SetupBuilder 6.9 -- Build 2581 (April 29, 2009)

IMPROVEMENT: (sync from SB7) IDE: Compiled SetupBuilder 6 applications are
Windows 7 "Release Candidate" aware to ensure that software
gets installed properly. If an installer is not Windows 7
aware, "Program Assistant Compatibility" mitigation will kick

IMPROVEMENT: (sync from SB7) Installer: All internal System Memory Status
functions make use of the GlobalMemoryStatusEx API now with a
fall back mechanism to the old GlobalMemoryStatus API.

FIX : (sync from SB7) Installer: When uninstalling a multiple-version
installation (initial install and updates make use of the same
uninstall .exe/.log), the uninstall application switched into
Win64 mode on Windows 64-bit machines even for pure 32-bit
uninstalls. As a result, the uninstall did not remove 32-bit
specific registry keys and/or files.

FIX : (sync from SB7) [SB#904211] Installer: Possible problem on x64
operating systems when using the "Set x64 Mode..." function to
enable/disable 64-bit processing mode and the "Browse..."
button was pressed in the "Select Install Folder" dialog.

FIX : (sync from SB7) [SB#904211] IDE: The "Split Source String at
First Occurrence of Search String" option in the "Handle String
Operation" function was not working as expected.

CHANGE : (sync from SB7) Installer: Runtime modifications to provide
compatibility with the latest Clarion 7 template registration
and unregistration process.

CHANGE : Installer: The "Call DLL Function..." script function can
handle return arguments up to 1,024 bytes.

CHANGE : (sync from SB7) Installer: The "Delete Folder Tree..." script
function returns a value through %_SB_ERRORCODE%.

CHANGE : (sync from SB7) Installer: The "Detect Previous Version..."
script function automatically declares the return variable
to avoid runtime error "[9] Cannot find variable".

CHANGE : Recompiled wupdate.exe web update client to provide Windows 7
"Release Candidate" compatibility.

CHANGE : Recompiled wucheck.exe web update check client to provide
Windows 7 "Release Candidate" compatibility.

CHANGE : Recompiled pkey.exe code-sign helper to provide Windows 7
"Release Candidate" compatibility.

CHANGE : Updated online help.

CHANGE : Updated PDF manual.
