Extended Search - Product Version by Upgrade Code

We have a project that is doing searches for Visual Studio 2017 C++ Redistributables, since microsoft has split the product into two separate installers we made two searches (VC Redist additional and VC Redist minimum). The property names we used are VERSIONCOMPARE.VC14REDIST_ADDITIONAL and VERSIONC...

Re: Sign installer after creation

Hello Korr, Sure. Please let me know the results of the investigation. All the best, Catalin The AIPs that we manually modified the CreateVersion return an Installation Successful in the logs, however they do not actually perform any of their actions... this maybe the silent failure you're talking ...

Re: Sign installer after creation

From what I know, in the older versions, we would fail the installation, but without displaying any error messages (silently). I will double check with my team and my own logs (to see what actions happened), however I recall that the MSI when logged would still report "Installation Successful", and...

Re: Sign installer after creation

I'm curious what the CreateVersion of your AIP file is? It's 12.5.1 for me. If my understanding is correct, it's the version of the Advanced installer using which the project was created for the very first time. Thats my understanding as well. I was hoping maybe that would be part of the reason beh...

Re: Sign installer after creation

While trying to look into this issue more, I noticed we have installers that _DON'T_ exhibit this behavior, even when they are very similar in architecture... the only difference I have been able to come up with is the CreateVersion in the AIP file. The failing product has a CreateVersion of 8.6 The...

Re: Update schould advice before overwritting files

It would take some logic in a few areas but it should be doable, assuming that you're talking about some general appSettings/ConnectionString/etc items that would have known default values. (if this includes custom runtime bindings that you wouldnt necessarily know about or similar you'd need to hav...

Re: Reboot required after mssql install

As I said mssql after installation return not 0 code. And this confused user about wether installation process finished successful or not. It showz to user error that prerequisites was setup incorrect. How to handle it, I still don't understand. In the Prerequisites, select your package : Propertie...

Re: Silent Prerequisite for Octopus Deploy Tentacle MSI

The 13.4 "framework" gets translated to "pre-install" when opening in 15.7 I tested your Pre-requisite and Main AIP files you provided and didnt have any issues installing them, using as-is I got the bootstrapper pre-requisite page and showed It was going to install the Prerequisite MSI and did... s...

Re: Silent Prerequisite for Octopus Deploy Tentacle MSI

I believe the framework option is mostly for the sequencing, but in the Prerequisites page there is a "Frameworks" option. Its not present in my 12.4.2 installation, but it is there for 13.4 (and presumably onward from there). Inn the Setup Files tab, under the Install Command Lines section we have ...

Re: Installing .msi on a specific system results in error.

I've ran into similar issues when the global environment variable %TEMP% is specified to a folder (ie: c:\env\temp) and the user has the generic userdata location (as you see in the pictures). The MSI will extract the files to the global temp (C:\env\temp\***.msi) but check the user temp (c:\users\m...

Re: Reboot required after mssql install

I think you should start with the "Reboot" part below and then maybe try the "Failing install" if that doesnt work. Reboot - If you've added the SQL install as a pre-requisite, it should have an Options section in the Properties tab of that pre-requisite with the option to "Reboot system after insta...

Re: help understanding (failed) install log?

When I look at a failed MSI log for the first time I search for the first instance of 'value 3', which should be the first time that the error happens (which can get passed 'up the execution chain' to show again). When you find the first instance of value 3, you want to look at the previous 10-20 li...

Re: Silent Prerequisite for Octopus Deploy Tentacle MSI

The Octopus Tentacle MSI is expecting "/quiet" (not "/qn", for what its worth)for its silent install commandline option. (Which worked for our team installing as a framework)

Re: Sign installer after creation

This only works if you append a new signature to the EXE, you cannot replace it. This means we would have a test certificate signature going out on our EXEs labeled by the machine that built it, which may (and likely is) not be acceptable for all of our customers. For my issue of not being able to u...
