View Full Version : Creating patch installers, reading the setup.ilg

07-30-2003, 09:25 AM
Hello all,

I'm looking for some guidance on creating patch installers using ISPro6.31. I have been creating patch installers for my main products, and using the ComponentUpdate() function for transferring the data. The problem I am having is that the setup log (setup.ilg) is rewritten with the SRCDIR and SRCDISK locations of my patch installer. This causes problems when we perform a Repair on the original install because the SRCDIR and SRCDISK can no longer be located (they are deleted automatically because the patch installer is a self-extracting exe and the SRCDIR is written to the temporary directory on the disk).

Is there a way that I can prevent my patch installers from writing the temporary SRCDIR and SRCDISK values to the setup log?

Are u using the same PRODUCT_GUID for both the main installation and the patch installers?
