Suite Progress Bar

When installing a Basic MSI package the progress bar moves to the halfway point during Staging, but then stops there during Installation. Is there something I have to do to make it continue progressing during installation?

Re: Suite Progress Bar

Is your progress bar tracking ISInstallProgress or ISParcelProgress? (See "Advanced UI and Suite/Advanced UI Property Reference" in the help.)

Re: Suite Progress Bar

Looks like ISInstallProgress but I don't see an option for ISParcelProgress.

Same Behavior for Me

FWIW,
I observe the same behavior (not new; it has always been that way).
I too am using ISInstallProgress and don't see an option for ISParcelProgress in the drop down list.
I did type in ISParcelProgress.. Then the progress bar does not proceed at all.

Re: Suite Progress Bar

I've found the following in the help system:

Progress Bar—A progress bar is a dynamic bar that fills up in response to a property such as the ISInstallProgress property.
Progress Circle—A progress circle is a pair of dynamic circles that fill up in response to two properties: a property such as ISParcelProgress, which indicates the completion percentage of the current package, and a property such as ISInstallProgress, which indicates the completion percentage of the overall entire installation. The outside progress circle typically shows the overall progress, and the inside progress bar typically shows the progress of the entire package.


This suggest that ISInstallProgress is the correct property to use, but something is broken somewhere.

Re: Suite Progress Bar

So, is this still broken? Do I have to fork out for yet another IS update to get a fix?

Re: Suite Progress Bar

Actually, using the property "ISParcelProgress" works for me. The progress bar behaves the way it should for each package in the suite.
