WriteLog Plugin

Postby zchris » Wed Sep 14, 2005 1:04 pm

I've added a WriteLog Plugin to the Camelot-InstallAware-Plugins package.

It is a simple plugin that will append the specified string with the current date and time to a logfile. If the path to the logfile is empty the command will be ignored.

The reason for this plugin is that I can't get the current date and time in InstallAware - otherwise the "Write to text file" command would be sufficient.

All plugins are free, small and don't have any runtime dependencies. The setup can be downloaded from http://www.camelot.co.at/files/dist/Camelot-InstallAware-Plugins.exe (contains EditFile, Eval and WriteLog)

Disclaimer: you are free to use these plugins for any purpose at your own risk.

Thank you very much for making this wonderful plug-in available! We'll soon have a dedicated plug-ins page on the site that will display all available plug-ins, themes, enhancements, and so on. Stay tuned :D

Every time i compiled my project I get an error, Error during build: Failed to compile plug-in action: WriteLog. Is there a fix for this?

Dear User,

Unfortunately, seems that developer is not supporting that plug in anymore.

By the way, have you tried using "Write to text file" IA command instead?

Hi,

Is there any news regarding the functionality of these plug-ins (Edit File, Write Log) in the newer versions of InstallAware?

If these are not supported anymore, what are my options?

regards,
MrZ

Dear MrZ,

currently, nothing more of what is already available with "Write into Text File" and "Read from Text File" IA commands.

Anyway, using the IA commands in sequence as follow,

- "Read from Text File"
- "Replace String
- "Write into Text File"

you should be able to do exactly the same.

Hope this helps you.

Regards.
