Re: Patching Installs

Others might have made different experiences, but after trying it a couple of times we gave up going the patching road. For us it wasn't worth the hassle. At the one side the patches turned out to be larger than the normal setup, at the other, the uninstall process is part of the setup and thus no b...

Re: Batch file is not running using Run Program Commnd

I think under Run Program you need to put C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe
and as Command Line Parameters /c call <pathtobatchfile>

Re: "Get Installed State for"

Hi Anja, search the registry for the product ID of the setup and delete all of its entries. The most important one seems to be HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\MimarSinan\InstallAware\Ident.Cache\<productID> Preferably, if your customer still has available the setup of the previously installe...

Cancelled setup leaves entry of previous version

I'm using the latest version of InstallAware on Windows 7 Pro. All newer projects are created as native setups. When a different version is installed over an existing one and the setup is cancelled after the uninstallation of the previous version, the entry in the list of installed programs goes &qu...

Re: Installer Prep Screen looks poor on 4K Display

I think this dialog has been neglected since its first creation, no matter of screen resolution. It's too small for it's content, at least when the start language isn't English. In most other languages the displayed string doesn't fit into its label. Right after this dialog there is another one, whi...

Re: Multiple problems with APPX Builder

After playing around with the settings for the setup I discovered that I had a leading zero in the version number that caused the first error message (error code was actually 108). With activated authentication I then get error 180. But we are using a valid sha2 certificate. So, that cannot be the r...

Multiple problems with APPX Builder

So far, I was only able to convert a very basic newly created native project, including only one executable, one help file and one shortcut, to an APPX package. Already the second try with our company name and a real name for the package produced an error 180. In our real life projects I already rem...

Build Appx for UWP and Windows 7

Under Windows 7 the menu item "Build Appx for UWP" is available, but when you click on it, you get the following dialog: Appx-Error.png The feature cannot be installed, because it's not offered in the setup dialog. I assume it's because you can only run it from Windows 10, but then I would...

Re: Write into Text File needs a 'no BOM' option

Dear Francesco, can you tell me a reason? Look, I don't care much anymore that InstallAware now writes its own files in UTF8 with BOM. Most users will have made the necessary adjustments by now. But I don't understand why you're forcing on us a file encoding with BOM for external files, while writin...

Re: Write into Text File needs a 'no BOM' option

Currently, the "write to text file" command only stores data using the UTF format. As I have already said previously; it is not a question of fixing it, but instead, to have this option with future IA versions. Several versions later this option is still not implemented. Files are still b...

Re: Animations and sliding - dissable

If I may throw in my 2 cents here, our customers didn't like this sliding effect either, and actually it only looks good with simple themes. As soon as one uses more graphically sophisticated themes the sliding begins to jitter and blur. So I had to go through all projects and disable the effect. So...
