Inno Setup 5.2.0

Posted on Friday, September 21 2007 @ 00:13:34 CEST by

Inno Setup is a free installer for Windows programs. First introduced in 1997, Inno Setup today rivals and even surpasses many commercial installers in feature set and stability.

  • On Windows Vista, [Run] section entries with the postinstall flag no longer inherit Setup's elevated privileges by default, and instead now execute with the (normally non-elevated) credentials of the user that started Setup initially. (There are some exceptions; see the runasoriginaluser flag documentation for details.)
  • Added new [Run] section flags: runascurrentuser and runasoriginaluser. These control which user credentials are used on Windows Vista when spawning processes. (runasoriginaluser is the default when the postinstall flag is used; runascurrentuser is the default otherwise.)
  • Improved compression of x86 executable files. (This reduced the size of Inno Setup's own installer by approximately 10 KB.)
  • Added new [Files] section parameter: ExternalSize.
  • Added new constant: {log}. Translates to the log file name, or an empty string if logging is not enabled.
  • Added new [Files] and [Dirs] sections flags: setntfscompression and unsetntfscompression. These flags instruct Setup to enable or disable NTFS compression on the file or directory.
  • Pascal Scripting:
    • Added new ExecAsOriginalUser, ShellExecAsOriginalUser, and SetNTFSCompression support functions.
    • Now supports new DLL loading flag loadwithalteredsearchpath to load DLLs with the Windows flag LOAD_WITH_ALTERED_SEARCH_PATH.
  • The Setup loader now uses the original Setup EXE filename + .tmp as the filename for the extracted Setup executable instead of a name comprised of random letters and numbers, which may have seemed suspicious to firewall users.
  • In a multilingual installation, Setup now waits until after the Select Language dialog is shown to display any error messages concerning the user's Windows version or privilege level.
  • Fix: On Windows Vista, AutoPlay wasn't being suppressed when the user swapped out discs in a disk-spanned install.
  • Fix: When the waituntilidle flag was used in the [UninstallRun] section, it behaved like waituntilterminated.
  • Based on RemObjects Pascal Script SVN code revision 1045a.
  • The uninstall program's version is now
