View Full Version : Display Name in Add/Remove blank

I have a installation built under Pro 6.10 that sets up the registry uinstallation information under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\<GUID> correctly, at first.

But, when the install gets to the ComponentMoveData, the DisplayName parameter is reset to "" and the -UNINST is 'removed' from the end of the UninstallString parameter.

I am on a WIN 98 box. Two builds before, this did not happen. Then I had a problem with my PC and had to rebuild it. I thought I got it rebuilt to earlier config, but it would appear something isn't quite right.

So, what would cause the InatallationInfo, DeinstallStart and RegDBSetItem to set up/modify the registry entries correctly at first, but when the ComponentMoveData is run to change the entries.

****** NOTE *******
I was at v6.10. I updated to v6.12 and it fixed this problem. Interesting.
