But at the moment, the script always fires and always displays a completion dialog, regardless of what choice was made in the script. Here, we will need to condition the execution of the script. To do so...

Re: error code 1603 - Again looks like....

Hello Marcin, Unfortunately, I can not really say why this is happening (the log file does not really ofer many details, beside the custom action that fails). This looks to be a proprietary custom action of ours that deals with JSON files. Are you able to replicate this behavior on multiple machines...

Re: Custom Setup Tips Dialog

Hello, Thank you very much for sharing this with us! I am sure some other InstallShield users who have migrated to Advanced Installer will find this useful. If possible, could you please try to edit the post and re-attach the last image, as it looks like a wrong one was attached? Best regards, Catalin

Re: Problems with setting .net framework 4.8 as mandatory prerequisite.

Hello Andre, As promised, here is my followup after further investigating this. It looks like I was indeed right about the reason why this is happening. Basically, the scheduled task that is created to restart the setup after the reboot is not removed in due time (it is removed after the user presse...

Hello,

I have sent the download link for the .DLL, just in case we might have some delays with the release.

Re: stop install if app bitness is wrong

Hello Scott, @Catalin: I would have liked to use custom Launch Conditions but, unless I'm mistaken, I can't control the sequence of execution, which means I can't guarantee that the bitness check will be first. If that's not correct, please let me know. You are indeed right about this, the order of ...

Re: Problems with setting .net framework 4.8 as mandatory prerequisite.

Hello Andre, This might be happening due to the "Reboot system after installing this prerequisite" option. When this option is used, a scheduled task is created whose purpose is to resume the installation after the reboot. This is why the reboot should be done after installing the prerequisite, not ...

Re: Run commands of batch file directly through installer

Hello Jacob, I believe you could achieve that by using a "Launch File" custom action that launches the cmd.exe and then pass those as arguments. Besides that, you could convert that to either VBScript or PowerShell (this would also be much easier) and use one of the following custom actions: Run Inl...
