  • Update Variable Not Set Properly

    I've got 4 variable defined in a client configuration file, namely:

    All of these with the exception of the %Developer% variable are simple Registry string values, except %Developer% which has it's "Set variable to "TRUE" if key exists" option checked.

    When the update program runs it is evaluating %Developer% to true when there is no such registry entry.

    I con't replicate this. What do you have as the default? When I set this up to read a bogus registry value with True if exists it returns the default.

      Here's the debug info


      Here's the info in the debug listing. There is NO Developer registry entry for this Main and sub key:

      START: Perform action: Read from Registry
      Variable name = %Developer%
      Default value = FALSE
      Main key = HKEY_CURRENT_USER
      Sub key = Software\Better Built Software\EID
      Value name = Developer
      TRUE if exists = TRUE
      Auto-expand if REG_EXPAND_SZ = TRUE
      (On Error) User notification mode = None
      (On Error) Action = Continue

      SET VARIABLE: %Developer% = FALSE
      SET VARIABLE: %Developer% = TRUE
      SET VARIABLE: %LastErrorNum% = 0
      SET VARIABLE: %LastCommand% = 12
      SET VARIABLE: %LastErrorMsg% =
      SET VARIABLE: %LastErrorDetails% =
      END: Perform action: Read from Registry

      Hope this helps.
