Re: Not installing into user input path?

Hi Catalin, I'll have to disagree with you on this issue. The "Surface" theme generates a series of Dialogs that includes the ability for a user to enter their own installation path. Why would the Surface theme create the "InstallDlg" that allows for user path input if that input is going to be igno...

Re: Not installing into user input path?

Hi Catalin, Thanks for getting back to me. You're suggestion worked! Is the "by design" or a bug? The documentation seems to suggest I should be able to drag and drop the order per your original suggestion. In addition, it seems the default "Theme" is what creates this problematic "ordering" of Dial...

Re: Not installing into user input path?

Hi Catalin, No, I didn't add the "InstallTypeDlg" after the InstallDlg, AI did that when I choose to have Only Me or Everybody installation type. There is no way for me to reverse the orders ... they don't move ... drag and drop doesn't actually move them? I also tried to Delete the InstallTypeDlg a...

Re: Not installing into user input path?

Hi Catalin, eMail sent with all requested items. Here is my observation from the log (see items in red): AIChangingAPPDIRBug.jpg You can see from the log that APPDIR entry is being set to my input "D:\Sim Horizon\Seasons\" (line 545). BUT, line 574 the APPDIR property value gets deleted?? and line 5...

Re: Not installing into user input path?

UPDATE:

I tested with the "User original installation path when upgrading" UNCHECKED and it still didn't install into the path I provided (typed in), used the default path.

Stuck.

Cheers, Rob.

Re: Not installing into user input path?

Hi Catalin, Unfortunately that's not the case. I do have the "Use original installation path when upgrading" checked, HOWEVER, I'm not doing an upgrade. Steps: 1. In my test case I do a full uninstall of my app via Control Panel. 2. Run installer for my app 3. Change install path manually (typing it...

Re: Not installing into user input path?

and the user entered path:
AI_InstallFolders3.jpg
AI_InstallFolders3.jpg (44.11 KiB) Viewed 3627 times
If I continue the installer ignores the path I entered "D:\Sim Horizon\Seasons" and uses the default path "C:\Program Files\Sim Horizon\Seasons"?

This is not the behavior I expected?

Cheers, Rob.

Not installing into user input path?

I seem unable to install my application into any other path than the default selection: AI_InstallFolders.jpg AI_InstallFolders1.jpg I can enter a different path at my Installer Dialog but nothing gets installed at the location I specify? It always uses the default path? Default: AI_InstallFolders2....

Re: AppId?

Hi Catalin, Thanks for the response. I'm a little confused by that article: 1. Expiration Date? Documentation says "The notification expires the day after the date specified." Is this so that I can setup a future date to display a notification message? 2. The AppID in your example has path informati...

Re: Updater issue when uninstalling?

Hi Catalin, Thank you for the detailed response, very helpful. I have it working as expected an as you pointed out it's likely I had the wrong version information in the update configuration file which triggered an update and since they were actually the same versions it triggered "maintenance" mode...

Re: Updater issue when uninstalling?

I was able to resolve this problem, apparently when I did "Save As" on my original AIP project and gave the project a different name something must have changed with the GUIDs?? Anyway, I went back to building the installer from the original .AIP project and that message no longer appears during an ...

Re: Updater issue when uninstalling?

Now I seem to be stuck with a message that says: MoreRecentVersionAlreadyInstalled.jpg Which doesn't make any sense? The updater finds a more recent version. I ok the update and when the uninstall starts I get the above error? Kinda stuck ... manual uninstall doesn't solve the problem either. Though...

Re: Not being prompted on Uninstall for Data Cleanup?

Hi Catalin, Thanks for the response. I got your test .aip and it's not representative of what I'm trying to accomplish. For example you have asd.txt ... I'm not trying to remove just a single file on uninstall, but an entire directory. Using your CleanUp wizard seems to be the source of the error as...
