Stand Alone Builder Install side-by-side versions on a CI Build Server

Jump to solution

On a Continuous Integration build server, we are running the Stand Alone Builder using the InstallShield COM Automation Interface within a C# program to orchestrate the creation of msi and setup.exe packages for deployment. The SAB version currently installed is 21.0 using ISWiAuto21. I am upgrading to current, 2020 R1, 26.0, ISWiAuto26. Because all of the build packages will not be immediately updated, I need to support both the 21 and the 26 Automation interfaces.

Can I install the SAB 2020 r1 side-by-side on the same server as the currently installed SAB 2014? Will I be able to refer to either of the COM Automation libraries successfully?

Thanks.

Hi @llklein ,

 

Yes, you can install multiple SAB side by side. And you can refer and create the corresponding COM Automation interface objects.

got it  ==> 

Future versions of the Standalone Build will have new ProgIDs and new GUIDs. This enables you to install multiple versions of the Standalone Automation Interface side by side on the same build machine.

Thanks.
