Component Build Differences between AS 3.5 and 5.0

By Level 11 Flexeran

I am doing a side by side repackage of WinZip 8.0 on AdminStudio 3.5 and 5.0.

5.0 gave a specific registry key in "..\Software\Shortcuts" the root value of "-1" or "USER SELECTABLE"

Then in validation it generates an error (ICE57). The only other thing in the component appears to be start menu shortcuts.

AS 3.5 makes this registry key a CURRENT_USER key and does not generate ICE57.

Shouldn't the component builds done by the repackager be according to the ICE rules?

This change (to use -1 as the registry root) was made the default in AdminStudio 5 to reduce excessive auto-repairs of the shortcuts that were ocurring in AdminStudio 3.5 when the package was deployed per-user (the non-advertised shortcuts were causing auto-repair).

If you would like to override this behavior (you know your setup is for a single user only), you can set
in options.ini to return the the previous behavior.

Hope this helps,

Is it an expected behavior that ICE57 will fail in this case then?

To be certain, would you mind emailing me the MSI in question to my email address below? No media is needed, just the MSI, so that I can check it?
