Re: AppX / Metro Installations

Hi, The AppX engine is not public like Windows Installer. So there is no point in a custom implementation and additional features are out of the question. Visual Studio 11 offers everything you need to create AppX packages. If you need more than Visual Studio 11 offers, you can't use AppX. Regards, ...

Re: Ghost previous version of an installed program

Hi Silvio, Your EXE has the same version and size in both installers. This is usually a bad thing because it may lead to unwanted behavior. So an improvement would be to increase the version in your new package. We were able to reproduce the problem, but the installation seems to work correctly. The...

Re: Prerequisites "Skip Post-Install Searches" Option

Hi, Please note that the "Skip post install searches" option was a minor hack designed to support prerequisites which are always installed. This is why it was transformed into a feature which supports prerequisites that are always installed. A prerequisite with an install condition which is not true...

Re: AI Evaluation questions: Assembly reference path

Hi, The first problem I noticed was that the Deployment Package Folder path was composed with double backslashes Can you please give me more details about this? What do you mean by "Deployment Package Folder path"? In the Visual Studio IDE, most of my dll references are stored in the folder "/dll_li...

Re: Create property-based folder

Hi, Please note that property values in Install Parameters page cannot use other properties. This is why a "Property set with formatted" custom action is required to set your custom property to the formatted path. Regarding the custom action share, we are unable to reproduce this behavior. Does it h...

Re: Standalone builder

Hi, Advanced Installer already has a command line interface . Please note that instead of getting separate licenses only for build, you can get a floating license . It can be used by any developer on any machine (non-simultaneous use). We found that this type of license is much easier to manage and ...

Re: Detect Service = "started" and stop the uninstalling

Hi, This is not recommended because it prevents the user from uninstalling the application. Even if the service is running, the uninstall can still be performed. The only inconvenience is that it would need a reboot to finish. However, if you really want to prevent the uninstall, you can try this ap...
