Create Only One .AIP Backup

When AI is updated to a new version and you manually open an AIP after the upgrade it creates a backup, which is great. You can then save the project and you don't get the message again. The problem is if you upgrade AI and you don't manually open and save each project and check it into your repo, i...

Re: Change Sequence For DIFx In Table Editor

Hi Dan, This could happen indeed if your install certificate custom action is scheduled before the "Paths Resolution" action group. All the temporary files are deployed on disk at install time during the "CostFinalize" standard action (part of the "Paths Resolution" action group). So, a temp file pa...

Re: Change Sequence For DIFx In Table Editor

Also, I discovered that while doing a silent install, the temporary file property (AI_FILENAME) is not being set for the certificate. This worked in 14.9 and doesn't in the latest.

Re: Change Sequence For DIFx In Table Editor

Daniel, That is the way I had it configured, but it now randomly works about 10% of the time. I recently moved the CA under Searches and it seemed to work a couple of times, but then it started to fail again with the message still displaying or just erroring out during silent installs. I see the cer...

Change Sequence For DIFx In Table Editor

I need to install the certificate for the cat driver before the driver gets installed by DIFx so that the "Windows can't verify the publisher of this driver software" isn't displayed. The issue is that the certificate custom action runs after the driver because of the deferred sequence. Is there a w...

Re: •Request MSI elevation, aka "Run as administrator" (without an EXE bootstrapper)

Hi Eusebiu, Yes, I can reproduce it with a brand new project as well. We have multiple domains and the accounts have access across domains, but the MSI is run directly on the PC and not pushed to any machines. I can recreate it by remotely or physically logging into the PC's and by using accounts th...

Re: •Request MSI elevation, aka "Run as administrator" (without an EXE bootstrapper)

Eusebiu, It occurs if I launch it by using msiexec /I or by double clicking it. I tried it with other projects and I get the same result. Here is my test scenario: I use a test account from "alpha" domain and add it to "Users" group with Remote Desktop Access permissions to computer in "beta" domain...

•Request MSI elevation, aka "Run as administrator" (without an EXE bootstrapper)

Hello, I was testing this new feature as it's huge for our organization and am seeing strange behavior. It keeps looping on the Windows Installer "Preparing to Install" Dialog, as you can see in the URL below. I'm testing this on W10 and logging shows the last action as "Doing action: AI_RestartElev...

Re: Don't Change Product Code at Build Time

Thank you, that worked:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Caphyon\Advanced Installer 14.9\bin\x86\AdvancedInstaller.com" /edit "Pathtoproject\Project.aip" /SetVersion -fromfile C:\pathtofile\FileName.exe -noprodcode

It would be very helpful to have an option through the project UI or aiproj to automate this.

Don't Change Product Code at Build Time

Is there a way to disable a new product code from being generated with every build? I have tried using command line: AdvancedInstaller.com /edit project.aip /SetProductCode -langid 1033 -guid {0000000000000} then build the projects in the solution with msbuild, but it changes it again during build t...
