The Basic Question & Answers NOTES: There's also a lot of good information at the following locations:. On under the 'InstallScript Samples' and the 'IS Pro Tools & Tips' sections. Q) How can I tell which version of Windows my InstallShield Professional setup is being ran on? Differentiating between the various versions of Windows is easy. They work out to be the following:. KEY: vMAJOR.MINOR = Windows Release. v4.0 = Windows NT 4.0.
v5.0 = Windows 2000. v5.1 = Windows XP x86. v5.2 = Windows XP x64 -or- Windows Server 2003. v6.0 = Windows Vista -or- Windows Server 2008.
v6.1 = Windows 7 -or- Windows Server 2008 R2. v6.2 = Windows 8.0 -or- Windows Server 2012. v6.3 = Windows 8.1 -or- Windows Server 2012 R2 NOTE: For compatibility, InstallShield actually still sees this OS as 'v6.2'.). v10.0 = Windows 10 -or- Windows Server 2016 (Expected Q3 2016 Release) NOTE: For compatibility, InstallShield actually still sees this OS as 'v6.2'.). This can be cross-checked from you setup using the GetSystemInfo(OSMAJOR, nResult, szResult) and GetSystemInfo(OSMINOR, nResult, szResult) calls within InstallShield Professional.
Q) How can I tell which edition of Windows my InstallShield Professional setup is being ran on? Unfortunately, differentiating between the various editions of a release is NOT as easy. For example, detecting Home Edition vs Professional. Now I've personally not implemented such checks in my setups, but based on my research, I'm told the easiest way is to call the GetVersionEx Windows API.
If the VERSUITEPERSONAL flag is set in the OSVERSIONINFOEX structure, then it's Home Edition. For more information on this call and the associated structure, check out. Q) Which version of InstallShield Professional supports Windows XP?

A) An.MSI file is not executable by itself. You must run the following: msiexec.exe /i msiname.msi The resulting code being LaunchAppAndWait( ^ 'msiexec.exe', ' /i msiname.msi', WAIT). Q) How can I have a single executable for my InstallShield Professional setup?
A) You can either InstallShield's free PackageForTheWeb utility to do this, or simply change your project's media to make use of the built-in Packaging option. Q) With packaged media, how can I pass command-line arguments to the underlying InstallShield Professional setup? A) In the packaged scenario, you need to preceed the setup's internal switches with a -a, meaning additional, so that the wrapper properly passes them down to the underyling IS setup. Therefore, in the case of trying to run a setup in silent mode, you would run the following: -a -s. Q) With packaged media, how can I retrieve the package's original location from my underlying InstallShield Professional setup? A) Due to the packaging process, the system variable SRCDIR will contain the temporary path from which your InstallShield Professional setup is extracted and ran. Therefore, you would instead rely on the system variable PACKAGELOCATION as it would contain the original location of the package.
