You may not be able to appreciate that right now of course, because you're hurt by your own bad design ;) PS. In the future I would appreciate that you refrain from calling any of my work a bad design until you had a chance to examine it. I have 20 years experience in software design with over 6 ye...

Its actually a carefully made design choice which enables you to share web media blocks between different setup projects. ... So you may want to think twice before calling something a bug or bad design. While in your specific case it might have worked to your disadvantage, its the better choice for...

Really? That confuses me. Why would it matter where the original source was between 2 versions of an install if the files will be installed to the same location? The Weblock is the abstraction. Why during the install process would the installer care what location the files came from? Its not like th...

It has never worked for us. The first time we ran into this problem we had upgraded from 6.0 to 6.5 of InstallAware and thought it was due to the different versions of the engine. I just found out yesterday that the disk we created back in the beginning of June is no longer working with the new webb...

I think there is more to it than that. I just did another test with two different builds of our application 2 days apart using the same version of InstallAware (6.5). The Setup.exe from the first build will not work with webblocks from the second build. There are no differences to the InstallAware v...

MAJOR PROBLEM: You changed compression settings between Vers

Somewhere between versions 6.0 and 6.5 you guys changes the settings used to compress the setups. Now we have a major problem in that the Setup.exe (compiled with Installaware version < 6.5) on our CD does not know how to extract our webblocks on our server (created with InstallAware 6.5). What exac...

If you mean SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition and you are using it in a Desktop app (not on a mobile device) the easiest way is to include just these dlls with your application:

sqlcea30.dll
sqlceer30en.dll
sqlceme30.dll
sqlcecompact30.dll
sqlceoledb30.dll
sqlceqp30.dll
sqlcese30.dll

Although technically correct that doesn't add to our conversation here. The controls that InstallAware uses are Delphi VCL controls which are not Standard Window controls either. What is needed is for the paint routines for those VCL controls to be rewritten to support the glow effect (possibly via ...

Go To Tools | Edit Global Strings

Select the language (English in my case) and then Initialization Text.

Look for Are you sure you wwant to cancel? Double click it and change to the text you want.

I haven't yet because the rest of the controls don't properly support glass. For example you can't get the glow behind text on glass so that it is readable.

Did anybody experiment with the Alternate SQL plug-in available on the Plug-Ins section of this forum? Yes I tried to but in my case it has a totally different problem. It requires a script that must be in a webblock. I am doing a scan and test connection to SQL server before my Welcome Dialog is s...

Trent,

You mentioned earlier that you had a .net installer class that worked. Can you PM the code or details?
