[wix-users] ShowFileInUse in Bootstrapper... [P]

Since no is the default value, it would make sense for it to not be written to the manifest.


If that documentation is correct...

Return Values
The value returned if successful.
The value when returning Null.
The value returned if the namedItem parameter is Null.

That leads me to believe that XmlGetAttributeNumber is returning S_FALSE not E_NOTFOUND.  In which case, it's turning on the files in use dialog because of the previous value being read in from the last option it found.

I sure hope I am reading the docs wrong, or this is a rather large and long standing bug.

Okay interesting...

Looking at the code in  .\WIX_ToolSet_v3.10\src\ext\BalExtension\wixstdba\WixStandardBootstrapperApplication.cpp in the method:

It is trying to read: 
hr = XmlGetAttributeNumber(pNode, L"ShowFilesInUse", &dwBool);
        if (E_NOTFOUND == hr)
            hr = S_OK;
        else if (SUCCEEDED(hr))
            m_fShowFilesInUse = 0 < dwBool;
        BalExitOnFailure(hr, "Failed to get ShowFilesInUse value.");

Looking at the .\.ba1\BootstrapperApplicationData.xml file that variable is not listed:
<WixStdbaOptions SuppressDowngradeFailure="1" SuppressRepair="1" ShowVersion="1" />

I don't think this variable is being read properly... (i.e. setting ShowFilesInUse="no")...

Can someone please see if this is an issue

Our main branch uses WiX 3.10 QA/Management do not like the "new" ShowFilesInUse dialog.
I have set ShowFilesInUse to "no" the dialog still pops up...

How do you TURN this feature OFF?

It was added by:

I would like some help with this please...

How do I turn OFF ShowFilesInUse, I do have ShowFilesInUse=no but the dialog still shows...



Hi Folks,

QA and Management are getting upset with the FileInUse dialog popping up in the Bootstrapper during our Client install.

Using WiX 3.10

I had "ShowFilesInUse="yes" so this morning I put 'ShowFilesInUse="no"' rebuilt my project and ran it.

During uninstall the FileInUse dialog still shows in the Boostrapper...How do I turn it off?
The MSI's are run silent during install/uninstall...
my bundle.wxs looks like:<BootstrapperApplicationRef Id="WixStandardBootstrapperApplication.RtfLicense">      <Payload SourceFile="$(var.scSourcePath)\SideBanner.png" Compressed="yes" />      <Payload SourceFile="$(var.scSourcePath)\end-user license.png" Compressed="yes" />      <Payload SourceFile="$(var.scSourcePath)\Background.png" Compressed="yes" />      <bal:WixStandardBootstrapperApplication        SuppressOptionsUI="no"        LogoFile="$(var.resourcePath)\classification.png"        ThemeFile="$(var.SolutionDir)Include\HyperlinkTheme.xml"        LocalizationFile="$(var.SolutionDir)Include\HyperlinkTheme_ClientSuite.wxl"        LicenseFile="$(var.resourcePath)\CLIENT_SUITE_EULA_text.rtf"        ShowFilesInUse="no"        SuppressRepair="yes"        SuppressDowngradeFailure="yes"></bal:WixStandardBootstrapperApplication>    </BootstrapperApplicationRef>

my theme file is:<Page Name="FilesInUse">    <Image X="00" Y="00" Width="493" Height="58" ImageFile="Logo.png" Visible="no"/>    <Static X="0" Y="309" Width="495" Height="1" HexStyle="0x00000200L"/>    <Static X="0" Y="58" Width="495" Height="1" HexStyle="0x00000200L"/>    <Text X="11" Y="-11" Width="246" Height="17" FontId="4" DisablePrefix="yes">#(loc.InstallVersion)</Text>    <Text X="11" Y="60" Width="-11" Height="30" FontId="2" DisablePrefix="yes">#(loc.FilesInUseHeader)</Text>    <Text X="11" Y="101" Width="-11" Height="34" FontId="3" DisablePrefix="yes">#(loc.FilesInUseLabel)</Text>    <Text Name="FilesInUseText"  X="11" Y="130" Width="-11" Height="-86" FontId="3" DisablePrefix="yes" HexStyle="0x0000C000"></Text>    <Button Name="FilesInUseCloseRadioButton" X="11" Y="-85" Width="-11" Height="23" TabStop="yes" FontId="0" HideWhenDisabled="yes" HexStyle="0x000009">#(loc.FilesInUseCloseRadioButton)</Button>    <Button Name="FilesInUseDontCloseRadioButton" X="11" Y="-65" W

The Bootstrapper log file does not have ShowFilesInUse...
Am I missing something?
