Minor upgrade initial message box text change

Hi,
When a setup.exe runs in minor upgrade, the first message box to be displayed is "This setup will perform an upgrade of . Do you want to continue?” . This text is not seen anywhere in the ism or msi. Is it possible to edit this text?

Thanks,
Sooraj

Re: Minor upgrade initial message box text change

You are correct that the mentioned text is not in the ISM or MSI file. It is coming from the Flexera generated Setup.exe. If you open your compiled Setup.exe in Visual Studio and go to the string table you will see that

String ID: 1128 - This setup will perform an upgrade of '%s'. Do you want to continue?

You should not attempt to modify the compiled Setup.exe - but that is where the given message is coming from.

I hope that helps some.

A bit more info - You can go into the Upgrades section in the IDE and then under "Prepare Setup For Upgrade Scenarios" if you go to the Common tab there are radio buttons that let a person choose if they want to see this Prompt or not.

At least you should be able to avoid the prompt if you want to.

Hope that helps some.
