Re: update installer

Hello Alex and welcome to our forums, In Lisa's case, the problem occured because the upgraded setup was created by copying the old .AIP file. When this happens, the components' GUIDS will not change, resulting in shared resources. For more information about this, please have a look over the followi...

Re: Problems with setting .net framework 4.8 as mandatory prerequisite.

Hello Andre, This might be happening due to the "Reboot system after installing this prerequisite" option. When this option is used, a scheduled task is created whose purpose is to resume the installation after the reboot. This is why the reboot should be done after installing the prerequisite, not ...

Re: Run commands of batch file directly through installer

Hello Jacob, I believe you could achieve that by using a "Launch File" custom action that launches the cmd.exe and then pass those as arguments. Besides that, you could convert that to either VBScript or PowerShell (this would also be much easier) and use one of the following custom actions: Run Inl...

Re: Build exe without manifest question?

Hello,

I am not quite sure how to achieve that, but I found the following article from Microsoft:

which I believe you will find useful.

Hope this helps!

Re: Pass arguments from updater to the main app

Hello and welcome to our forums, I am not quite sure I understand your scenario here. Do you want, when the user drags and drop a file over the updater's shortcut , that file to be opened in your application? If that is the case, I'm afraid it might not be possible. The only arguments our updater.ex...

Re: Per-machine if admin, per user otherwise

Hello Toby, As per our documentation , the "per-machine if user is administrator, per-user otherwise" installation type requires the "InstallTypeDlg" dialog to be present in "Dialogs" page. If you would like to automate this process, I have written some time ago an article regarding this: InstallTyp...

Re: Application path in folder dialog keeps showing program files (x86) path

Hello, That is happening due to a phenomenon called "file redirection" . A 32-bit process will always write, on a 64-bit machine, to the 32-bit location. In our case, this is happening because your installer has the "Package type" of "32-bit package" (in "Install Parameters" page). You can find more...

Re: System Variable Not Uninstalling

Hello, From what I can see in our bug tracking tool, this was a design issue that couldn't really be fixed. However, an easy workaround for this would be right clicking on the "Application Folder" --> "Properties" --> checking the "Create folder on target machine" option. On the newer versions of Ad...

Re: Installer autodetects compile time references instead of runtime references - uses ref folder instead of lib folder

Hello and welcome to our forums,

Unfortunately, I can not really say why this is happening.

I have forwarded this to our development team for further investigations and I will update this thread as soon as I will have any useful information.

Best regards,
Catalin
