Additionally, some information as to why you would need this is also welcome.
Hello Catalin,

I have just sent you an e-mail with an example project and further information.

Collapse all features and their components

Hi, Sometimes when I open the .aip project and navigate to the Organization view, all the features and their components are expanded. Two suggestions: We can press "Collapse All" at a feature, but not at the root node (Product). Would be great if this is supported, otherwise (as multiselec...

Add comments to dialog events

Hi, I have added many events for some of the dialogs, and it thus sometimes takes a while to find the place where xyz was done, and to figure the idea of some consecutive event-chains. To mitigate this, I would appreciate it if I could add comments to events, as a way to make the individual statemen...

Add dictionary using relative path to repository

Hi, I want the following: Add the additional installer data (= Repository) to version control Add all translated strings to this location as well, thus as I understand it the un_de.ail, un_en.ail (for changes in the default English and German translations inside the Project Strings) and a dictionary...

Service start timeout

Hi,

How to decrease the "service could not be started" timeout, which happens when there is a problem with starting the service during the installation?

Multiple shortcuts with same name and location

Hi, There is a restriction that Advanced Installer does not allow me to create multiple shortcuts with the same name at the same location. As the name of my shortcuts includes a property, and those shortcuts are also only included depending on the chosen build config, I need to use the same name mul...

Re: Installation not recognized when recreating installer

Hello Liviu, Thanks for the in-depth explanation of both codes. That's exactly how I understood it already. I verified that the "Allow side by side installs of different product versions" option is not enabled. When you install the second version and it has the same UpgradeCode but a highe...

Re: More detailed log output

Hello Catalin, Thanks for explaining the steps necessary to get a more detailed log using AI_DEBUGLOG=1 property , that will definitely come in handy next time! For me it would have been obvious if I just did one step and then rebuilt the project and this issue appeared. But instead, I did many chan...

Re: Remember the last used build config

Hello Catalin, So I have 8 build configurations. Per default, when opening the .aip file, always the third one is selected in the build menu. So when I e.g. build the fifth build config, then close the .aip file, then reopen it, the third one is selected again in the build menu. What I would need is...

Installation not recognized when recreating installer

Hi, I create an installer two times using a power shell script to build the .aip project. I make sure to generate a new ProductCode, but I also assign the same UpgradeCode both times. Thus in the end I have (imaginary numbers just to visualize it): Installer 1: ProductCode ABC123, UpgradeCode 555 In...

Extract Archives - assign to component

Hi, It would be great if the Extract Archives action could be assigned to a specific component (and in turn to a feature) or directly to a feature. In the current way, this is not possible and it can be easily missed that this action is always executed, no matter the chosen build config and in turn ...

More detailed log output

Hi, The following error message tells us that the specified file could not be found. But what is the specified file? Is this an error message that is thrown by Advanced Installer itself? If yes, can you please include the path/name of the specified file in the log output? That would definitely be be...
