How to add an optional (non mandatory) resource file?

Advanced installer is able to add files or folders in Resources/ Files and Folders. On project build, the build process checks if all files exist and fails if any of files are missing. Can I configure a project to do not fail to build if some specific file is missing? For example, if the file exists...

Re: How to customize Advanced Installer prerequisites?

Thank you very much for the clarification! I've got a question from the maintainability perspective: If I understood correctly there are two projects created from one template in your proposed option. Does it mean that in case of a new custom action, I will need to create a custom action in one proj...

How to customize Advanced Installer prerequisites?

We would like to have two different installer versions of an application. 1). An installer has several prerequisites based on "Download single file from URL" approach. The installer size is small and it can download prerequisite files during installation and install them before application...

How a separate build could help in this case? It seems the build configuration doesn't have a package type parameter.

Re: Does Advanced Installer support ARM64 architecture?

At the moment I added an additional advanced installer project for ARM64 version. The ARM64 project has only one difference: package type is set to Arm64. I'm not happy about that because now I need to do same changes in both versions. Is it possible to have only one installer project and set Instal...

Re: Does Advanced Installer support ARM64 architecture?

Hello, Yes, you should be able to do so by selecting the appropriate option as I've mentioned above. Best regards, Catalin I've managed to install an Arm64 application using Advanced Installer. However, during installation in Task Manager/Processes the installer process is marked as (32 bit) even w...

Re: How to setup PowerShell custom action to provide details in case of action fail?

Hello, What I'm thinking here is that in case of failure, you can set a property and then see it in the "Custom Properties" section of your Installer Analytics account. Have you tried that? Best regards, Catalin I'm sorry, probably, I wasn't clear enough. At the moment Advanced Installer ...

Re: What would be the best practice to handle users with the restricted PowerShell ExecutionPolicy?

In case 1, we can do as you said in your point 1. However, for the second case, there's nothing we can really do. And most of the times, in an corporate environment, we are talking about the 2nd case. Just to double check, are you saying that if the Execution Policy is set using GroupPolicy (Machin...

Re: How to setup PowerShell custom action to provide details in case of action fail?

Hello, The script doesn't have any try/catch block and do not return any exit values. This is something you should add to your script if you need it. The script either returns success or error, these are the only options for the Windows Installer service that interprets them. Best regards, Catalin ...

What would be the best practice to handle users with the restricted PowerShell ExecutionPolicy?

An installer has several "Run PowerShell Inline Script" custom actions. We have found that some users face installation issues because of PowerShell ExecutionPolicy settings. How can this case be handled? 1). Probably we could have an additional custom action that would change ExecutionPol...
