Hi Matthias I stopped trying to use InstaMaker some time ago, but I’m sorry to say I can’t remember why - maybe I was just worried that as things were not working, there were too many variables for me to cope with. The reason I’ve forgotten is that I have had a pause in my development work

Hi Bob Yes, your interpretation is right. InnoSetup didn’t mind the line PrivilegesRequired line (no error flagged up) but the behaviour of the final step of the installation - launch the app - gave the same error as before. But modifying the Standalone Settings as you suggested did the trick.

I think he is saying that PrivilegesRequired=admin DOESN'T work, as I suspected. There is no point to running a Windows app as an administrator unless it is capable of modifying system files or altering settings only an admin can modify. By settings the UAC level to Same as Invoker (which IMHO

You may want to try my stack "Piccolo Installer”, just updated to version 1.1.6 "PiccoloInstaller" is a Livecode stack, to be used to create Mac or Windows standalone installers. Since it was created on 2014, it needed an update to support latest OS and LC versions. Regards Trevix

This all came about because with XP, if you logged in as an administrator account, any process that launched in that session ALSO ran as an administrator, which meant that it could modify system files. It was like a petri dish for malware. Just clicking to preview an email could ruin your day.

Just poking around, a manifest is like a config file for the app. As I mentioned, your installer maker solution may have a way to configure one. If not, apparently there are solutions that allow you to post process your executable to include one. Also worth considering, in the Windows tab of

Hmm, thanks for the discussion. I see that it is not a straightforward issue, and I am probably forced to get my hands dirty in the world of Windows. I am aching for a very simple set of step-by-step instructions, but of course that is not the job of anyone on this list! BTW, I am also asking

Elevation is a security feature of Windows since Vista I believe. Even though you log in with what you might think is an administrator account, the actual session user does NOT have Administrative rights. Anything that user does only has standard user rights. UAC (user access control) must be

Another deployment PITA. I’ve got a standalone which is cross-platform and works well on Mac and PC. Unfortunately I’m having a lot of trouble with making a viable Windows Installer, using the Inno system. All goes well with the installation process until the user checks “launch” for the app
