Re: Rollback - integrate into the process

Dear Francesco, You are prtialy correct, custom actions can not be rolled back, not in Wise and (I think) not in any windows installation tool. let me be more clear: if I write a custom action to do something, and this action is somewhere in the installation flow, then Windows installer engine CAN N...

Re: Rollback - integrate into the process

Re: User data at install time

Hi Francesco, I looked at this sample project. as I understood, I have to do the "dirty" work, i.e. defining the variables, creating the dialog and its controls, and responsible of combining this all together to make it work (retriev all IP addresses of the server, for exsample, and put it...
