Re: Temporary files missing in quiet mode

Hi Catalin, Thank you for your invaluable help! It was spot on. I had made the mistake to put my custom action before CostFinalize. I moved my custom action after CostFinalize and it started working. Is there any documentation regarding the different standard actions and what they do (for example wh...

Temporary files missing in quiet mode

Hi! My installer uses the Temporary folder to house a file called InstallSQL.sql which is used by a custom action during the install execution stage. This all works fine when running the installer in full UI mode, but when I switch to quiet mode (using the /quiet flag) this file is no longer found i...

Jump over dialogs based on install parameter

Hi! My installer sometimes needs a reboot to be able to continue. Currently I'm using the RunOnce registry key to run my installer with a RESUME="True" parameter passed to the installer. After reboot when my installer starts I would like to jump over all the dialogs and go directly to the VerifyRead...

Re: .NET Core IIS Hosting

Hi Catalin,

World class support as always. Thanks! A follow up on this. If I need to restart the IIS (I have a custom action for it) after .NET Core Hosting has been finished installing at what point would I invoke that CA?

.NET Core IIS Hosting

Hi, My installer installs .NET Framework 4.7.2 as a pre-install and also sets up Windows Server Roles and Features. Now I also need to add .NET Core IIS Hosting. But this package requires that the IIS is already set up before installing. Adding .NET Core IIS Hosting to Pre-Install will not work, ins...

Re: Scheduled task that starts immediately and repeats

Hi Catalin,

Thank you for your reply. I forgot to mention that the task should run regardless if the user is logged in or not. I noticed this script only runs when a user is logged in.

Scheduled task that starts immediately and repeats

Hi,

How can I, using AI, create a scheduled task that starts after the installation has finished and repeats every 10 minutes and goes on forever? I can manually set this up in Windows but not sure how to do it through AI.

Quick launch shortcut not visible

Hi,

My installer sets a quick launch shortcut to my application. It works on all OSes except on Windows Server 2019. Why is this? Is this a bug in AI or does it need to be created differently?

Re: Always install prerequisite doesn't work

Hi, I need to retract from my previous statement that it doesn't seem to work. When forcing the installation the actual prereq installer itself is the one that detects that a newer version already is installed and hence aborts the installation of a lower version. So it's outside of AI. I'll let you ...

Re: Action data maximum length?

Hmmm... I found it. My bad. Incorrect way: string actionData = session.CustomActionData.ToString(); Correct way: string actionData = session["CustomActionData"]; They will differ. The incorrect way will treat the whole string as key/value and omit duplicate ones. Took me some hours to figure this ou...

Re: Action data maximum length?

Hi Catalin, Thank you for your reply. I think I have found the issue. The action data I pass to my custom action looks simplified like this: [PARAM_1]|[PARAM_2]|[PARAM_3]|[PARAM_4]|[PARAM_5] In the custom action I get the string like so: string customData = session.CustomActionData.ToString(); Each ...
