Re: SignTool fails

Hello Zapp and welcome to Advanced Installer forums, I have tested this scenario, but I was unable to reproduce the described behavior. Upon further investigation, I could indeed notice that we deliver two signtool.exe executables. Their location is: WinDir:\Program Files (x86)\Caphyon\Advanced Inst...

Re: Access AI_ProgramFiles

Hello Alexander, Could you please try to retrieve the "ProgramFilesFolder" property instead? The AI_ProgramFiles is a custom made property and I am not quite sure if you can retrieve its value. With that being said, your script could look like this: $programFiles = AI_GetMsiProperty ProgramFilesFold...

Re: EXE to install only x86 32bit to run on ARM

Hello, Thank you for your followup on this. In the article you have given me, it states that: The other problem is that an MSI has a master table including a ‘platform’ field, and initially, I couldn’t work out what to put in there. If I set it to ‘Arm’ or ‘Arm64’, then msiexec.exe reported that the...

Re: EXE to install only x86 32bit to run on ARM

Hello and welcome to Advanced Installer forums, Unfortunately, I am not very familiar with the ARM architecture. First of all, just to make sure, in order to repackage your application, are you using our Repackager.exe tool or the "EXE to MSI" project template? As I am not familiar with the ARM arch...

Re: Installation Order of Operations

Hello, Since you have mentioned that you have a suite installation, I imagine that the features you are talking about are actually feature-based prerequisites (please correct me if I'm wrong). If that is the case, the order is actually dictated by the prerequisite's order. For instance, let's say yo...

Hello,
i can't see ExtractFilesFirst property in install parameter page

Hope this helps.
