove user experience with installation paths depending on setup type (for all users or current users). I've started with dialogs — edited FolderDlg by adding 2 radiobuttons (choice — install for current user or for all users). Default value is AllUsers. My thought is to a...
