SetupBuilder 7.0 Build 2707 (September 12, 2009)

IMPROVEMENT: IDE: Add support for a new SB_GENERATORFLAG symbol in the

specific generator flags at compile time. The following flags
are supported:


IMPROVEMENT: Installer: Add support for 16-bit bitmaps in the wizard.

software system (virus scanner, firewall, etc.) blocks the
initial installer loading process.

bar dialog during a command line compile.

SB7.EXE /CS "C:\test\sample.sb7"

the "Get Special Folder Path..." script function.

FIX : [SB#908111] IDE: The compiler in the "Professional Edition" did
code-sign the UNINSTALL only, it did not code-sign the INSTALL.

FIX : [SB#908112] IDE: Open a SB6 and "save-as" SB7 ended up as:

FIX : [SB#908113] IDE: Data Source Attribute import issue in the
"Install ODBC Driver..." function on machines running Windows

FIX : IDE: The [MY_PROJECTS] compiler variable pointed to the "old"
standard "SetupBuilder 6 Projects" folder.

FIX : [SB#908131] IDE: Possible FTP upload problem when using Build |
Distribute to FTP Server.

FIX : [SB#908241] IDE: "Error GEN1072 UpdatePROTECT" command line
compiler issue when processing a script that calls the "Verify
Subscription Key..." function.

FIX : [SB#908121] IDE: If "OS Independent" was not enabled in the
"Install ODBC Driver..." or "Run Program..." properties and
Server 2008, Windows 7, or Server 2008 R2 was selected, the
compiler generated incorrect execution code.

FIX : Installer: The "Get Special Folder Path..." script function
always returned 0 (=failure).

CHANGE : [SB#908113] IDE: Popup messages make use of the Tahoma font.

CHANGE : IDE: Script Editor shows "[Remove read-only]" for the "Delete
Files..." function if the "Remove read-only attribute" option
is enabled.

CHANGE : Installer: If the "Get System Info (Expand Environment
Variable)" function does not find the specified environment
variable, it returns an empty string value.

CHANGE : Installer: No restore points are available when you use Windows
Vista or Windows Server 2008 in a dual-boot configuration
together with an earlier Windows operating system. If the
installer supports restore points and is unable to load the
SrClient DLL, it continues without system restore points.

CHANGE : Updated online help.

CHANGE : Updated PDF manual.
