Dialog are not displaying.

My project developed in InstallShield 2008. We just migrated it into 2018. I don't have InstallShield 2008 setup.

But right now any dialogs are not displaying, no any error just returns -1 value, How can I check the reason to not display the dialog.

I am new in InstallShield the existing project developed by someone else. 

can anyone help me?

Re: Dialog are not displaying.

Hi @kumarrajesh8206 ,

 

What do you mean by dialogs not getting displayed?

  • Is it on runtime,meaning running setup and not seeing dialogs?If so try to run setup.exe with commandline:
    • Setup.exe /debuglog"C:\tmp\Log.log"(Path to Log file).Debug logs can help you identify the issue,you can attach here as well for us to help.
  • Is it on IDE level,on dialog editor view?If so,it might be due to some dll registration issue.Try reinstalling might fix the issue

Thanks,

Jenifer

Re: Dialog are not displaying.

Hi @kumarrajesh8206 ,

 

Which type of project it is?If it is of InstallScript/InstallScript MSI you can actually debug it.You can debug by:

  • Navigating to InstallScript View,on the editor top combo select Dialog Source
  • On the dialog combo,choose SdWelcome
  • Launch setup with debug option from the main menu

 

Thanks,

Jenifer
