View Full Version : Patch / Registry Problem

07-29-2002, 08:45 AM
My company is trying to automate InstallShield to eliminate errors caused by manually changing every time we need to update our product.

We have defined a variable [BUILDNUMRAPTOR] in the registry, and have created the corresponding property. The install automate program is correctly updating the value of the property, and when I install via Web Package, or from the files generated by the build directly, the correct registry entry is being written.

However, if I try to run a patch, it's not updating to the new registry value.

I have verified that the original package is putting a build 2 into that registry entry (using this variable). I have verified that the automate has updated the property value to 3. However, after running the update.exe, the registry value is still 2.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
