The fault was on my side. facepalm.jpg

Setting EnableFastInstall = 0, resolved the problem. I am so embarrassed !
Next time I should ....READ THE F***ING MANUAL ! Sorry guys.

Anyways, EnableFastInstall should be set to zero by default. Me thinks it's proper.

What do you think?
It's all up to you mate. Now it works as it should but if you catch some time you could add that additional key. Why not have both after all.

@Cesar mate,

is there an option to set a custom icon for the executable shortcuts which are placed in the Group and desktop. The installer picks the default exe icon.

You're quick as always.

It won't budge mate. It's still placing the default icon. Dunno.

Code:
[Executable1]

Name=Play House of Ashes
Exe=HouseOfAshes.exe
ExePath=0
ShortcutProt=1
RunAsAdmin=0
Icon={app}\HouseOfAshes.ico

Edit: If it needs some huge script rewriting then leave it as it is. It's not that important.

Edit 2: Ok, I have managed it by disabling the executable key and created the shortcuts in the custom shortcuts section. But now the 'create shortcut on desktop' box is disabled.

Code:
//[Executable1]

Name=Play House of Ashes
Exe=HouseOfAshes.exe
ExePath=0
ShortcutProt=1
RunAsAdmin=0

Code:
[CustomShortcuts]


Shortcut6={group}\Play House of Ashes; Destination:{app}\HouseOfAshes.exe; IconFile:{app}\HouseOfAshes.ico
Shortcut7={commondesktop}\Play House of Ashes; Destination:{app}\HouseOfAshes.exe; IconFile:{app}\HouseOfAshes.ico

Btw, guys. Maybe it's a stupido question but how do you generate external MD5 checksum files ? Which tools do you use ? Thanks

Personally I use HashCheck to create MD5/Sha* files.

But you can use QuickSFV too for that purpose.

Thanks, Kaktor.

Ok, since I've never used external checksum files before and this thread is huge, where does this file go if I want to files be checked after the installation ? Setup folder ? I can't get it executed.

Edit: Ok, I got it working. I placed the sucker ( .MD5 file ) next to the script but in this post (#854) was the solution. Cesar mate, you have not fixed the script yet ! Btw, my script version is CIU 3.0.0.1.b9.u4 (2022.12.30).

Just edit line 178 of the script replacing "!=" with "==" (see in green color).
Code:
#if defined(CREATOR) || (Trim(ReadIni(IniFile, "HashSettings", "EnableHash", "1")) == "1")

Hm, I can't make a video (videoAR.mp4) appear before autorun page kicks in. Something to act as a splash screen. I've tried everything but the setup won't call this process.

Code:
[VideoPlayerAR]

Left=10
Top=10
Width=898
Height=480

FrameLeft=20
FrameTop=20
FrameWidth=1280
FrameHeight=1024

Mute=0
Loop=0
Volume=100
Stretch=0
Track=internal
//Source1=

That's because VideoAR will be played on Autorun screen

There is no way to play a video as splash image.

Thanks Kaktor for you quick answer. It's a shame. It could have been a nice feature.

Edit: I have converted the mp4 video file into gif and named it as splashAR.gif. Works but there are sometimes flickers.

- Fixed not to display decimal point in space required labels on Components, Tasks and SelectDir pages when values are integers.
- Fixed getting the correct VRAM value on some laptops (Value is now read from Windows registry).
  >> After this correction, VRAM may not be correctly detected when using graphics cards in SLI/Crosfire.
- Changed name of key OnlyLabel= to OnlyLabelClick= (It is necessary that the label is being displayed).
  >> This key only serves to disable the click outside the label area even if it is inside the button image area.
- Changed name of the key Exe= to ExeFile= in [Executable#] section.
- Changed name of the key Icon= to IconFile= in [Executable#] section.
- Added new key IconIndex= to [Executable#] section to choice index image if IconFile= is a executable file.
- Added new key ShowMaintenanceAlways= in [InterfaceSettings] section.
  >> This option is active by default, but if you use value 0, when you run "Setup.exe" after all components or tasks are already installed.
  >> It will not display the maintenance page, displaying the uninstall page directly.
- Added new "Repair" option on maintenance page that allows to re-install previously installed items.
- Added new key ShowImage= in all buttons sections and group buttons section.
  >> If use value 0 in this key disable the loading of the button image loading a transparent image (It is necessary that the label is being displayed).

  >> The corresponding item will be disabled if the key value does not match.
- Added new keys Component= and Language= to the [Task#] section.
  >> The corresponding item will be disabled if the key value does not match.
- Added new keys Component=, Task= and Language= to the [Launch#] section.
  >> The corresponding item will be disabled if the key value does not match.
- Added new keys Component=, Task= and Language= to the [Executable#] section.
  >> These 3 new keys will be analyzed and the creation of shortcuts or AddToGameExplorer will only be done for the executable that matches the key information.
  >> After installed, only the play buttons will be shown on the autorun page that match with information about components, tasks and language.
- Added new key CreateShortcut= to the [Executable#] section.
  >> This key allows you to deactivate the creation of shortcuts for the executable of the current section.
  >> This will allow you to attach a Play button to the executable that the shortcut will be created on.
- Added support for new Edit.bmp image to delimit the OnMouse access area when using DirectoryEditOnMouse=1.
- Added support for hexadecimal result using "0x" in GetLangNR function like below:
  >> Example to english language use GetLangNR('0x') to return hexadecimal format 0x409, GetLangNR('$') to return hexadecimal format $409 or GetLangNR('') to return decimal value 1033.
- Removed key Type= from [Play#Button] sections.
  >> Now the "Type" information will be inherited from the [Executable#] section appended from the ExecutableID= key in the [Play#Button] sections.
Thanks to CÚsar

CIU 3.0.0.1.b9.u5 (Hotfix 1)

CIU_3.0.0.1.b9.u5 hotfix 1 fixes a compilation error that locks the compiler in preprocessing mode when using more than 1 executables in INTERNAL mode (mode without Setup.bin).
The same error also compromised the use of PNG images as icons in UWP games.
Thanks to user @mausschieber for reporting the bug.
