How to set up for six months

I was told when I renewed maintenance that any purchase would include a free 6 month subscription to Analytics. I'm only seeing an option for a free 2 months when I create an account. How do I go about getting the full 6 months? FWIW: I didn't complete the process of creating an analytics account as...

Signed Installer is reporting as unknown publisher

I have an installer project that I’ve been using for years. The installer is configured to sign a package with a code signing cert. I just found that a couple of months ago, when installing windows warns it’s from an unknown publisher. What's further odd about it, when looking at the properties of t...

Different behavior based on version upgrading

I need my installer to behave differently based on the version that it is upgrading. The installer will encounter one of three scenarios. A first time install, upgrade against the current major version, or upgrade against previous major version. The previous installer I wrote wasn't difficult becaus...

Re: Update references in .Net project

I have an installer project that builds an application written in Visual Studio, but the installer is not integrated to visual studio - i run it seperately. The way the installer was created originally was to migrate a deployment project. Now that I have released that version, I want to release an u...

Update references in .Net project

I am working with a .Net setup project that I need to update the references. I use a set of third party controls in the development, and when they issue an update, it will change quite a number of references in my solution. (This is the DevExpress set of controls) Is there a way to have Advances Ins...

Re: Customize Graphic displays for prerequisite

I've found where this is done. It is in the Dialogs view. (I had looked there but missed it)

To change grapics:
Dialog view -> expand "EXE bootstrapper" at the top.
Select Bootstrapper UI
Change images in the last two items on right hand pane.

Re: Hide label if anything other than upgrade

Thanks for the suggestion --- i got it working now. Wanted to post back with the solution i came up with in case anyone else finds this thread and has the same issue. I defined two seperate custom actions. Both set the label to "hide" in the action. One is "NOT OLDPRODUCTS". The other is a predefine...

Hide label if anything other than upgrade

I have a label on the Exit Dialog that I only want to have visible only if an upgrade is being performed. Using the ControlConditions - i've successfully added a condition of "not installed" and an action of "hide" - this works as expected. The issue is the exit dialog is also called on uninstall - ...

Improve editing of long label text

When creating custom dialogs, I have a few labels that have text that would be easier to enter into a multi-line text edit box. Attached is a screen shot of the form from AI where I enter the text now. What I end up doing is preparing the text in another program - either notepad or even Word if I wa...
