SetupBuilder 8.0 Build 4063 (May 24, 2013)

IMPROVEMENT: [SB#3-04021] Add "Keys created are volatile" option to the
"Edit Registry..." script function.

IMPROVEMENT: [SB#3-04111] Add option to resolve a compiler variable for the
compiler.txt output pathname. The compiler can resolve
/LX [COMPILERVAR] during script compilation and write the log
to the specified location.

FIX : [SB#3-03251] IDE: Minor cosmetic fix in the "Edit Registry..."
properties dialog.

FIX : [SB#3-03221] IDE: "SetupBuilder 7 Command Line Compiler" typo
when processing a command line compile.

FIX : [SB#3-03291] IDE: When making a new Web Update project, when
the wizard asked for the original project, it only went up to
SB7 types in the drop down list.

FIX : [SB#3-03231] IDE: Possible "Cannot restore X to Y" compiler
directive error when the "Permanent" option was disabled.

FIX : [SB#3-04211] IDE: The "Clarion Environment Detection" dialog
did not show "C9" on the quick view list in the Script Editor
(Clarion 3rd-party developers only).

FIX : [SB#3-04241] Under certain circumstances, the installer did not
detect the Clarion 9 environment. When the "Disable Next button
if no Supported Clarion Version detected" checkbox was marked,
the compiler generated incorrect code (Clarion 3rd-party
developers only).

FIX : [SB#3-04251] IDE: Under certain circumstances, setups compiled
with SB8 Professional Edition caused a GPF when creating
Shortcuts on Windows 8 systems. The Professional Edition linker
did not add a required component for Windows 8 systems.

FIX : [SB#3-05162] IDE: The compiler generated a "Corrupt block/
Unknown block type freed." runtime error when the text size of
a static text control in a Custom Wizard Dialog was >512 bytes.

CHANGE : Failed MoveFile actions (including the "GetLastError" code) are
written to the event log.

CHANGE : [SB#3-05161] Installer: The "Get System Info(Expand Environment
Variable)" script function can retrieve values up to 10,243

CHANGE : [SB#3-05151] IDE: Add experimental code to try to minimize
Toolbar redrawing issues on Vista+.

CHANGE : "Release Notes" Shortcut pointed to SB7.HTM instead of SB8.HTM
in Developer Edition.

CHANGE : "Desktop" Shortcut pointed to SB7.EXE instead of SB8.EXE in
Professional Edition (Trial).
