Help with Write Registry

Postby mdavtec » Thu Feb 13, 2020 5:57 pm

Not sure what I'm missing, but following code doesn't work.

Code: Select all

Write Registry Key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL14.TEST\MSSQLServer\SuperSocketNetLib\Tcp\IPAll\TcpDynamicPorts, 11422 (permanent)
Apply Install

Set Variable SQLTCPDynamicPN to
Read Registry Key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL14.TEST\MSSQLServer\SuperSocketNetLib\Tcp\IPAll\TcpDynamicPorts into SQLTCPDynamicPN
MessageBox: SQL Port, TcpDynamicPorts:$SQLTCPDynamicPN$;
Comment: This would still show the old value not 11422.

If I run the installation again, then it would change the value in the registry. Looks like 'Apply Install', when called 2nd time, it works.
I plan to do this for with 'Set x64 bit mode'. And I've tried that but same result.
Any suggestion? Thanks.

The code looks to be correct. Are you sure Apply Install successfully completes on first time you run the package?
