Re: Setting permitions for different language versions of Windows fails

Hi Kira,

We now automatically localize the most used user/group accounts, so you can use the property corespondent to the targeted user/group from the linked article.

I believe the property GRP_NETWORK_CONFIGURATION_OPS is the one you should be using.

Best regards,
Bogdan

Re: PseudoFormatted Properties

Hi and welcome to our forums, First of all, let's clarify what PseudoFormatted means. The Advanced Installer PseudoFormatted data type is a string which can contain references to Properties . At build time the property references are replaced with the value of the respective properties. References e...

Re: Installing an old version when a new version is already installed

Hi, You can allow side by side installations of multiple versions of your application. However, this will not remove the newer version of your app. This is not supported by Windows Installer. Only when you install a newer version you can force the removal of the older ones, but not the other way aro...

Re: Windows Marketplace publishing error (.APPX submission)

Great, thanks for confirming.

The other two problems will disappear the moment your app/account is evaluated and accepted by the Microsoft team for upload in the store. Here is a similar situation on the the MSDN forums.

Re: Windows Marketplace publishing error (.APPX submission)

So if I understand correctly I can just edit software version as seen in attachment "software_version.png" to 4.5.3 and problem should be gone? Yes, that is correct. Regarding the order problem. We will address this issue ASAP, thanks for the feedback. Problem #2: I attached screenshot with the opt...

Re: You must include at least one Application in an UwpAppx build" error during the UwpAppX build

Hi,

Sure, we're curious too. Can you share with us the MSI you tried to convert with our converter? So we can see why it did not detected your shortcut correctly.

Regards.

Re: Windows Marketplace publishing error (.APPX submission)

Hi, Problem #1 : The version you set in Package Information page, in your project, sets the forth field (i.e. revision) to value 787. It appears the Win Store does not allow setting this fourth version field. The solution is to edit your project and set your version to this value: 4.5.3 Problem #2 :...

Re: You must include at least one Application in an UwpAppx build" error during the UwpAppX build

Hi and welcome to our forums, From you question it is not clear to me if you are using Advanced Installer to build the AppX or our Desktop Bridge Setup Converter. Since you mentioned Product Details page I assume you are using Advanced Installer. Now, in your Advanced Installer project, in the left ...

Re: An Installer by any other name?

Hi and welcome to Advanced Installer forums, Starting with Visual Studio 2017 Microsoft has indeed introduced some changes in its setup package, but these are not related to any "end of the MSI". To see a detailed explanation of the changes MSFT did on their VS installer packages, I recommend this b...

Re: Theme Coloring and MSI vs EXE

Hi, Hrm, that's unfortunate. Do you guys plan to work on this ? Unfortunately this is not on our roadmap for the near future, due to an architectural limitation from Advanced Installer. In theory, I could accomplish the same thing by cloning the AIP file and then Closing an AIP file will lead to big...

Re: merging 2 installers that uninstalls both on update

Hi, Each MSI will know to handle the removal of the old version, if the upgradecode is the same, as you said. The only condition you need to make sure is followed, is for the latest MSI packages you deploy to have a higher version number than any of the old ones. The higher version number will trigg...

Re: Theme Coloring and MSI vs EXE

Hi, 1) We analyzed this situation in the past and decided not to force the user to have the EXE output because of the scenario mentioned in your second question. We have users that build also an MSI from the same project, mostly used by IT admins to deploy it silently over the network with SCCM, Act...

Hi and welcome to our forums, To achieve what you want you need to create two separate MSI and bundle them. Here is what you can try: - create a separate MSI that installs only the certificates as you do now - then take this MSI and add it as a pre-install or feature-base prerequisites, in Prerequis...

Re: Update dll every installation

Hi, As you said, the option Mihai recommend applies only for normal files, from File table, not for assemblies. I don't believe this is possible for assemblies with the same version number. Here is a similar talk on SO.com . The version number you define in Assemblies page, or directly in your assem...
