Wise InstallMaster 8.14: Shortcut Problem

Wise InstallMaster 8.14: Shortcut Problem

Wise InstallMaster 8.14: Shortcut Problem


I have the following problem with my setup (created with Wise InstallMaster 8.14):

It always crashes when the start menu shortcuts should be created because of a dll-loading error (cannot load dll glfxxx.tmp, while xxx is a number that changes every time I run my setup; in addition to that I cannot find a file that is called like this, not to mention a dll with .tmp extension).
If I comment out the shortcut creation everything works fine.

Hope I didn't overlook a similar topic in this forum...

Thanks for help

Problem solved:

I made some shortcuts at the beginning of my setup script. don't ask me why but after that everything worked fine.


RE: Wise InstallMaster 8.14: Shortcut Problem

Update: The problem is 'Parse String'. After having read values from registry I used 'Parse String' to generate paths. that's why setup crashes when creating shortcuts..I solved this thing using 'Set Variable' with option 'Remove filname' to get rid of the last part of the path..
