SetupBuilder 7.2 Build 2978 (June 04, 2010)

FEATURE : Add Core PreRequisites built-in support for "Microsoft Visual
C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86) (10.0.30319)".
(Developer Edition only).

FEATURE : Add Core PreRequisites built-in support for "Microsoft .NET
Framework 4". (Developer Edition only).

IMPROVEMENT: Add "System Metrics" option to the "Get System Info..." script

IMPROVEMENT: Add "Calculate Cumulative File Size (KB)" option to the "Handle
File List..." script function.

IMPROVEMENT: Installer: The "Calculate Cumulative File Size (Bytes)" option
in "Handle File List..." supports quad (U64) unsigned integer

IMPROVEMENT: Installer: The "File Size" option in "Get File Info..."
supports quad (U64) unsigned integer numbers.

IMPROVEMENT: Add "Save As..." option to the "Wizard: Browse for File..."
script function. This creates a Save dialog box that lets the
user specify the drive, directory, and name of a file to save.

IMPROVEMENT: Add support for the SoftVelocity Clarion 7.2 environment.

IMPROVEMENT: Add "Text Alignment" option to the VDE "Static Text" Control.

IMPROVEMENT: [SB#005312] IDE: Add a "Details" button to the "Support Files"

IMPROVEMENT: [SB#005313] IDE: Better support for the "Enter" button in
various Visualizers as equivalent to clicking the "Details..."

FIX : [SB#005031] IDE: When you pressed the Test/Run/Debug button and
had changes in your script, it prompted you to save the changes
with a Yes/Cancel dialog. After pressing "Yes", you got another
"Do you want to save dialog" with Yes/No/Cancel.

FIX : [SB#005171] IDE: Compiler variables for installer and
uninstaller code-signing were resolved before the compiler
processed the preprocessor items.

FIX : IDE: Another fix for [SB#002092]. Possible (silent) buffer
overrun in the compiler if the "Title", "Heading" or
"Subheading" in a "Custom Wizard Dialog" was > 100 bytes.

FIX : [SB#005201] IDE: Possible issues when starting the Debugger
with the "F5" hotkey.

FIX : [SB#005271] Installer: If the "Handle Text File Operation (Get
Line) script function failed, the variable that received the
result was not initialized.

FIX : [SB#005311] IDE: "Map/Disconnect Network Drive..." item could
not be deleted from within the Script Editor.

FIX : Installer: Under certain circumstances, the "Progress Dialog"
caption appeared twice in the taskbar.

FIX : Installer: A new wizard dialog started minimized when a
previously displayed "Progress Dialog" was closed

CHANGE : [SB#005041] Installer: Modification in the new internal "wizard
event handling" module to prevent possible "dead-lock" issues
when external (installer) applications are launched with the
"Wait" option enabled. The new event handling method caused a
"hang" during the installation of Microsoft's MSDE.

CHANGE : [SB#005032] Installer: When the installer terminates and there
are still files in the temporary installer folder, the
installer application tries to delete the files.

CHANGE : [SB#005131] IDE: If you embed a manifest into a file and/or
code-sign a file from within the script using compiler
directives with the "Permanent" option disabled, the relevant
manifested / code-signed file details and the current
(original) source file details are listed in the Compiler .htm

CHANGE : UnInstaller: Increase buffer size for SoftVelocity Clarion 7.x
template name detection from 2KB to 10KB.

CHANGE : [SB#005262] Installer: Modified "Get System Info (IIS Version)"
method to detect if a specific version of Internet Information
Services is installed even if the IIS 6 Metabase Compatibility
switch is disabled.

CHANGE : IDE: Block some internal "gain focus" and "resize" repaint

CHANGE : Installer: The "Handle File Listing..." script function can
handle up to 10,240 items (increased from 2,048 items).

CHANGE : Installer: Internal runtime change "04-Jun-2010".

CHANGE : Recompiled wupdate.exe web update client.
