View Full Version : IDS_SUITE_PACKAGEFAIL - ...Do you want to continue the installation?

I have a Suite with 4 InstallScript MSI packages. If I cancel out of any of my install packages the message is “Are you sure you want to quit?”
The suite then prompts “The installation of <package Name> appears to have failed. Do you want to continue the installation?”

Seems odd that to do the same thing (quit) one requires an answer of “Yes” and the other requires an answer of “No” ?
So you always have to read the question before affirming!

It is simple enough to change IDS_SUITE_PACKAGEFAIL from "The installation of %s appears to have failed. Do you want to continue the installation?"
to
“The installation of <package Name> appears to have failed. Do you want to quit the installation?”
But if we are going to do that then we really need to change the logic on the buttons too! As it is now one of the buttons sets ISInstallStatus, so if we reverse the question we would need to reverse that too, otherwise ISInstallStatus is not correct!
As far as I can tell, that dialog is not exposed to me for modification.
Any ideas?
