Re: How to determine if it is an upgrade

Hello, The upgrade is detected through one of two properties - either OLDPRODUCTS or UPGRADINGPRODUCTCODE (can not really tell what's going behind the scenes as this is default to Windows Installer). For more information about this, please have a look over the following articles: Major Upgrades How ...

Re: Building a new installer

Hello Zsolt, I've given better thought to this and I've come up with the following: So basically the mixed package contains two packages, one 32-bit and one 64-bit which are installed based on the OS bitness. The chances that you have many 32-bit packages installed are really low, I would guess, con...

Re: Advanced Installer interface black!

Hello,

It is not currently possible to have a dark theme for Advanced Installer.

We already have this on our TODO list of improvements, but we are still debating whether we can add this or not as it would require lots of resources.

Thank you for your understanding!

Best regards,
Catalin

Re: How to set IIS app pool identity credentials from dialog user input

Hello,

You can achieve that by using the properties that the user inputs (e.g. POOL_ACCOUNT and POOL_PASSWORD) and then use them in IIS page --> your application pool --> "Identity" tab.

Re: Extracting archives before starting services

Hello Johannes, In order to achieve what you want, you can go to "Table Editor" --> "InstallExecuteSequence" and modify the sequence number for the action that extracts the archive to be lower than the one starting the services (called "StartService" ). Another way woul...

Re: File modified during custom action goes back to original content

Hello Peter, I am glad to hear everything is now working as you expected. One thing that I find that should be a bug is that we have a custom action (the very first one) that is set to immediate but it references a script that is on disk. The file hasn't been copied to disk yet by AI. This took awhi...

Re: File modified during custom action goes back to original content

Hello Peter, That might indeed be the reason why that happens. And sure, we can modify the sequence number so we can fit our custom action in there. For instance, we can increase the value of InstallFinalize from 6600 to 6605 and then have our custom action with the sequence 6601 . Screenshot_140.pn...

Re: Is this supported by Advanced Installer?

Hello Johannes,

Thank you for your input on this, it's definitely helpful.

Although the config file can indeed be a solution here, it is to be kept in mind that the application's code will still need to be modified so it can read the config file and then act accordingly.

Best regards,
