Installer Editor don't open!

Oct 30, 2010 at 4:38 PM

So, if i go Start->dotNetInstaller->Installer Editor, then it doesn't open the editor window. It appears to taskmanager and to taskbar, but i'm not able to open it! neither does any configuration file open. I tried to reinstall and fix it, but nothing didn't help.

Any help is appreciated!

Some questions.

  • Operating system?
  • Version of dotNetInstaller? Did you install with the MSI or extracted a ZIP?
  • Rename registry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\dotNetInstaller to dotNetInstaller.bad, try again. If it works after that, export the key into a file and file a bug.
  • Download the .zip and run InstallerEditor after extracting it into a new folder. Any changes?
  • Does running InstallerEditor.exe from command line work?

This was fixed in rev. 57136. The problem happens when InstallerEditor is closed while minimized. It sets its coordinates to -32000 in registry and when it re-loads, creates a minimized window at that location. Maximizing it doesn't move the window into the screen.
