HOTFIX: InstallAnywhere 2014 Service Pack 1 HotFix A


This is InstallAnywhere 2014 Service Pack 1 Hotfix.


InstallAnywhere 2014 SP1 HotFix A addresses the following issues:

IOA-000066647If a shortcut is configured to use a custom .ico file, the correct path is now used for this .ico file at run time. Previously in certain cases, various issues occurred. For example, for a Create Alias, Link, Shortcut action that ran on a Windows-based target system, the shortcut was not created and the log file included an error for the creation of the shortcut. In some cases, the installer encountered a "ZeroGcz: No zip file found for entry" error.
IOJ-1720624If a Create Uninstaller action is configured to use a custom .ico file that is present in a folder inside the IA_PROJECT_DIR directory, the installer no longer encounters a related run-time error. In addition, the uninstaller launcher is now installed at run time without error.
IOJ-1722811When the Create JRE VM Pack Wizard attempts to create a JRE VM pack from a Solaris JRE on a Windows-based or Linux-based system, the creation of the JRE VM pack no longer fails.
IOJ-1563323When the Create JRE VM Pack Wizard creates a JRE VM pack from a 64-bit Windows JVM, the resulting JRE VM pack now has the vm.platform.flavor property value set to win64, not win32. In addition, the JRE VM pack is available in the VM to Bundle with Installer list for a pure 64-bit Windows-based build target in the Build Installers view.
IOJ-1718993The InstallAnywhere Advanced Designer can now be resized. Previously, if you attempted to resize the Advanced Designer window, the window snapped back to its previous size.
IOJ-1678690The Language Selection Panel did not display when running the installer with Java 8. Debug output includes the following message:
