Build machine creates unlicensed installers

Hi, We have a single user IA X6 Studio license and are using a separate VM based build machine from the real machine on which we develop the IA project. From time to time, not always, the build machine creates installers that give the unlicensed message: "This installation was created with Inst...

Splash screen appears twice?

Hi, I'm running IA X6 and have just added a splash screen to my project for the first time. The screen appears as expected but then disappears and reappears before finally closing ahead of my first dialogue. I can't find a way of changing this to the normal "splash screen appears once" beh...

Re: Relative Paths To Source Files?

Hi, Thanks for adding the relative paths feature to IA 10.10, I've converted all our hard coded paths to relative paths and with one exception everything is looking very good. My one outstanding difficulty is in the Icon File Path field of Create Shortcut. If I put a relative path here the icon does...

Re: Native Mode Product Upgrade

Hi, Having re-read my post it seems that mis-directed you by saying that this is caused by changing the "Project Name"; I actually meant the "Product Name" on the Project Properties tab. Sorry! :oops: I'm pleased to report that I don't have an issue with changing the "publis...

IsMsiSetupInstalled - Native mode?

Hi, I have an installer (running in MSI mode) that uses IsMsiSetupInstalled to determine whether a pre-requisite install is present on the system. It runs fine if the pre-requisite is compiled in MSI mode but won't detect it if it is compiled in Native mode. I've tried giving the pre-requisite's pro...

Hi, I want to create a prouct initial install and a set of upgrades that for example follow the naming sequence: ASCOM Platform, ASCOM Platform (SP1), ASCOM Platform (SP2) etc. and have these names show up in add/remove programs so the user knows exactly what is installed. I'm using the latest 10.10...

Re: Unable to get assembly information...

Hi, I had the same issue when I installed 10.3 . The trial download worked fine but the assembly information issue appeared after I ran the license executable from 10.0 . I resolved the problem by uninstalling completely and reinstalling the trial followed by generating a new license file and then a...

Re: Relative Paths To Source Files?

Peter, Andy,

Thanks for your replies, I'll try editing the paths manually and look forward to seeing this feature supported in the Design Tab GUI in an upcoming release.

Hi, We have an InstallAware project located in a subversion repository, with a number of developers cheking out working copies.
