Another but important problem, if the components like DLC and Languages ​​of the game have been activated, we cannot check or uncheck

My ASIS is having issues decompressing something with plz4, (Unarc -2) even if ZTool is enabled on the GUI. What can I do to fix this? I tried adding different decompression files for ZTool in the BPK folder so it gets included in the installer, and I get the same issue.

@mr_gnar

make sure arc.ini is configured correctly. Unarc -2 is missing decompressor, so it's an error for you, not the installer.

Code:
v7.2.2
_____________________________________________________
- Updated compressors
- On cancelling installation the {app} folder will now be deleted
- Added XTool 2020 support
- Added DiskSpan_GUI support (thanks to Cesar82)
If everything is good I will use this as a final version (finished this script).

Support for xzlib+srep_new+lolz_mtx please some day in the future.
Getting this error for my Rocket League

Annotation.png

Also, when I try compact installer, I get this error.
Annotation1.png

Basically, it asks for the installation location but there's no next button to click so, it's just stuck there, also, the x button to end it doesn't work, have to end it via task manager.
I also got it in the old version, I thought, you'd have fixed it in this one but it still persists. It could also be my mistake in the settings file, so I'm attaching it here for you to take a look just in case.

Also, I changed the AppName in the script.iss file because I got this error when I compiled the script, it compiled the script after that.

What Inno Setup version you're using for compile the script? Did you test with Compile_Script.bat file?

Unicode or ANSI?

You said you have changed AppName inside script.iss. Send me your script.iss file please. PS: Only change AppName inside Settings.ini file.

I don't have this error here so I can't say for sure. Maybe because of IS version. I will look in next days.

---------------------------------------

Here is a hotfix for the cancel button. I didn't had time to look further (christmas things).

Hi, i like this installer but i want adapt it to my ways to compress videogames.

1. I don't want use UltraARC 2900 R9

2. I don't want use COMPRESSOR_GUI

To compress i'm using and old version of the masked compression. It has a .bat file to run the compression, Arc.exe, arc.ini (with methods and commands to compress inside), arc.groups and all the exe of the compressors/tools that i'm using. So to compress i must run the bat file, select the game folder and the compression starts. It is very simple and i can see how are working all the tools. And i can add new tools and commands to compress very simply.

I want that this installer has a folder with all my tools inside, compress all the tools inside the setup.exe (exactly like "Windows Phone Installer" does) and when i run it, it decompress all the tools files inside the temporary folder of windows.

Someone can help me please?

You can use an older version of ASIS. Perhaps KaktoR still has earlier versions.
Or make your changes to the current script to include your compressors within setup.exe.

Yes but how to do that exactly? For example the first problem is that the setup checks if is present a "setup.dll" file created from "COMPRESSOR_GUI". And i don't know how to remove that requisite.

I find it easier to use it with the Setup.dll external file.
Otherwise it would take a lot of stretches in the script for you to include your compressors.
Extracting the compressors from the Setup.dll file is much faster than extracting from within setup.exe.
You can create your own Setup.dll with your compressors, just by compressing the contents of your compressor folder with FreeArc using the -m1 method.
Then you can use your bat file to compress your game.
I think that in the UltraArc folder there is a BAT (_Compress Optional DLL) to you drop your compressors folder and Setup.dll will be generated.
Then just move Setup.dll to your Setup.exe.
Setup.dll supports including Arc.ini and CLS.ini with their original names.
You will also need the information of the compressed files in an external file records.ini (you can include Records.ini within Setup.dll).
You can also configure the methods on DiskSpan_GUI. DiskSpan_GUI is 95% configurable. DiskSpan_GUI will soon support freearc masks.

Tested. The problem is that it doesn't decompress my "data.arc" archive. Also the file "records.ini" is present where is the setup, same for the setup.dll (tried also to create it manually with freearc). No errors, simply doesn't install anything.
