I've been developing a new installer and I have hit a problem. When I open the install script in Advanced Designer mode, I can select of the left panels (Project, InstallerUI, Organization, Pre-Install, Install, Post-Install, Pre-Uninstall, Post-Uninstall, Build). But the panel on the right doesn't refresh if I choose a different option. The buttons in the right panel still work and the program is still responsive. It just doesn't refresh the right panel. For example, when I start a script, I can choose Install to see what files are being installed. However, if I click on Pre-Install after that, I still see only the Install option. The Pre-Install choices don't come up. If I shut down and start the installer engine again, I can choose Pre-Install and see that showing up. Now however, choosing Install doesn't show me the files.

I held the Ctrl key down to open the debug window and got the following error :

No VM Pack files exist in this directory

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you manually altered your .iap_xml files?

I haven't. And I have talked to my other colleagues and neither have they.

And I forgot to add.. the same behavior is happening for every script I open now.

One more question then: did you update your IA installation?

My colleagues may have updated it with the regular updates that IA 8 sends. Other than that, it has been always IA 8.
