How to launch Application after installation for selected builds only?

Mon Jul 05, 2021 8:09 am

My application has app-64 and app-32 folders. App .exe is placed inside app-64 and app-32 folders. Depending on Windows configuration one of these folders is unpacked and installed.
Also, I have 4 different builds with different install conditions.
My question is: how to launch the application after its installation for certain builds only?
I found a checkmark "Launch application at the end of installation" in User Interface -> Dialogs -> First Time Install -> Exit Dialog. But:
1) It requires .exe. And I have my .exe files in app-64 and app-32 folders. I need to select the correct one depending on the platform.
2) I need it for certain builds only.
How can I achieve this?

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,
Tanya

Hello Tanya,

The easiest way to achieve this is to go in the "Custom Actions" page and add two "Launch file" custom actions as deferred (one for 32-bit and another for 64-bit), then set the appropriate conditions for them.

The 32-bit custom action can look as in the example below:
  • File to launch: [#MyApp.exe] (right-click and use the "File..." option to select the desired file)
    Condition: NOT VersionNT64 AND (AI_BUILD_NAME = "Build1" OR AI_BUILD_NAME = "Build2")
Let me know if you have other questions.
