Re: IIS: Windows Feature or Server Role?

I am apparently not asking the question correctly. I am aware that server roles are for Server Editions of Windows. I even stated as much in my original post. I am asking what will happen when: 1) I create a new install package 2) Under Prerequisites, I right click "Windows Features" and click "Add ...

Re: IIS URL Rewrite Prerequisite URL

No problem.

I also want to point out that Microsoft has released version 2.1 of the IIS Rewrite module. I'm not sure if that's an upgrade to 2.0, or a separate install, but I wanted to mention it.

Thank you!

Re: IIS: Windows Feature or Server Role?

Thank you for the reply.

How are features, that are also roles, handled when selected for a server edition OS? For example, if I select IIS in Server Roles and then also select IIS in the Features for server editions, which one is applied?

IIS URL Rewrite Prerequisite URL

When attempting to use the IIS URL Rewrite 2.0 x64 prerequisite in a project, Advanced Installer fails to download it. Copy and pasting the default URL provided by Advanced Installer results in a 404 error page.

IIS: Windows Feature or Server Role?

I have an application which requires IIS. I see that I can configure IIS through either the Windows Features or Windows Server Roles section of Advanced Installer, but there is no guidance as to which should be used. From what I understand, Server Roles are typically a function of Windows Server edi...

Re: RemoveFiles operation not removing file

I'm going to put the answer here in case anyone else runs into this problem. After wasting four days trying to figure this out, it turns out the issue is with the "Do not overwrite existing file" checkbox on the file settings. Windows Installer does not actually avoid overwriting the file; instead i...

Crash when setting folder to always overwrite

When I right click the root application folder in the "File and Folders" screen, change the "Ovewrite Behavior" on the "Operations" tab to "Always Overwrite existing files", and then save the project, Advanced Installer crashes. The error dialog offers an option to send an error report, but when cli...

RemoveFiles operation not removing file

Hello, I unfortunately have another issue I do not understand. We have a configuration file, Configs.xml, that is installed with our product. The file is associated to the Configs.xml component and is configured to never overwrite an existing file. There is also a Modify XML action which changes one...

Re: Public properties and InstallExecuteSequence

Okay. Manually modifying the Property table in the "Table Editor" and adding DB_LOAD_DSN to SecureCustomProperties seems to have resolved that issue. However, other public properties I created are NOT listed in SecureCustomProperties, yet are being transferred. Why is Windows Installer picking some ...

Re: Public properties and InstallExecuteSequence

Hello, Catalin. Thank you for the reply. My issue is not with reading from the CustomActionData property in my custom action. That all works fine. It's with the value of a public property not being passed in to CustomActionData by Windows Installer. My first custom action is a function exported from...

Public properties and InstallExecuteSequence

Hello, I don't understand when a public property is transferred from InstallUISequence to InstallExecuteSequence, and when it is not. I am currently having an issue where a property that, as far as I can tell, should be transferred is not being transferred: 1) I have a dialog event which calls a cus...

Re: File not found error after using convert paths wizard

Thank you for your response Catalin. After your response, I decided to try removing and re-adding the environment variable. I found I can make Advanced Installer fail to find the file consistently only if I check the "Private variable available only in this project" check box when adding the path va...

File not found error after using convert paths wizard

Okay, it's possible I'm tired and missing something obvious, but I'm running into an issue with Path Variables and the SQL Database where immediately after converting the paths to use Path Variables with the wizard, Advanced Installer can no longer find my SQL Scripts. I have an environment variable...
