Re: Installers

Yes, sometimes I got same issue even for my own msi installers :-)
Kill all processes or services that relate to msi installer and then install the msi using a file context menu (right click and install).

Re: Installers

No, don´t create your own MSI. What we were talking about in past was free NSI installer that produces exe file installer. Yeah, it fits to this topic too :-)

Re: Installers

I have this ""Another Installation In Progress Please Complete Installation Before Continuing" :PP
I have not visible!

Kill all processes or services that relate to msi installer

Any precision of that ? I see nothing process about msi in the task manager (Ctrl + Alt + Del)

Does the NSI prog transform a "cad.msi" in "cad.exe" ?
Is beautiful that please without concept!

Re: Installers

Pilou, I think you should have to look for "Windows installer" or something like that in the process manager.
Don´t bother with NSI (NSIS). It is not a program that can convert msi to exe. It is an application using that a developer can create his own installer and as a result he gets exe file. There are plenty of programs that help developers build MSI and EXE installers like InstallShield, Wise, NSIS, Tarma and many others. Simple say, if a developer creates an application that consist from more files and wants to allow a user to choose destination folder or setup other things it is suitable to create and installer for the application. I mentioned NSIS, because I use it and like it. NSIS installer uses NSI script language and script system. But these things relate to developers not users :-)

Taron, maybe this discussion deserves its own thread?

Installers

Yes, Lemi, you are absolutely right! This makes an excellent thread, especially for me, actually! :ob

I've downloaded the NSIS already and will have a closer look at it. Thus far it looks VERY promising! :hyper:
