Re: Installation not recognized when recreating installer

Hello Liviu,

Thanks a lot for the explanation and the great solution. This information definitely helps not only with understanding this part of the update process better, but also how to go forward from here.

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...

Remember the last used build config

Hi, I open my current project in Advanced Installer, then select a specific build configuration and create an installer using this menu: build_configs.png And the next time I reopen Advanced Installer it forgets the last used build configuration (thus the menu above again has the initial build confi...

Re: Skipping custom dialogs on patch/upgrade/update

Hi Catalin, Thanks for the reply! OLDPRODUCTS is a property that is set to the previous version ProductCode. As you can imagine, this is only set on upgrade. So I adapted my installer and now it shows a message box with the contents of the OLDPRODUCTS property ("OLDPRODUCTS: [OLDPRODUCTS]"...

Skipping custom dialogs on patch/upgrade/update

Hello,

We have a few custom dialogs which are required for the first time install.
When upgrading/updating our product these dialogs should not be displayed. We just want a simple upgrade that overwrites updated files with the newer version.
How can we do this?

Re: Starting and stopping services during install and uninstall

Stopping the service with a condition does not work during uninstall. If I set the condition to 1 it is executed. I need the StopService action only if my service is being installed/reinstalled/upgraded/uninstalled. Capture1.PNG Conditions i tried so far that are not working: ((&LIMS_Service_x64...

Re: Starting and stopping services during install and uninstall

Hi, Where can I find the "StopService" action? I only can add "StopServices" and I can't edit anything there. Capture.PNG It also doesn't stop the services silently. Is there a hidden option to make it silent? 2024-05-10 11_58_37-mgsbldsrv02 - Remote Desktop Connection.png Best r...

Starting and stopping services during install and uninstall

Hi, we have 2 questions regarding services. 1. If I need to start a service during install is there a way to tell the installer to continue the installation? On our current installer there is only an option to cancel the whole installation. 2. If I need to (force) stop a service without any confirma...
