List of Bug Fixes in InstallAware 18.08

From 18.07:

The new SQL Server 2014 RTM runtime now replaces the old SQL Server 2014 CTP2 beta.

Code signing for the actual MSI payload is now operational.

Visual C++ 11 runtimes with ATL, MFC, C++ AMP, and OpenMP are now available.

From 18.06:

SSD detection on RAID arrays and virtual machines failed.

From 18.05:

Some controls misinterpreted arrow key navigation as tablet pen flicks.

Some older AMD and Intel CPUs occasionally caused failures during the loading of setup dialogs.

Microsoft Surface Pro and Surface Pro 2 hardware were being misreported as virtual hardware.

From 18.04:

The MaskEdit control, when a mask was specified, would immediately skip to the next dialog.

From 18.03:

Additional intermittent out of memory errors during compression have been fixed.

The SQL Server 2012 RTM (Denali) runtime had been accidentally removed from the distribution.

Sophisticated IIS 7 configurations gave rise to occasional issues.

IIS 7 configurations now support Unicode.

Tablet pen flicks were unsupported in both the IDE and the setup engine. Now you may flick your way through setup wizard screens.

The IDE visual Registry designer displayed the correct 64 bit registry keys/values but failed to add the correct 64 bit registry keys/values, instead adding the 32 bit counterparts.

The IDE visual Registry designer failed to edit existing registry keys/values in a project due to the expanded parameters of the Write Registry command in InstallAware 18, supporting remote computers for the first time.

From 18.02:

InstallAware required .NET 2.x-3.x on Windows 8.0-8.1 to obtain assembly information and build MSI databases using the Install Assembly command.

From 18.01:

Flash controls on dialogs with Aero Glass enabled were inoperative.

Visual Studio Add-In generated projects, including all projects built using the Free Edition of InstallAware, showed dialogs for license and readme files, even when these files were not included with setup.

The setup resource packing process included a duplicate copy of each plug-in runtime DLL, potentially exponentially increasing the size of the setup resource binary when multiple calls to plug-ins were made in the setup script (even for identical plug-ins).

The default IDE window position did not fit on small resolution displays.

From 18.00:

Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 R2 detection fixed.

The setup self-extractor now correctly displays error messages such as running out of disk space.

The Glass component can now be successfully deleted from a form.

Occasional out of memory errors during compression have been fixed.
