What is the difference between these two Print-to-PDF Feature Bundles?

In my installer (AI version 18.4), in the list of pre-requisites under Windows Features >> Available Windows Features I see two different feature bundles that look similar. One is called "Microsoft Print to PDF" Another is called "Microsoft-Windows-Printing-PrintToPDFServices-Package" What is the di...

AI Build works locally but not on Azure

For a long time I have been building my AI application both on my local machine and on Azure Pipelines (using the Azure Advanced Installer Task) with no problems. After recent changes (which I will detail below), last night's build on Azure failed with the following error. Failed to execute Advanced...

How do I "fake" a first-time install to test my EULA?

I've managed to add a EULA to my application in both English and French (thanks to another answer on this forum). Now I would like to test it out. Unfortunately when I run the installer, it never shows me the EULA. I am guessing this is because it's not the first-time; I have already installed this ...

How do I use a local file for the license agreement

I am using AI Professional 18.0. I have a license agreement document that I want my MSI installer to show. I thought it would be as easy as just saving the file to my installer project and then specifying it somewhere in a path (like I do all my other files). But it's not working. I chose the "Black...

Anyway to make AI synchronize with a deps.json file?

I use Advanced Installer Professional to build a VisualStudio application that uses .NET 5.0. When I build it, my app creates a 'MyApp.deps.json' file that lists all of its .NET dependencies. It puts these dependency binaries in the output folder under a 'runtimes' subfolder. They all need to be the...

Re: Suggestions for predefined prerequisites

.NET 5.0 would be helpful.

I've got a Windows Desktop app that uses .NET Core 3.1 and has AI install the .NET Core Desktop x64 Runtime 3.1.4. I'd like to go to .Net 5.0

AI-provided prerequisite differs from Microsoft Version

My installer (which uses Advanced Installer 17.2) has the pre-requisite of "Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015-2019 x64". I have it checked in the box and when AI asks me if I want to download and cache the latest version I click "Yes". But I've noticed that the version that AI downlo...

Re: How can I prevent AI from automatically generating a new product code

Unfortunately that version feature seems to be the only way to get my full version to show up next to my app under Windows Settings >> Apps And Features. I want it to show my app version 2.1.XXX.0 there. In fact, I've noticed that even Advanced Installer itself shows its full version there, under Se...

How can I prevent AI from automatically generating a new product code

Is there a setting I can set so that Advance Installer will stop trying to automatically generate new product codes for me? I can't find one. To explain: My .NET application has a version resource embedded within it. I have my Advanced Installer project set up to retrieve its version number from the...

MalwareBytes thinks that AdvancedInstaller.com is a trojan

Today Malwarebytes prevented me from navigating here because it said the website was (or perhaps more accurately, hosted) a trojan. I've been using Malwarebytes for a long time. It's a pretty reliable piece of software. Not sure why it thinks your website hosts a trojan but you might want to look in...

Upgrade to version 16.7 prevents me from opening my AIP file!

I just upgraded from version 16.6.1 to version 16.7.
