Second Install Splash Screen (IA Studio X12)

Postby wwanko » Thu Jul 02, 2020 8:29 am

Hi everybody,

I just updated from IA 8 to IA X12 and was opening my setups in the new version.
Everything looks great so far except one thing:

As soon as a Setup is launched there are two splash screens. In the old IA 8 the splashscreens 1 and 2 looked like this:

Now with the new X12 the second splash screen looks like it wouldn't belong to the installer. See

Mind you, I don't have any issues with the text or the IA logo. I just want its background to be the same as the first splash.

I even tried some new Setups with different themes but the second splash alwas looks the same.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks
Wolfgang

It's not possible to override the Dialog Theme of the second initialization dialog.
However, you may set the CLOAK_DIALOG_LOADER = TRUE (pre-defined compiler variable) to suppress the setup loader dialog (the second initialization dialog).

It may be useful to set the "CLOAK_DIALOG_LOADER" variable in combination with "MIN_EXTRACT = AUTO".

I suggest you to have a look at the IA documentation for important details about those pre-defined compiler variables.

This pointed me into the right direction! Thank you Francesco, problem solved!
Now I just have to read the rest of the documentation and catch up on all the other great things this software can do...
