[solved] ComboBox shows "Value" instead of "Text"

Hi,

if I configure a ComboBox where the Control Data Value is different from the Text, it shows a weired behaviour.
ComboBox_fail.PNG
ComboBox_fail.PNG (2.79 KiB) Viewed 2344 times
Is there a way to only show the Text?

Best regards,

[solved] BrowseDlg skips all following dialogs

Hi, I tried to follow your tutorial for using the BrowseDlg to choose a path at installation time http://www.advancedinstaller.com/user-guide/qa-browse-for-folder.html . However when I click on OK or Cancel on the BrowseDlg button, it just jumps to the Install Execution Stage and skips all following...

Re: Deselect Check Box when another Check Box is deselcted

Hi Esebiu,

Works great, thank you very much.

[solved] Deselect Check Box when another Check Box is deselcted

Hi,

I have two checkboxes on a dialog, let say:

Checkbox1 (Property: CB1_PROP)
Checkbox2 (Property: CB2_PROP)

Checkbox2 must not be selected whenr Checkbox1 is unselected.

How can I achieve this behaviour?

Best regards,

Angelo

Retry on failed custom action

Hi, some custom actions may fail because a ressource is not yet available (file handle open, service not properly shutdown, etc...). It would be great if the Installer would stop at that point but give the user the possibility to clear the problem manually before rolling back. A decison for "Rollbac...

Re: [solved] Custom Action on Rollback: How to copy files to appdir AFTER they are uninstalled

Hi Daniel,

I move my scripts to another location after they are installed and run them via "Launch File". This is smimilar to your idea and works perfectly.

Thank you very much,

Re: [re-opened] Custom Action on Rollback: How to copy files to appdir AFTER they are uninstalled

It turned out that this solution does not work any longer. Even temporary files are now removed during the "Remove Resources" stage (I could swear that was different few month ago). So again my question: "I have a custom roll back action that copies files to the [APPDIR]. As most of these files have...

Running Actions from temp directory with admin rights

Hi AI-Team, I have a custom action that needs admin rights. As it works at the end of the uninstall routine, I put the .bat file to the temp folder launching it via [&myBat.bat]. If I mark "Run as Administrator", the file is not found. However if I run the whole installer with privileged rights (rig...

Sending return Code from VBS inline code

Hi AI-team,

How can I send a return code from an inline VBS action to provoke a rollback?

I know there are some MSI return codes, but I have no idea how to return them from an inline action.

Best regards,

Re: Images not not shown on dialogs

Thanks to Daniel we now know, that the MSI-INstaller engine on Windows 7 is not able to render .png files. https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa367830(v=vs.85).aspx BMP and JPG do work but they are rendered very ugly. A much better approach was to manipulate the background JPGs of the theme. C...

[solved] Images not not shown on dialogs

Hi all,

when I place an image on a dialog it is shown in the dialog editor but not in the build installer. What did I do wrong?

Re: Custom Action on Rollback: How to copy files to appdir AFTER they are uninstalled

And just when reading my own explanation I see the solution :)

I have to add my custom action files as "temporary files" so that they will not be deleted during the rollback.

Re: Custom Action on Rollback: How to copy files to appdir AFTER they are uninstalled

Hi Daniel, My Custom Action is a "Launch installed file" action. I pass the property [APPDIR] via the command line arguments. If I set the action before Remove Resources it will never run as the installed file will be deleted on rollback. (does not work) I could run an inline action before Remove Re...
