For change information take a quick tour of the changelog files.

INFO:
1) Download the attachment and also the latest DiskSpan GUI from DiskSpan GUI thread and extract boot files using WinRar or 7Zip.
2) Move the "COMPRESSOR" folder from the DiskSpan_GUI attachment to the CIU source code folder.

P.S: I shared the attachments separately so that the same attachment from DiskSpan_GUI can be used for other installers such as ASIS, LIS or others installers.
Also read the changes in the changelog because many keys have changed or no longer exist, and also some files need to be renamed or are no longer supported.
It may contain some new bugs in CIU because a large part of the code has changed.
So I ask you to report the bugs found so they can be fixed.
Thanks to everyone who contributed testing and reporting bugs in previous versions!
Thanks
Will test & report any bugs seen !

P.S
What is this entry in "Setup.ini" ?

Code:
AddDXFilter=1

From the Changelog:
Removed [ExtractSettings] section with all its keys.
>> Now CIU only works with Records.ini settings (Externally or inside Setup.dll).

Hello, the Unpacker GUI I was using no longer works with the latest version of DiskSpan_GUI. I'm currently using the example script that came with the newest DiskSpan_GUI to make a new very simple installer, but I cannot figure out how to remove the "Start Menu Folder" part of the script. Does anyone know how I can do that?

Also there has been one little typo in DiskSpan_GUI for awhile. It's in the "LOLZ Final Compressor" section, the typo is "Hight". I believe it should probably be "High".

I decided to share here about a way to avoid future mistakes.
Whenever compiling an executable containing videos with the CIU it is highly recommended to include the necessary LAV filters by enabling in the AddDXFilter=1 key of the [InstallOptions] section of Setup.ini.

I recently upgraded my system from Intel (3rd Generation) to AMD (Current Generation) and I noticed that installers created with CIU 3.0.0.1 beta 8 (I tested u2) doesn't work if filters haven't been included inside setup. exe using the AddDXFilter=1 key in the [InstallOptions] section of Setup.ini before compilation (CIU 3.0.0.1.b8 use old ISMediaLib.dll).
When running the installer and it has music or video, when trying to add the music or video the installer exits.
Maybe it's some K-Lite Codec Pack update as I also recently updated the K-Lite Codec pack to version 16.4.0.

In version CIU 3.0.0.1 beta 9 it is working perfectly including or not the LAV filters internally in Setup.exe.
Perhaps the error has to do with playing ".mp3" files because now in version 3.0.0.1 beta 9 who plays ".mp3" songs is the BASS.dll library. The ISMediaLib.dll library plays video files only, and there were no errors when using the current filters with K-Lite Codec Pack 16.40 installed.

hello, until now I use Windows phone installer (DSG) that I know more about. I wanted to switch to CIU but that's another story. I find it much more complex on the modifications to be made to adapt the skin. is there a doc somewhere? a tutorial? to read to know what to modify when you start a small can ?. thank you
