Re: Building Mixed AMD64/ARM64 package

Doing this will result in multiple MSI files being created - is that correct?

Is there a future feature planned to do mixed ARM/Intel installers in a single MSI?

Building Mixed AMD64/ARM64 package

How would we go about building an AMD64/ARM64 mixed installer (similar to how you would build a 32/64-bit mixed installer)?

Thank you both - Daniel's solution worked for us, and is closer to what we are wanting to achieve.

Need to delay driver service starting

I have an application which installs a driver and some files, and it also runs a command - but it needs to run the command prior to services (including the driver) being started. I have the following custom actions (in this order) - InstallFiles (standard action) - Custom Action (executes a file tha...

Re: Windows LTSC/LTSB

So - I know pretty much nothing about Powershell...I am able to see that when I run this command:

Code: Select all

gwmi win32_operatingsystem | select OperatingSystemSKU
It returns the value 125 when running on LTSC. How can I translate that into an inline script for use with Advanced Installer?

Re: Removal of registry keys on uninstall, but not on upgrade

Commenting on a super-old thread...but I found a way to achieve this. In the component properties (under Organization) for my registry key I don't want removed, I set it as "Never Overwrite" and "Do not register this component with Windows Installer". The value "sticks" (it gets written on new insta...

Possible to use registry value as a condition

Is it possible to use the presence (or lack of) a registry value as a condition for a custom action? Alternatively, is there a way to set a property to be the value of a registry key (I can then use the property in my condition).

Ideally, I'd like to do this without writing a custom action itself...

Re: Launch Installed File as different user

Our upgrade installer is automatically launched and silently run by a service running as the local SYSTEM account. That is the reason we are not able to launch as the logged on user. I guess we will go the custom dll route. I just wanted to make sure that I wasn’t missing something prebuilt into adv...

Launch Installed File as different user

Is there a way to run the custom actaion "Launch Installed File" as a different user? For example, I'd like to run an application as the currently logged-in user (as fetched by the `LogonUser` property). I have investigated using `runas` command, but that prompts for a password. I can also use `scht...

Re: Launch binary with command-line install

That does look like what was happening in our case. Thank you! On a related note, is there a property that I can query (in a custom action or something) that will tell me if the current user has UI access? That is - a condition I could put on my launch application custom action that would only run i...
