View Full Version : Tip for those using Automation

07-17-2008, 02:04 PM
Just want to post a quick tip that may prove beneficial to other users, regarding Automation for InstallShield 2009.

Inside my old InstallShield 2008 projects I have some Visual Basic script which specifies "IswiAuto14.ISWiProject" to create an instance of the InstallShield COM object:

Dim pInstaller
Set pInstaller = CreateObject("IswiAuto14.ISWiProject")

Please note that the string passed to CreateObject( ) must be changed to "IswiAuto15.ISWiProject" for InstallShield 2009.

Thanks for posting this tip!

I'd like to add that you can find this and other useful tips about upgrading from InstallShield 2008 and earlier to InstallShield 2009 in the InstallShield 2009 upgrade KB article:
Q200151: Upgrading Projects to InstallShield 2009 (http://kb.acresso.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=Q200151)

A link to that KB article, along with some other InstallShield 2009 KB articles and documents, is also available in the Read Me First sticky at the top of this forum.
