PublishComponent Table

Back a few versions ago the PublishComponent table was added to the default template msi file in AdvancedInstaller, see thread http://www.advancedinstaller.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=845. For some reason it's gone now? Every time I update AI I lose the table in the template (I think it's being repla...

Commandline to create self extracting exe?

I've run into a little bit of a catch 22. I've been packing all of the files into an exe and am now changing our installer to use the AutoUpdate feature. Now I need to get the msi file so that I can put it on our server. I've run the setup.exe /extract: comand to get the bare msi, but it seems that ...

Create single exe?

Hi. I have a few prerequisites and an msi that I'm creating with AI. Our case is kinda funny in that I need to modify the msi file using Orca to add items to a table (PublishComponent - it's for a Visio solution). After I'm done doing this, I'd like our final installer (msi, prerequisites, etc) to b...

I would not do a file search for .Net 2.0 as the version of mscoree.dll can exist as a different version than the installed framework.

See my post here on how I did it:

OK, I think I figured out a way to do this. First, I set a Registry Value Criteria on a new Prerequisite. I made the value "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\.NETFramework\policy\v2.0\50727", set the Minimum version to 50727 and left the maximum version blank. This seems to have done the trick and the setup.e...

Detect .Net Framwork in Prerequisite

Here's how to detect what version of .Net is installed: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;[LN];315291 I'm not sure how AI does this in a prerequisite is correct? The one that's pre-defined by Advanced Installer searches for the file mscoree.dll, and checks the version. But this isn't...
