.NET custom action does not get APPDIR = solved

Fri Jul 01, 2011 9:54 pm

Hi everyone, since I've made this silly mistake twice, I am typing it up for me and possibly others to find.
I called a .NET custom action using the predefined installer action.
Then when it ran, my CustomAction installer class code could not access the APPDIR path information.

The reason was that although I had added the /h="[APPDIR]\" to the 64bit install customization, I had not added it to the 32bit install!

AdvancedInstaller nicely automatically generates the two kinds, so be sure to edit both with your settings.
