Re: Persistent User Data - add non-install files

Hi,

I'm afraid that I don't understand. If the file is not in the package, why try to preserve it? If the license file is downloaded by your application, your application is responsible for handling the existing file.

Re: SharePoint installation dialog

Hi, When is the "showing only Sharepoint sites" TODO item planned for implementation? It's currently scheduled for version 9.5.

Hi,

This is already on our TODO list and it will be available in a future version. I increased its priority. In the meantime, you can select all controls on a dialog, use copy function and then paste them on a new dialog.

Re: Altering complete package

Hi Den, Currently this can be done only before generating the MSI, by creating separate builds in Media page. You can then set different elements for each build. However, we are thinking about implementing some kind of tool which can be used to modify already generated installers. Can you please giv...

Re: Suggestion for Notes

Hi Stefan,

This is already supported. Simply click the Notes ribbon button in View tab or use the View -> Info Panes -> Notes Pane application menu. You can add a note for the current application view or for the selected installer element (if supported).

Re: Is automatic product key entry possible?

Hi, The best approach is using the Convert EXE to MSI project type. It allows you to create an MSI wrapper over existing installers (for example the one you want to automate). In this MSI you can create a search which retrieves the license key. The search property can then be used in the existing in...

Regarding the virtual directory name, it supports formatted values . So you can simply use an installer property as the name and allow the user to c...

Re: Project-based Path Variables option

Hi,

Yes, the path variables are read for each project. So if one of your projects has different path variables, they will be used when loading the project.

Re: AppX / Metro Installations

Hi, Doesn't this seem a bit like predatory practice on part of Microsoft, to be pushing long-time install vendors out of "the game" like this? Not really. Current MSI and EXE installers will still be supported a long time from now. AppX applications have a different target, this is why Microsoft use...
