    Hi,

    It creates the compressed dist file but our custom exe fails to run.

    Could you give more details regarding this issue? What do you mean with custom exe? Could you also tell me the size of the dist file in this mode?

    Regards,

    Michiel

    Hello,

    Thanks for the reply.

    The "custom exe" is the small activation program I tried to describe at the beginning of the post. We have a componentGroup with two parameters (license and password). We call our exe with "runProgram" passing the license and password as "programArguments". The exe connects to our server and receives a response. The response is stored in a variable using "setInstallerVariable" and used later to delete and rename a set of files or another.

    All this has been working without problems until now. The only change is that the files being distributed are bigger and the final installer crossed the 2GB line.

    The problem with the "Compressed CDRom" mode is that this activation program fails to run. The dist file in this mode is 3.28GB.

    Hi,

    Could you run the installer with the debugtrace option and send the debug.txt to support@bitrock.com?

        .\installer.exe --debugtrace debug.txt

    Regards,

    Michiel

    Hi,

    Just sent.

    Note I had to generate it with --syncdebugtrace because with --debugtrace the installer seems to crash without generating the log.

    Thanks
