'Run PowerShell Inline Script' can't access temporary files

I've got the following custom action called: RunInstallScriptInline https://i.imgur.com/diRedWD.png It runs a powershell script that sets up self-signed certificates, website and app pools. In order to set up certificate I need to pass a crt and pfx files to it. I was trying to do it using temporary...

How to protect a command line argument being passed into 'Launch File' custom action?

I'm creating a certificate file using certuil, and need to pass in a password argument into it. I believe I need to use a property for that purpose ('User Defined' property?). What's the recommended way of ensuring people can't extract that password by looking at the generated msi file? Thanks.

How do I add command line arguments to 'Run powershell script file' custom action?

I don't see a way to specify command line arguments for 'Run powershell script file' custom action. You can only do it if you are using a 'Launch File' custom action, or 'Run Powershell Inline Script' action.

Re: Create self-signed certificate on IIS

It would be a nice feature. In the meantime the best you can do is a custom powershell action using New-SelfSignedCertificate cmdlet.

Re: How to disable or self-calculate Sha1 attribute from aip project file?

The issue is the fact that the very process of building the installer requires a new commit, so I want to understand why it happens, and then come up with a workaround for that. I think I'm on the right track here - by trial and error I figured out that sha1 is generated from the file specified in t...

How to disable or self-calculate Sha1 attribute from aip project file?

See the diff below. Whenever I save the aip project file I end up with Sha1 diff, that causes issues with our CI system. Is it possible to either disable generation of that value? If not is it possible to generate the value on our own? How is it calculated? Thanks. https://i.ibb.co/61nr2nr/advanced-...

How can I set 'File path' for an Update project via command line?

I'm trying to set up Advanced Installer on our Build Server. We build both MSI and Update projects using Advanced Installer. The problem is, each update file needs to point to a new msi (see red border in the screenshot below). How do I go about setting that path via either Powershell or CMD? In oth...

Re: VS2019 throws the 'AdvInstVSIntegrationPackage' package did not load correctly error.

We decided against using the extension, so I never got a chance to test it, but glad the fix worked for others.

We've just hit the same issue. I'm assuming there still is not a better workaround?

Is there any way to ignore updates.aiu timestamp and always download it?

I'm testing switching locations of download url when using updater.exe (by passing in the url via -url command line option). During the tests I noticed that the updater would sometimes not detect new updates. After troubleshooting I tracked it down to the fact that the updates.aiu file was not being...

Do I need separate updater service for each deployed app?

I am trying to use Advanced Installer to build installers for multiple apps. The problem is the users installing the apps usually don't have admin privileges. The suggested workaround is to use Updater service as described here: https://www.advancedinstaller.com/user-guide/qa-elevated-updates.html M...

Re: How to add URL prerequisite for .NET Framework 4.5.2?

Could also be an item in right click menu, because that's how I was adding prerequisites in the first place. I would right click on Pre-install folder, and select 'New Package Prerequisite'. If you added 'Predefined Prerequisites' menu item there I'd be able to find it without resorting to the forum.

Basically I have a service packaged as an MSI, let's call it MyService.msi. It's one of the 'Pre-install' prerequisites inside my Advanced Installer build, MyAdvancedBuild.exe, which contains many other MSI's. Now when I run the MyAdvancedBuild.exe on a target computer, if it already had MyService.m...
