  • SUF 6.0 Trial

    i've just downloaded the SUF 6.0 trial, i had the SUF 5 trial before to test your tool. I was very pleased to see that at SUF 5 i can use such screens like "Variables" to find files and if i found them simply set the variable to TRUE. Now i'm tying out SUF 6 and i asked myself, where are these screens gone? did you removed them? do i now have to do all this with the script? when i have to do so i could use install shield too.
    can i aktivate these old, very good screens or do i am only to blind to see them.

    i loved the old desing but now... maybe not every time the new version is better

    i hope you can help me with my Problem

    This can now be done by actions. The action concept is IHMO much more powerful than the SUF5 concept.

    Check the manual

      You could do this with a "Search For File" action.

      If you want to add this action go to: DESIGN -> ACTIONS and select a timing tab, you will probably want to select the Startup Tab.

      Then add a "Search For File" action by pressing the "Add Action" button and browsing to: File Information -> Search For File. This will bring up the "Search For File" action properties.

      The "Search For File" action will set your variable to: "a semi-colon delimited list of paths where the file was found. For example, "C:\Program Files\Yourfile.exe;C:\Backup\Yourfile.exe".

      So in your case set up the action like this:

      Store result in variable: %SearchResult%
      Default value: FALSE
      Search For File: MyFile.txt

      No instead of checking if your variable is equal to TRUE (like in Setup Factory 5.0) simply check if your variable does not equal FALSE.

      (I.E. “%SearchResult%” <> FALSE)

      I hope that this helps, if you need more information please post.
