Installer Requires An Active Internet Connection for Installation - Once more

Post by MarcinK71 » Tue Sep 22, 2020 11:53 am

As I can't see any answer for this issue, I need to ask myself.

I had no problem with previous versions of Advanced Installer. I am not sure when it came. Probably 17.1...
My issue is that I have internet connection, however I am getting error message:
That installed needs internet connection.

Hi,

I can confirm you there seems to be some issues with the implementation we currently use for our Internet check launch condition. Currently we use the INetworkListManager::get_IsConnectedToInternet method from INetworkListManager interface and it seems this solution does not offer foolproof Internet detections all the time.

We will try to analyze and implement a better solution in the future and hopefully this improvement will be available in one of the next versions of Advanced Installer. When so, we will update you on this forum thread too.

All the best,
Daniel

Hi Daniel

I am glad, problem was identified. Looking for solution then.

BTW. It works on some windows versions on others not.

Yes, we are aware of that. :(

Hopefully we will manage to implement a foolproof solution soon.
