    Ok. I downloaded the latest Dependency module from your site and I can see that I had an outdated one without 8.1.

    I added Windows 10 to my edits. All should be well...

    Thanks!

    ps - I guess, this should have been in the module section.

    I am sorry, from the code you posted, I cannot see what actually happens, and what you expect to happen. This is still unclear to me.

    If you are using Setup Factory 9.5, then I expect the above code to return true for Windows 8.1 (6.3.9600), meaning that the dependency would be allowed. (I have not executed this code, just studied what you posted.)

    If you were using an older release of Setup Factory to run this code, which did not have support for Windows 8.1, then the action System.GetOSVersionInfo() could return incorrect info for Windows 8.1, such as 6.2.9200. In such a case, your script would not behave as you expect, because the values used for comparison are different to what you think they are - and you aren't logging them anywhere as a debugging aid.

    This is what is in the OS version detection script. I added the last section for 8 or higher. This works.

    But when you look at the normal, ending section for Windows 7 only, it should fail.
    >>> SNIPPP
    -- Check to see if this is a valid operating system for VC 2010 SP1 x86
    function isValidOS()
    SetupData.WriteToLogFile("Info\tVisual C++ 2010 SP1 (32-bit) Module: Entering compatible OS detection.\r\n",true);

    local tblOSInfo = System.GetOSVersionInfo();

    -- Failure check for less than Windows XP
    local nMajorVersion = String.ToNumber(tblOSInfo.MajorVersion);
    local nMinorVersion = String.ToNumber(tblOSInfo.MinorVersion);

    -- Helps debug new OS versions
    SetupData.WriteToLogFile("Info\tVisual C++ 2010 SP1 (32-bit) Module: Operating systems reported is "..nMajorVersion.."."..nMinorVersion..".\r\n",true );

    if ((nMajorVersion < 5) or ((tblOSInfo.MajorVersion == "5") and (nMinorVersion < 1))) then
    SetupData.WriteToLogFile("Info\tVisual C++ 2010 SP1 (32-bit) Module: Operating systems less than Windows XP SP3 are not supported.\r\n",true);
    return false;
    end

    -- Check Windows XP SP3 or later and not Starter Edition.
    if ((tblOSInfo.MajorVersion == "5") and (tblOSInfo.MinorVersion == "1")) then
    -- Check service pack.

    return true;

    If you want to send me your current project in a support ticket, I could have a look and see if I spot the error.

    I am using the latest 9.5.0.0

    When I look at the dependency code, it should fail. I added code for 6.2 and higher.

    What version of Setup Factory are you using? Can you attach the installation log files?

    I get this on Windows 8.1 x64 for the 32-bit dependency:

    The Windows version returned for 8.1 is 6.3. The installer failing SHOULD fail based on the code. Why does the other work???

    Crazy!

    I just rechecked, it is failing on all 8.1 systems.

  • VC++ 2010 Sp1 fails OS Dependency under Windows 8.1 ... at times

    I have two similar installer for related SKUs that install VC++ 2010 SP1 x86. They use the same module. On Windows 8.1, one works, the other fails due an insufficient version. Puzzling...

    Since we require Windows 7 or higher for installation, I am bypassing the version check in the dependency module, since it is not really needed. But I am still wondering, why that is happening.

    This is on a system freshly installed with 8.1
Working...
