MSI 64-bit ProgramFiles (x86)

Postby rmoc » Fri Dec 01, 2017 1:46 pm

I have created a 64Bit MSI package.

But when I start the setup under Windows 10 (64Bit) the installation directory "C: \Program Files (x86)" is used.

Why?

Hello,

I'm not so sure why this happens. Can you please send us the .AIP (project file) and a verbose log of the installation to support at advancedinstaller dot com so we can investigate them?

If you cannot share with us your project file, then you can try to isolate the behavior in a buildable sample (.aip + its referenced files) which we can build and test on our side.

Also, please try to give us a step by step test case too.

All the best,
Daniel

Hello René,

This happens because you are running the setup package built with "Build" buildname. Please note that the settings in our "Install Parameters" page must be set for each build included into your setup package.

Please proceed like this:

1. go to "Install Parameters" page and in the top toolbar select the "Install Parameters" tab
2. in the builds combo box select your "Build" build
3. set the package type for this build to 64-bit option too and rebuild the project

Test again the rebuilt setup package.

All the best,
Daniel

Hello, Daniel,

Thank you for this tip. I see the selection of the build configuration for the first time in the toolbar. :-)

Kind regards,
René
