Thanks for the quick reply. Unfortunately there is not a virtual directory prior to installation, at your step 1. I've been using IIS for years and have confirmed many times that there is no virtual directory. This is why I asked if someone knows if there's some sort of IIS cache that is confusing A...

Yes, I used IIS to make sure that there are no files, virtual directory, or folders present prior to installation. If I click yes on the error message, the files are installed and I can start IIS, right click on the folder, properties, then create the application, and it does work. I'm installing th...

Yes, I've verified that the files, folder, and virtual directory are not there before installation. Could it maybe exist in a cache that IIS keeps around somewhere?

Virtual Directory [website] on Web Site "Default Web Si

For some reason with build 6.2 of AI I'm now getting this error when installing a web app: Virtual Directory [website] on Web Site "Default Web Site" already exists on this server. Do you want to skip this virtual directory and continue the installation? I've verified that the files and virtual dire...

Actually, let me change this around a bit. I added a registry search named SQLINSTALLED for: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\90\ Looking for the key: InstalledInstances It gets the raw value. Then, I set up a launch condition for SQLINSTALLED="", with the description "SQL Server Express...

Detect if SQL Server 2005 Installed

I'm pretty sure this is the registry key to check and see if SQL Server 2005 is installed, just wanting to verify this with everyone here and see if anyone knows of a better/different key.

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\90

If the 90 key exists, SQL Server is installed.

Thanks,
Brian

Prerequisite downloads but won't install

I could SWEAR that this was working. I just updated to AI 4.9.1 and my prerequisite will download from my URL OK (which tells me that it's needed), but it won't install. It's almost like it's being skipped after it's downloaded. I've tried regrabbing the integrity check items... If I include the fil...

Order of Launch Conditions

I've got two launch conditions that I need to check for. The first is that another product is installed (Visio). The second is that a component of the product (.NET Programmability for Visio) is installed. I can successfully check for both no problem. But, I need to check that the product is install...

Thanks. Doing this through a vbs like this, I don't understand how this works for you? I've tried this on many different computers and it doesn't work. I'm thinking you must have included regasm.exe in your installation? Calling a vbs or a batch file like this will only work if regasm.exe is in the ...

The previous thread doesn't work for me, the DOS window pops up. I'm not running batch files, I'm running exe files (regasm.exe is one). Does anyone know of a way to hide the DOS window that calls REGASM.EXE when registering a dll like this?

I've had both Thawte and Comodo for digital signing and I like Thawte much better. Not that there's any difference in the actual certificate but the signing authority certificat is cleaner with Thawte. My Comodo SA cert has a funky name (UTN-User_Trust - or something like that) that just too wierd. ...

Update Options Frequency Date

Hello. In the current build (4.6.4) the updater options don't seem to be working with regards to frequency. I've set our installer up to check every 28 days. When launching the update options /configure, it correclty shows the frequency to be 28 days. However, the Next Notification date/time always ...

Boy, if you figure out how to not get the DOS window to pop up, please let me know. I've got three of them popping up and would love for them to go away. They're all .NET commandline applications. I was starting to ponder making them a .NET dll and call into functions within them?

Thanks. For those that are interested, here's how I did it, it's pretty easy to do, but not so intuitive to sift through the details: 1. Create a file search for RegAsm.exe, this will be used to register. Make the name REGASM, Use path=[WindowsFolder]Microsoft.Net\Framework, Set depth=5. Set the Min...
