Re: Azure Devops: Build fails with AI 18.6

Hello Liviu, sorry, that doesn't make any sense. It works perfectly fine, when I only change one thing: I switch back to version 18.5. I didn't change anything else. I am not using signtool.exe, but as far as I understand this message YOUR exe C:\hostedtoolcache\windows\advinst\18.6.0\x86\custact\x8...

Re: Changing Fonts - "Use Indirection" option

Hi Catalin, I still don't get it. For example, I select a text field in the "MaintenanceTypeDlg" and see, it has text style "use indirection: True" & "IndirectProperty: SubTitleStyle" If I then go to the font settings and look for the property "SubTitleStyle", I see that the the text style "SubTitle...

Azure Devops: Build fails with AI 18.6

Our build pipeline was set to always use the latest version. Today (after using AI 18.6), we received the following error: The digital signing of the C:\hostedtoolcache\windows\advinst\18.6.0\x86\custact\x86\aipackagechainer.exe file failed. Error message: 'SignTool Error: The specified PFX password...

Re: Changing Fonts - "Use Indirection" option

Hi Catalin, you were totally right. I didn't know that you could change the theme per build. Thank you very much for your help! Now, only the bug using the "indirection" option still exists, leading to having to change the fonts for every single page, but at least there's a workaround :-) Best regar...

Re: Changing Fonts - "Use Indirection" option

Hello Catalin, are you sure, you actually built the setup or used the "Test Installation UI" option? I built the setup with different machines and used different machines for running the setup. The result is always the same: The background is black. What are the technical differences between using t...

Re: Changing Fonts - "Use Indirection" option

Hello Catalin, i will send you the AIP file of my project to have a look at it. In the meantime, I continued my research. It looks like if I use the "Test Installation UI" option, everything from the background perspective is rendering as expected. When I actually build the setup and run it, the col...

Re: Launched exe stays in background

Hello Catalin,

thank you for the detailed research and explanations. I could indeed get the desired behavior by moving all those custom actions to "Finish Dialog Stage".
Just for me to understand: All actions in this stage are performed before the "Exit Dialog" is shown?

Best regards,
Simon

Re: Changing Fonts - "Use Indirection" option

Hello Catalin, this bug is even bigger and needs to be fixed as soon as possible. I expect to get an emergency fix by next week, you can contact me via email. We just realized that when we set a background image, also indirection is not used correctly. This does not only mean that we would have to s...

Re: Changing Fonts - "Use Indirection" option

Hi Catalin,

I can confirm that this is working as expected when using the theme "BlackSurface". However, when I am using "WhiteSurface", those changes won't apply. I am using version 18.4.
Can you check that on your end?

Best regards,
Simon

Changing Fonts - "Use Indirection" option

Hi Team, I was trying to change some fonts for a project using the "Surface" theme. For example, I edited the font "Manufacturer" (Property "ManufacturerFont"). However, these modifications only apply if I go to the Dialogs page, select the text field and then change "Use Indirection" to "false". As...

Re: Setup requires Internet conection if I add an prerequisite

Hello Catalin, you are right, I tried again and saw the notification. However, I didn't see it twice before and it disappeared quite fast. Still, it doesn't make sense to me that you are adding this option even though I am choosing "no". I could only understand this behavior when I selected "yes", b...
