Same Product code for different project type

Hi,

I have changed my project type from Installscript MSI to Install script project for multiple instance support.

So, the initial installer was created with Install script MSI type and I need it to get an upgrade using a new installer created by Installscript project. I kept the product code to be the same for both the project type.

but when I ran the new installer created by Install script project, it was going like a new installation and maintenance mode screen is not showing.

Anyone can suggest how to make it compatible with both project type? Thanks in advance.

with regards,

Sasikumar.A

Re: Same Product code for different project type

Hi @sasikumar ,

 

The mentioned scenario might not be possible directly because of how both project types deal with installers.There are few things to add here:

There are lot differences how InstallScript and InstallScript MSI deal with setups.Quick differences you can find here:

https://www.installationdeveloper.com/263/installscript-vs-installscript-msi/

As well when you say "I  have changed project from InstallScript MSI to InstallScript,i assume you used Project converters option which you could find under Project(Menu)->Project Converter.

Reference link:https://www.installationdeveloper.com/1930/how-to-convert-an-installscript-project-to-installscript-...

 

Though you can achieve it via installscript code by detecting the product and launching maintenance dialog.

 

Hope it helps,

Thanks,

Jenifer
