No automatic save at Build

Hi,

>No automatic save at Build.

Is there some way to optionally turn this off and have AI only ask if the project should be saved only when closing?
(Similar to when using the test "UI Installation" function)

Thank you.

Re: No automatic save at Build

Hello Clint,

I'm afraid we don't have support for this. Maybe we'll add this improvement in a future version of Advanced Installer thank you for your suggestion. However, since your is the only request implementing this has a very low priority for the moment.

Thank you for your understanding.

All the best,
Daniel

Hi,
that will be great, if it is possible in a future version of AI. Every Time I want to test something I make several copies of the project file....
Current Version of AI: 16.5

You might consider putting your project files under some sort of version control. That way you can always revert back to your most recent known-good version.

Re: No automatic save at Build

We recently acquired the most recent release (Pro version). Was a toggle ever added to the software to NOT save the project on build? Otherwise is there a command line switch for batch files?

Hello,

Unfortunately this has not yet been added.

However, I have increased the ticket's priority and hopefully it will be implemented in a future version of Advanced Installer.

Best regards,

Re: No automatic save at Build

Hello guys,

As a followup and for whoever will stumble accross this in the future, the solution is to use the .AIC file, where you have to specifically use the /Save parameter in order to save the project.
The project will not be modified by the edit commands specified in an AIC file. The Save command must be used explicitly in order to persist the project state after a sequence of edit commands (if this is desired).
Best regards,
