Table Record Reference Tracking

Jump to solution

Recently we started using the 2019 edition of AdminStudio which is the first version for us with "Table Record Reference Tracking" in the Direct Editor of the InstallShield. This feature makes using the Direct Editor for larger projects very, very, very (actually unusable) slow. Just an example: Loading the Component table with +/- 12000 rows takes several minutes.  The reference tracking data is also loaded when the information isn't showed. So hiding the information isn't sufficient. I can't discover a setting in the Tools->Options menu to disable this function.

Can this function be disabled somewhere/somehow?

I had an AdminStudio customer experience the same slowdown in MSI table loading in the InstallShield Editor as well.

@vdonga's suggestion of disabling the check significantly improves the table loading. Here's where to go:

Uncheck the Check for broken reference constraints checkbox, click OK, and then the table load time drops significantly.

Currently, there is no option to disable the Table Record Reference Tracking feature in InstallShield.

But, there is a WO with master issue # IOJ-1842645 is now with the engineering team to improve the performance of the Direct Editor.

In addition to the performance improvement it would be really appreciated if it can be disabled as well. I assume that wil result in the biggest improvement.

Sure,  I'll pass on this suggestion to the engineering team to have an option to disable Table Record Reference Tracking completely.
