can you call a powershell inline script from another inline script

I have written several powershell custom actions, as inline script without sequence, and have called them from various places in the install with no problems. Is it possible to call 1 of these inline powershell scripts from another one? I don't seem to be able to get it to work. If it can be done, i...

Re: installer crash after enter invalid path and cancel

I have attached my trivial sample .aip file which illustrates the back/cancel button validation of folder path issue described in my earlier post.

Re: installer crash after enter invalid path and cancel

It is easy to create a repro of the validation issue . I just created a new enterprise installer project using AI 12.3.1, saved it , ran it, got to the Select Installation Folder, entered a bad path, and pressed back or cancel - you can see that it performs validation of the path, even though no suc...

Re: installer crash after enter invalid path and cancel

The Cancel button the FolderDlg has an associated event 'Display a specific child dialog', the CancelDlg. And if the path in the editbox is valid, that is what appears when you press cancel. But if the path in the edit box is invalid, then it seems to wait a while, then report "the specified path 'x...

installer crash after enter invalid path and cancel

In some cases, one of our install packages crashes if the user , when presented with the standard 'Select Installation Folder' page, enters an invalid path (e.g. "abcde" - something which leads to install error 1314 "the specified path 'abcde' is unavailable") then presses the Cancel button. - a dia...

not polssible to add a merge module inside another merge module

It does not seem possible to embed one merge module within another. I had been able to do this with Visual Studio setups. It means, for example, that if a component in my merge module has a dependency on say the Visual Studio Runtime, I cannot add the appropriate VS merge module to it. So my merge m...

Group Policy problem with custom actions

Using AI 11.4.1, I have developed a test install version 1.0, which delivers 1 file, and has an install/uninstall managed custom action (which just sets a value in the registry). I have also developed a version 1.1, which does the same, except that the custom action is in a different assembly. Both ...

Re: merge module signature

The old Visual Studio Setup and Deployment project disappeared after VS2010; I just tried in VS2012 and it gave me instructions on how to enable installshield limited edition. So whatever you used is different from what our original VS setup projects were developed with. So I guess the answer to my ...

Re: merge module signature

Using a new VS2010 merge module setup project to create a dummy merge module, and looking at the output merge module using Orca, I don't get the module id format you do. Mine is still without the underscores.

merge module signature

I have developed a merge module using AI 11.4.1 to replace an existing Visual Studio merge module. I didn't use the conversion tool when developing this new merge module. I now realise I would like it to keep the same 'signature' as the old one. i.e. to appear to be a newer version of the same merge...

Re: launch condition to check if a build number is bigger than a certain value

The trick is to press the shift key down, then drag the custom action from the dialog stage to the execution stage or vice-versa, to get a copy in both areas.
thanks to Dan for that tip.

Re: launch condition to check if a build number is bigger than a certain value

Could you just tell me how you created your ExecuteInlineScript custom action so that it appears in both the Wizard Dialogs Stage list and also the Install Execution Stage list ? when I try to add this custom action to my existing project, it appears under one or the other, but not both. thanks
