SOLVED: Powershell Inline works for system32 GUI apps but not console apps

This is a weird one. I need to run a small Powershell inline script that does some stuff and then calls pnputil.exe. My inline script works fine when run from a PS prompt. When I compile and run my setup, it fails and does a rollback. The log says file not found for pnputil.exe. During debugging, I ...

Re: New 16.0 build crashed on startup.

Thanks for all the feedback...

I ended up uninstalling, cleaning up the ProgramData folder which had a million old AI folders in it and then reinstalling.

New 16.0 build crashed on startup.

I've been using Advanced Installer on my build workstation for literally years. Today I installed the 16.0 upgrade, and now when I run it I get: [SEH_GENERIC] Unknown SEH Exception (0xc06d007e) at address [0x758fc762] Advanced Installer 16.0 build b004008e *** Stack Trace (x86) *** [0x758fc762] Rais...

Re: 'File -> Open' file browser shows wrong file dates

Yes, thank you for that. I did find this quite surprising since the default Windows Explorer behaviour is to show the Last Modified date, not File Creation date.

'File -> Open' file browser shows wrong file dates

When I browse for a specific AIP file, it shows File Creation date for the file instead of Last Modified. For example, I made edits today and saved it. When I look in Explorer, it correctly shows the file having a timestamp of today. When I click File - Open in Advanced Installer, it shows a very in...

Re: RAM prereq fails with Windows Server 2019 on VMware Workstation

The problem happens with both Windows Server 2016 and 2019. I was specifically talking about VMware Workstation 15. When I saw your screen, I recognized the vSphere client, and it works with WS2016/2019 when running under ESXi. It only fails under VMware Workstation.

Re: RAM prereq fails with Windows Server 2019 on VMware Workstation

My mistake. It wasn't a Prerequisite, it was a Launch Condition. You can check this by creating a simple setup that installs nothing. Make a mixed 32/64 setup. Add nothing to it. Add a Launch Condition of Physical Memory 4096 MB. Save & compile. Setup will run on Windows Server 2012R2 VM with 4 ...

RAM prereq fails with Windows Server 2019 on VMware Workstation

I have a setup that I've been using for years. It has a Prereq check for physical memory of 4 GB minimum. I have several testing virtual machines running on VMware Workstation 15.0.2. Each VM has 4 GB RAM allotted to them. Setup has worked with Windows Server 2008 - 2016 without any problems. With W...

Re: Makepri.exe errors

Thanks for all the responses... I fixed the issue by entirely removing Tile support from my project, since it was the tiles that required makepri in the first place. This isn't a great solution since I like the tiles and they've been in my project for at least a year now, but I need to ship our prod...

Makepri.exe errors

We've been using AI for years. Or project compiles just fine. We upgraded from 14.9 to 15.0 a week or two ago and immediately started getting the following errors during a build: Checking builds status Build required.

Has anyone managed to get Tiles working??

I'm trying to get tiles working for my application. I've read the Help and watched the video, but no matter what I do I cannot get a tile to appear on my test boxes (2012R2, 2016). I create the shortcuts via Files and Folders, Target Computer - Application Shortcut Folder, Start Menu and Programs. C...

How to modify existing but disabled firewall rule?

I have a situation where I need to change the status of an existing Windows Firewall rule. The Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI-In) and (WMI-Out) are existing rules but disabled. I want to enable them without adding a new rule. I can't see a way to change an existing system rule or even add a...
