I want to stop the installer

Post by marknicolai192 » Sun May 12, 2019 11:44 am

Hi all,
If my software isn't installed on a computer, I always want the installer to run. If a previous version of the software is installed but a specific file in the installation isn't present (i.e an older version), I want to stop the installer. How can I do this with a launch condition. For each new version of my software I create a full installer with a new product version.
Thanks

Hello Mark and welcome to Advanced Installer forums,
If my software isn't installed on a computer, I always want the installer to run.
Please keep in mind that this is the default behavior.
If a previous version of the software is installed but a specific file in the installation isn't present (i.e an older version), I want to stop the installer. How can I do this with a launch condition.
I think that this can be achieved through a search. The result of a search is saved in a property. You can use that property as a condition for your launch condition.

Hope this helps.

All the best,
Catalin
