I have recently started working on Installanywhere 2010.
We are trying to migrate our Installshield installer to Installanywhere.
I was looking at the implicit options available for upgrade with Installanywhere. I found that instance management has been added to the Installanywhere which takes care of the upgrade.
I made a sample project with version 220.127.116.11 and then created a higher version build 18.104.22.168.
In the advances settings, I have enabled the maintenance mode support and checked all its available options.
I have enabled Instance Management and limited it to a single instance.
I have selected to identify instance using location and subrevision.
I installed 22.214.171.124.
When I run the installer for 126.96.36.199 it presents me with an option of modifying the existing instance and Installanywhere is able to find the correct instance. But one I go to next step it gives an error sayingI ran the installer in debug mode and found the following error messages.An error occured while trying to manage the selected instance.
Can anybody explaing why this error is coming and how can I correct this?Code:ChooseBundledVMs: Unable to locate the VMPack Directory ZGUtil.getInputStream(): unable to load resource: uninstaller.properties java.io.FileNotFoundException: uninstaller.properties (The system cannot find th e file specified) at java.io.FileInputStream.open(Native Method) at java.io.FileInputStream.<init>(Unknown Source) at java.io.FileInputStream.<init>(Unknown Source) at ZeroGd.b(DashoA10*..) at ZeroGd.l(DashoA10*..) at com.zerog.ia.installer.LifeCycleManager.x(DashoA10*..) at com.zerog.ia.installer.LifeCycleManager.m(DashoA10*..) at com.zerog.ia.installer.LifeCycleManager.l(DashoA10*..) at com.zerog.ia.installer.LifeCycleManager.j(DashoA10*..) at com.zerog.ia.installer.LifeCycleManager.a(DashoA10*..) at com.zerog.ia.installer.Main.main(DashoA10*..) at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method) at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(Unknown Source) at sun.reflect.DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(Unknown Source) at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(Unknown Source) at com.zerog.lax.LAX.launch(DashoA10*..) at com.zerog.lax.LAX.main(DashoA10*..) ======================================================= Error while checking for instances An error occurred while trying to manage the selected instance =======================================================
I do not find this file on the system and why is the Installanywhere looking for a file?
Under the Install tab for the Uninstall $PRODUCT_NAME$ section I see there is an option to edit Uninstaller properties. Is it this same file? Do I need to configure it differently?
