XML file merge by command line

.Net programs compilation produces a .config xml file with some elements added at compile time. Other program-specific configurations could be present in the file, added from the installer. AdvancedInstaller has the ability to visually merge the xml file from the source, but at command line I've fou...

Re: Installer return code when prerequisite fails

The only reason I can think about is that the application is still running at the moment the framework is being uninstalled

Re: Installer return code when prerequisite fails

I think that you are not able to completely uninstall .Net framework without a reboot. Have you tried to look at the logs of the .Net installer?

Re: Chained package condition evaluation fails if string comparison is present

Hi, on the end the MY_VAR issue was a false positive issue: it was due to mistakes I've made in subsequent tests trying to isolate the real one. So forget about the MY_VAR. The problem I encountered here is the fact that package C is never launched, no matter how I pass the property to it (either MY...

Re: Chained package condition evaluation fails if string comparison is present

Well, that's right. Thank you for your reply. Really my situation is a bit more complex, but trying to find the issue in my tests I made some mistakes. So this is the situation which I cannot find a solution for. I have an installer A, which has various prerequisites and a chained package B, which h...

Chained package condition evaluation fails if string comparison is present

Hi I've struggled in understanding why a chained package was not installed, and on the end I think it is an AdvancedInstaller bug (version 16.8) The installer has an INI search parameter MYVAR. Then a chained package has to be installed based on this parameter. The condition that I use is: NOT Insta...

Re: Custom action on error

Thank you very much for your clear and quick response. But, what if the prerequisite that fails is launched, let's say, in the Searches phase (before the Path resolution phase)? Custom actions there do not have the On the During installation rollback option enabled. Or what if a prerequisite fails (...

Custom action on error

Hi, we have a complex installation project which launches various prerequisites and custom actions. We need to have a custom action to be launched whenever the installation fails for any reason: I have tried a custom action to be run "During installation rollback", but it seems not to be run, for ex...

MS Defender 2019-07-29 update detects setup as a virus

Today's Defender update is detecting a setup made with AdvancedInstaller 16.1 as virus. Before the update the setup was working correctly. An older setup with a previous AdvancedInstaller version is working correctly.

Re: Advanced Installer 15.2 regression bug: Custom Action "Hide program window"

Btw, is there a way to duplicate entire folders during install process? I know there it is a duplicate file action in files and folders, but it is not possible to duplicate entire folders. It would be useful.

Re: Advanced Installer 15.2 regression bug: Custom Action "Hide program window"

I'm testing this fix with Advanced Installer 15.5.1 and my installation is waiting indefinitely when starts a Launch File action. I had unchecked the "Hide program's windows" and could see that the prompt executions was finished but the install process do not continue with the installation. Hi, we ...

Re: Installer return code when prerequisite fails

I'm pretty sure in the tests I was running the main installer with the full UI, but in most cases it will be run silently.
Does this mean that I cannot verify this scenario? Or that my main program will continue before Sql finises installation? This could be an issue...

Re: Installer return code when prerequisite fails

I think that it is better if I describe you the issue. Our application installer is created with exe and resources next to it. It has Microsoft SQL Server 2014 as a featured resource. The test: install on Windows Server 2008 with SqlServer 2005 SP3. Since SqlServer 2014 upgrade requires SqlServer 20...

Re: Installer return code when prerequisite fails

Thank you for your reply.
But it seems that when the prerequisite fails (it is a feature prerequisite), the main installation stops (the check you mention is already unchecked: this is what I need), but the return code is still 'success'.
Is this a bug, a normal behavior or am I missing something?

Installer return code when prerequisite fails

For various reasons we need to launch the installer from command line. The fact is that if a feature prerequisite fails (upgrade to sqlserver 2014 in this case), it seems that the exit code of the main installer is 0. Is there something I have to do in order to have an error return code?
Thanks
