View Full Version : Multiple instances of setup.exe

05-19-2004, 10:33 AM

I migrated an installscript project from IS Pro 5.5 to IS DevStudio 9. This is a wrapper script which triggers invidual product installation (uses launchappandwait()). After I had resolved the migration issues and got the install binaries, when I run it, I see two instances of setup.exe which causes one of the individual installation to display a dialog box (multiple instances of setup.exe running. Please close it). I'm not able to figure out what is causing this problem. Can somebody provide me pointers to this problem?

I've analyzed the cause of the problem.

The subdirectories for individual applications that were lauched
the directory name was not picked up (even thought they were defined in a header file). The setup.exe in the same directory got launched resulting in multiple instances. With migration, it required explicit information in the string table. Once included, things started working.
