  • Why does this not work??? bug in SUF?

    http://www.jassing.com/temp/test.zip

    this contains the .sf6 file & "temp.txt" (which is the only file in the project)

    it has 3 screens: welcome, ready,finished.
    temp.txt is installed to %RunTimeDir%
    one action "Before Installing" exist.
    assign variable "%RunTimeDir% = %SysDir%"

    when you run the resulting installer, you get "Cannot create directory c:\winnt\system32" (or whatever your sysdir is....)

    I believe the problem is that you have a carriage return in your Assign Value action. If you look at the "Value" field, and press the down arrow, you will notice that you have a line after %SysDir%. This is causing the error I believe. If you delete the line, I suspect everything will work fine.

      ah! thank you.. once again..
      other var's that I assign, seem to "trim" it up; is this only an issue for file install var's?

      Thanks.. (now, if only I could re-attach all this hair)

        It will definitely affect an install destination because a carriage return in a folder name is invalid. However it would likely affect many other instances. I doubt that anything is being trimmed up. A carriage return will not exist in your standard Assign Value action unless you explicitly enter one.
