Re: Build exe without manifest question?

Hello,

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

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...

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

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...

Hello, From what I can see, this has not yet been added. I believe most of the string translations from Advanced Installer was done with the help of our users, in exchange of an AI license or a Maintenance Plan extensions (more details in the "Can you translate MSI strings in other languages?" threa...

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.

Re: stop install if app bitness is wrong

Hello Scott, If you do not want to use the custom "Launch Conditions" approach, perhaps we could proceed as it follows: - have the search that determines if the bitness is correct or not - in the "Custom Actions" page, create a "Display error message" custom action that will be executed right after ...

Re: Tutorial on how to create consecutive patches.

Hello, Let's consider the following example so we can better understand the concept of consecutive patches. Let's say we have the following three versions of our setup: - version 1.0.0 - version 1.0.1 - version 1.0.2 Now, let's say we create a patch between version 1.0.0 and 1.0.1. When applying thi...
