View Full Version : QuickPatch not listed in ARP?

03-03-2005, 11:15 AM
I am testing QuickPatches with IS10.5 German Professional Edition.

My QuickPatch has the property "allow uninstall".
I included the MSI3.0 installer to the patch.
I run my tests on WindowsXP SP2, which should have MSI3.0.
In the ARP dialog I checked the flag "show updates".

My problem is, that there is no entry for my QuickPatch in Add/Remove Programs (ARP).
The only effect of my patch in ARP is, that the original entry of my product has the changed version number a configured in my QuickPatch.

What is required for a QuickPatch to be listed in ARP?
What is required for a QuickPatch to allow it to be unInstalled?

This question is in the wrong forum. Please post in the InstallShield 10.5 - Windows Installer Projects forum.

You may want to try the Patch Design view instead of QuickPatch. That may yield different results.

My project is of type "InstallScript MSI" - so i think this forum is appropriate. Anyway - I'll repost it as suggested.

Regarding full using the PatchDesign View: I am using QuickPatch by decision, as I do not want to have a new build of the complete system in order to create a patch based on MSI-Diffs. It is a requirement to have only resources in my patch and no executable at all - therefor there must be no complete build in order to be sure, that no changed executable gets included in the patch by accident.
