Unable to create a build when in trial mode

Works as expected:
1. Create new project in "simple" mode
2. Add a text document to the files
3. Save project
4. Build a single MSI
Result:
The build is created.

Unexpected result:
1. Create new project in "architect" mode
2. Accept entering trial mode
3. Add a text document to the files
4. Save project
5. Build single MSI
Result:
The following message appears: "The application ran into a problem that it couldn't handle. Sorry for the inconvenience."

With the following details:
[EXCEPTION_UNHANDLED] (0xe06d7363) at address [0x76b998b2]

Advanced Installer 21.7 build 14e4fceb
*** Stack Trace (x86) ***

[0x76b998b2] RaiseException()

[0x02075ccb] -----
[0x00070000] MODULE_BASE_ADDRESS

Closing this error will close the project and no build is created. I saw similar error messages on this board but none of them seemed to be the same issue as mine. Is this intended behaviour for trail mode and the error message is just tripping me up?

Re: Unable to create a build when in trial mode

Hi,

UPDATE - this is a bug introduced by a recent WinUI update in Advanced Installer.

We are working on a release to fix this right now. Until then you can still build your trial projects from our command line or using our Visual Studio integration.

Code: Select all

<install folder>advancedinstaller.com /build <your project path>
You can also contact us via email at support at advancedinstaller dot com and request a temporary license key. Registering your trial version with this key will avoid the bug.

Regards,
Bogdan

Re: Unable to create a build when in trial mode

Hello everyone,

If you are facing this, another easy workaround would be setting the following registry entry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Caphyon\Advanced Installer\Settings --> UseHtmlSmallHelpPage set to "1".
