I saw some Innosetup postings here, maybe somebody can help...

Using Innosetup I (want to) query the registry to find the installed versions of AutoCAD. The problem (for me, not for a Pascal expert) is the great number of possible versions:

- a lot of basic version (e.g. 2007 - 2014)
- a lot of languages
- a lot of verticals ....

Who has the perfect idea (better: the perfect solution :-D) handle this complexity ?

a) IS searches and displays all installed versions
b) User selects the versions he needs (IS Components?)
c-1) IS installs to all existing languages of all selected components..
c-2) IS installs to all selected  languages of all selected components.. (Maybe a little bit crazy idea and not necessary ..)

Thanks and regards
Peter

What do you want to install? If you have your own application you can install it in the plugin directory. In your package xml you can do the stuff for the different versions.

This will only work from 2012 versions I guess. I don't know much about Pascal, I've spent a few hours searching for this too, but finally I gave up and wrote my own registry tool (exe) which can be start by IS. In that tool I do a search for the installed versions and create new registry keys.

That I only use for the BricsCAD software, for AutoCAD I moved to the plugin system.

The conclusion is justified that the initialization of the development of critical subsystem optimizes the probability of success to the development of the technical behavior over a given period.

Actually one VLX, compiled from Lisp.
But I use also OpenDCL and Doslib and LspLoader, and this is why I'm experimenting with "Loader" and "LoadCTRLS", which are placed in

"HKCU\Software\Autodesk\AutoCAD\R19.1\ACAD-D001:407\Applications\MyAPP"

where all red entries can be different.

...If you have your own application you can install it in the plugin directory. ....
Where? What? How?
As said above I'm try to use the autoload-feature via LOADER.

...In your package xml you can do the stuff for the different versions. This will only work from 2012 versions I guess. .....
Right. But I have to consider it also for (at least) 2011.

.......and wrote my own registry tool (exe) which can be start by IS. In that tool I do a search for the installed versions and create new registry keys.....
I hoped to avoid this.

In my opinion, the best solution is to simply iterate every supported version of AutoCAD and automatically install your autoload key in every flavor and language of those supported versions. I have written UI for selecting specific instances to install to, but it's very complicated and almost never useful (95% of end users have only one installed version of AutoCAD, and 99% of the remaining users want the app on all of their installations.)

The red entries can be determined using the vlax-product-key function.

As I understand it, newer products (2013+) use vlax-User-Product-Key... More info at the bottom of this post.

Accessing the product key was changed in .NET API as well, as shown here.

Stupid question time: is this installation set-up intended for internal distribution (ie. known application targets) or external distribution (ie. sharing with the world)?
If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.

No, no - stupid questions are my speciality  :-D

At first step, I know the testers and their configs, but later on, I hope the entire world (or a part of it) will use it.

There's quite a few examples of doing this on StackOverflow. IMO Pascal's not a hard language to understand, it's just a lot more verbose than Lisp. Actually I found it a lot easier to understand than C/C++ (about similar to VB/C#).

Some differences from Pascal over Lisp: All local variables has to be declared between the header and the body of the function in a var section, you also need to specify the type (as this is a static typed language). It is possible to send arguments by reference in Pascal, simialr like quoting an argument in Lisp - only in Pascal you define the function that way instead of modifying the call statement.

Here's a few samples after doing a google:
The official InnoSetup's Pascal Script does have help on the functions which might be of use. Scroll down to the Registry Functions section on this page: http://www.jrsoftware.org/ishelp/index.php?topic=scriptfunctions


You might find the RegGetSubkeyNames function of use. Note the use of the var prefix for the Names argument. That means it's a by-reference argument. So your function needs to have a local variable of type TArrayOfString and add this is the argument in that position. If the RegGetSubkeyNames returns true then your local variable will contain the names.


So the principle is this: You'll look for subkeys under HKLU\Software\Autodesk\AutoCAD\. That would list all installed versions. Under each of those, there might be subkeys as well (e.g. Vanilla / C3D / Mech / ACA / etc. all have their own codes in here). Then under the Profiles of that folder, you might have several profiles which the user might have saved. Thus you'd probably have to do a nested iteration for the different levels.
Common sense - the curse in disguise. Because if you have it, you have to live with those that don't.

Another alternative way of going about it through IS's built-in Pascal Script would be to use IS in conjunction with AcadInst. Here's a good tut on how to use them: http://www.afralisp.net/archive/lisp/install1.htm

Just note, the free version of AcadInst forces you to use their built-in dialogs, it's like an add-ware app. If you pay for it you can get rid of these.

Hi irneb

which version of AcadInstall are you talking about? Byron has suspended his development (I have some products of Cadwerx), and the version which can be found in the web is rather old. And I don't know a current version to purchase. And the Afra-Lisp site talks of version 2004.

Sorry, that's something I used very long ago. Didn't realize it was suspended  :oops:. So ignore my previous post.

I think for an installer, your most comprehensive bet would be to use the Pascal Script to modify registry as you originally intended. Note the vlax-*-product-key is a Lisp function - for it to run you needed to have ACad already open with your LSP loaded (not usually the case when you install your addon).

And as Huiz has explained since 2012 there's a plugin folder which is the official plugin install folder. Though you still might need to edit registry is something special is needed.

Edit: You might even be able to get what you're after using the bundle idea: http://through-the-interface.typepad.com/through_the_interface/2011/09/autodesk-exchange-preparing-your-autocad-application-for-posting.html

Do you have an example for this iteration in Pascal / Innosetup?

Hi Peter,

In my opinion - Owen's LspLoad is a far more elegant and flexible solution than AcadInstall (even before it was depreciated).

Below is a Innosetup/Pascal code example of how to loop through AutoCAD versions and create the relevant LspLoad registry entries for an imaginary application called "MyCADApp".  It is purely to demonstrate the mechanism.  It is stripped down to just do 64bit ACAD on 64bit Windows to demonstrate the principle. 

Once you've got a handle on the pascal scripting, it should be relatively straight forward to modify/expand it to add tests for 32bit CAD on 64bit Windows and 32bit CAD on 32bit Windows and of course do similar for Bricscad.  All the additional functions you may require eg "IsWin64" can be found in the "Support Function Reference" in the Innosetup Help files.


Code: [Select]
procedure AddACADRegKey (Release: String); {eg 'R19.0 for ACAD 2013'}
var
  RunTimeNum: String; {eg '19'}
  AllProductID: TArrayOfString;
  ProductID: String; {eg 'ACAD-9001:409'}
  KeyPathShort: String;{eg 'SOFTWARE\Autodesk\AutoCAD\'}
  KeyPathLong: String; {eg 'SOFTWARE\Autodesk\AutoCAD\R18.1\ACAD-9001:409\Applications\MyCADApp'}
  KeyStringShort: String; {eg c:\Program Files\MyCADApp\LspLoad.'}
  KeyStringLong: String; {eg 'c:\Program Files\MyCADApp\LspLoad.19.x64.arx'}   
  I: Integer;
begin
  RunTimeNum := Copy (Release, 2, 2);
  KeyStringShort := ExpandConstant('{pf}\MyCADApp\LspLoad.');
  KeyPathShort := 'SOFTWARE\Autodesk\AutoCAD\';
  if RegGetSubkeyNames(HKLM64, KeyPathShort + Release, AllProductID)
    then begin
      for I := 1 to GetArrayLength(AllProductID) do begin
        ProductID := AllProductID[I-1];
        KeyPathLong := KeyPathShort + Release + '\' + ProductID + '\Applications\MyCADApp';
        KeyStringLong := KeyStringShort + RunTimeNum + '.x64.arx';
        RegWriteDWordValue (HKLM64, KeyPathLong,'LOADCTRLS', 2);
        RegWriteStringValue (HKLM64, KeyPathLong,'LOADER',KeyStringLong);
      end;
    end;
end;

An example of its useage - to test for ACAD 2012 and ACAD 2013 and add the registry entries triggered by an end installation event you would add the following code:

Code: [Select]
procedure CurStepChanged(CurStep: TSetupStep);
begin
  if CurStep=ssPostInstall
    then begin
        AddAcadRegKey ('R18.2');{ACAD 2012}
        AddAcadRegKey ('R19.0');{ACAD 2013}
   end;
end;

I think you will find that its time well spent getting a handle on this.  Good luck with it.

I cannot speak for BricsCAD, but regarding Autodesk-based products, Autoloader is really quite simple... Using the "MyCADApp" example noted above (for comparison), here's all that is needed to load the proper ObjectARX assembly (R18/R19, 32/64-Bit) into the appropriate product (as supported by Autoloader)...



PackageContents.xml:

Code - XML: [Select]
  1. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
  2. <ApplicationPackage AppVersion="1.0.0" Author="YourNameHere" Description="MyCADApp for AutoCAD®"        HelpFile="./Contents/Resources/MyCADAppHelp.chm" Name="MyCADApp for AutoCAD®" ProductCode="{2EA4A60C-362E-4801-B930-DEA74C82669E}" ProductType="Application" SchemaVersion="1.0" UpgradeCode="{6CCFC2A5-2268-404d-9616-26D5DAF495F6}"   >
  3.         <CompanyDetails Email="YourNameHere@SomePlace.com" Name="YourNameHere" Phone="911-123-4567 " Url="https://www.SomePlace.com" />
  4.         <Components>
  5.                 <RuntimeRequirements OS="Win32|Win64" Platform="AutoCAD|Civil3D|Map|AIS|ADT|ACADM|MEP|ACADE|PNID|Plant3D|Civil|LDT" SeriesMin="R18.2" SeriesMax="R18.2" />       
  6.                 <ComponentEntry AppName="MyCADApp for AutoCAD®" AppDescription="MyCADApp for AutoCAD® does a bunch of useful stuff." ModuleNameWin32="./Contents/Windows/2010/MyCADApp18.arx" ModuleNameWin64="./Contents/Windows/2010/MyCADApp18x64.arx" Version="1.0.0" />                   
  7.         </Components>
  8.         <Components>
  9.                 <RuntimeRequirements OS="Win32|Win64" Platform="AutoCAD*" SeriesMin="R19.0" SeriesMax="R19.2" />         
  10.                 <ComponentEntry AppName="MyCADApp for AutoCAD®" AppDescription="MyCADApp for AutoCAD® does a bunch of useful stuff." ModuleNameWin32="./Contents/Windows/2013/MyCADApp19.arx" ModuleNameWin64="./Contents/Windows/2013/MyCADApp19x64.arx" Version="1.0.0" />   
  11.         </Components>
  12. </ApplicationPackage>
  13.  



Attached is a pseudo-code Autoloader .bundle where you could replace the MyCADApp*.arx files (which are really just empty text files with an .arx extension) with your code as needed... Again, this is for demonstration purposes only, and will not actually load... Once you have modified both the .bundle, and its contents to go 'live' simply move to the following directory:

Code - Text: [Select]
  1. %AppData%\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\SomePlace-MyCADApp.bundle


... No registry calls to install for each-and-every-single product, just drop it in the folder... And when you don't want it anymore, simple rename the .bundle (i.e., SomePlace-MyCADApp.bundle.void, etc.), or delete it. Lemon squeezy.

Cheers

@BlackBox:
Autoloader is fine, but I have to serve also version beneath 2012 - so Autoloader can not serve these old versions.

@DanW:
Thanks for the code. The problem is multiplied with languages and versions. So maybe this pseudo-code would help (pseudo-code because my Pascal-knowledge is too low for real code).

Code: [Select]
// define what should be supported

myversions := array ("18.0" "18. 1" "18.2" "19.0")
mylanguages := array ("401" "407" "410" "804")
myproducts := array ("9000" "9001" "A000" "A001" "A007")

// combine all arrays and test what exists in registry
foreach value "myversions"
    do all entries
        foreach value "mylanguages"
            do all entries
                foreach value "myproducts"
                    do all entries
                       KeyToCheck := HKLM + versionValue + languageValue + productValue
                      Ifexist KeyToCeck
                          then
                             write something to registry
I think this would handle all supported (= defined) software which exists.
Any ideas to handle it in Pascal?

Understandable... I too suffer this at my work... For those unsupported versions I simply NETLOAD the appropriate assembly from the network via Acad.lsp file (one for each product), with LoadFromRemoteSources enabled within Acad.Exe.Config file as Kean demonstrates here.

Good luck!

The problem is multiplied with languages and versions. So maybe this pseudo-code would help (pseudo-code because my Pascal-knowledge is too low for real code).
First, there are many ways of going about this.

Second, I'd avoid going with normal arrays in Pascal. They need to be declared as static (i.e. you need to state their sizes beforehand), even FreePascal's dynamic arrays need to be adjusted using SetLength (don't know if PascalScript even has this), so any modifications later would mean you'd need to change at least 2 pieces of code. Next you either need to save the array lengths somewhere, or use the Low & High functions to get the start and end indexes.

I'd rather go with a built-in collection of strings, something like TStringList. Because it allows to simply add to it, it's always a 0 based index, and it contains a Count property.

Then to initialize the variables you'd need something much more verbose than you're used to:
Code - Pascal: [Select]
  1. { Define what should be supported }
  2. var myVersions  : TStringList;
  3.     myLanguages : TStringList;
  4.     myProducts  : TStringList;
  5.  
  6. { Procedure called by InnoSetup when it starts }
  7. procedure InitializeWizard();
  8. begin
  9.     { Initialize the values of supported versions }
  10.     myVersions := TStringList.Create; // Make a new TStringList object reference
  11.     myVersions.Add('18.0'); // Add a string into the StringList object
  12.     myVersions.Add('18.1');
  13.     myVersions.Add('18.2');
  14.     myVersions.Add('19.0');
  15.     myLanguages := myLanguages.Create;
  16.     myLanguages.Add('401');
  17.     myLanguages.Add('407');
  18.     myLanguages.Add('410');
  19.     myLanguages.Add('804');
  20.     myProducts := myProducts.Create;
  21.     myProducts.Add('9000');
  22.     myProducts.Add('9001');
  23.     myProducts.Add('A000');
  24.     myProducts.Add('A001');
  25.     myProducts.Add('A007');
  26. end;
  27.  
  28. { Procedure called by InnoSetup when it's closing }
  29. procedure DeinitializeSetup();
  30. begin
  31.     myVersions.Free;
  32.     myLanguages.Free;
  33.     myProducts.Free;
  34. end;
Notice that the object is instantiated through the Create constructor. But this means that you need to release it using the Free destructor. The procedures I've used are standard names called by InnoSetup at specific points during the installer's run, others can be found here: http://www.jrsoftware.org/ishelp/index.php?topic=scriptevents

Next, you'd need to step through those in a similar idea as DanW's code.
Code - Pascal: [Select]
  1. procedure AddRegistry();
  2. var v, l, p, root : Integer;
  3.     path1, path2 : String;
  4. begin
  5.     if IsWin64 then root := HKLM64
  6.     else root := HKLM32;
  7.     path1 := 'SOFTWARE\Autodesk\AutoCAD\';
  8.     path2 := '\Applications\MyCADApp\';
  9.     for v := 0 to (myVersions.Count - 1) do
  10.         if RegKeyExists(root, path1 + myVersions[v]) then
  11.             for l := 0 to (myLanguages.Count - 1) do
  12.                 for p := 0 to (myProducts.Count - 1) do
  13.                     if RegKeyExists(root, path1 + myVersions[v] + '\ACAD-' + myProducts[p] + ':' + myLanguages[l]) then begin
  14.                         RegWriteStringValue(root, path1 + myVersions[v] + '\ACAD-' + myProducts[p] + ':' + myLanguages[l] + path2,
  15.                                             'InstallPath', ExpandConstant('{app}');
  16.                     end;
  17. end;

Simpler Alternative
Rather than save all versions to arrays / collections and then step through all that. do the same principle as DanW's code:
Code - Pascal: [Select]
  1. procedure AddACADRegKey (const Version, Language, Product : String);
  2. var root : Integer;
  3.     path1, path2 : String;
  4. begin
  5.     if IsWin64 then root := HKLM64
  6.     else root := HKLM32;
  7.     path1 := 'SOFTWARE\Autodesk\AutoCAD\';
  8.     path2 := '\Applications\MyCADApp\';
  9.     if RegKeyExists(root, path1 + Version + '\ACAD-' + Product + ':' + Language) then begin
  10.         RegWriteStringValue(root, path1 + Version + '\ACAD-' + Product + ':' + Language + path2,
  11.                             'InstallPath', ExpandConstant('{app}');
  12.     end;
  13. end;
  14.  
  15. procedure CurStepChanged(CurStep: TSetupStep);
  16. begin
  17.   if CurStep=ssPostInstall
  18.     then begin
  19.         AddAcadRegKey ('R18.2', '401', '9000');
  20.         AddAcadRegKey ('R19.0', '804', 'A000');
  21.    end;
  22. end;

No Code Alternative
You could simply add these things into your Registry section and have a Check parameter for each. E.g.
Code: [Select]
[Registry]
Root: HKLM; Subkey: "SOFTWARE\Autodesk\AutoCAD\18.0\ACAD-A000:401\Applications\MyCADApp\"; ValueType: string; ValueName: "InstallPath"; ValueData: "{app}"; Flags: uninsdeletekey; Check: RegKeyExists(HKLM, 'SOFTWARE\Autodesk\AutoCAD\18.0\ACAD-A000:401')
Root: HKLM; Subkey: "SOFTWARE\Autodesk\AutoCAD\18.1\ACAD-9000:407\Applications\MyCADApp\"; ValueType: string; ValueName: "InstallPath"; ValueData: "{app}"; Flags: uninsdeletekey; Check: RegKeyExists(HKLM, 'SOFTWARE\Autodesk\AutoCAD\18.1\ACAD-9000:407')
Root: HKLM; Subkey: "SOFTWARE\Autodesk\AutoCAD\19.0\ACAD-A007:804\Applications\MyCADApp\"; ValueType: string; ValueName: "InstallPath"; ValueData: "{app}"; Flags: uninsdeletekey; Check: RegKeyExists(HKLM, 'SOFTWARE\Autodesk\AutoCAD\19.0\ACAD-A007:804')
No need to "code", just call the built-in function. Though now you add the registry path twice. And you might need to do something for the 32/64 bit issue.

Wonderful, thanks. I think this should be added to the IS Knowledge base (ISXKB ..??)

Nope, you need not "understand" it, just remember to do it (otherwise you end up with memory leaks).

It's just that Pascal is not using a garbage collector like Lisp/C# does. In that way it's much more like C/C++ (Pascal & C share a common ancestor - Algol, actually Pascal is closer to Algol than C is). That means that any variable allocated in RAM needs to be released explicitly, most normal variables (i.e. strings, integers, reals) are handled direct by the compiler which adds the allocation & release for you. But when it comes to special data types, the compiler doesn't "know" what to do, thus you need to both make and clear them yourself. This is where GC makes life a lot easier and safer (as you need not worry about these things causing memory leaks), but using explicit memory management means your program needs much less RAM (usually around 1/5th to get the same speed of execution).

Hi Irneb,

Fantastic tutorial! Taught me a lot.  Many thanks for posting.
Glad to. I had to try and remember some of the basics as I originally learned Borland TurboPascal in 1993. Have used variants of Pascal (Delphi & Lazarus) over the years, but it certainly isn't the language I use constantly. I haven't done much using Pascal Script, but the language is quite standard across the board - only need to search documentation (which isn't as comprehensive for PS as for other Pascals).

BTW, anyone noticed the errors in my code? Hint, it's usually associated with Lisp  :wink:

Autoloader is fine, but I have to serve also version beneath 2012 - so Autoloader can not serve these old versions.

Thought I'd share the bones of an approach I use with Inno Setup and Owen's fantastic LspLoad functions for setting up with all versions of AutoCAD and BricsCAD.  This takes a relatively simple approach by querying the last used AutoCAD version (assuming there are multiple versions installed) and setting up for that. 

The Inno Setup script below assumes packaging all the LspLoad.* files for each platform and version together and a single .lsp file 'Myapp.Lsp'  which might do something like this:

Code - Auto/Visual Lisp: [Select]
  1. (defun c:testapp()
  2. (alert (strcat "Path to Application: "(GetPathOfMyApp)));see readme for LspLoad about included function GetPathOf.....
  3. )
  4.  
  5. (princ "LspLoad App Loaded\nCommand \"TestApp\" defined")


Code below is an Inno Setup file (.iss)

DW, that's quite comprehensive!

BTW, it's sad that Pascal doesn't have a cond statement. Otherwise that bunch of nested ifs could have been a lot simpler. It does have a case statement, but is only allowed for ordinal types (not strings) ... unless it uses FreePascal as its underlying language (they've added string options to the case statement in FP) : http://freepascalanswers.wordpress.com/2013/01/26/language-additions/

Otherwise you could go this route to make yours a bit simpler: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14515492/using-case-statement-with-string

Inno setup script to do the following:

-Checks whether a particular version (or any version) is installed
-Add support paths (and optionally delete them when uninstalling).
-Add code to acaddoc.lsp (and optionally delete them when uninstalling).

Copy InnoAcInstall.iss to C:\Program Files\Inno Setup and take a look at one of the examples

Yes. Regrettably Byron stopped his developments.

The problem is that this version is 1.2 from 2002. A lot has changed since then in Acad environment.

acadInst.exe & AcadInst_x64.exe v1.7.0.48 (cuix files are not supported):
Wonderful. Thanks a lot.

Simple question: what should do actually acadinst.exe and .ini. If I compile iss I get this message. I did change shortcut to example "C:\Programme\AutoCAD 2002\AcadInst.exe" "Infrastructure" (that create a new supportpath with named Infrastructure)

I don't know the details, but

a) it seems that you use the old version of Acadinstall
b) I believe that the CHM of the new version will give you a lot of info
c) maybe your test command is missing some information: Write "Infrastructure" to which profile of which version? There is also an INI which has to be used by Acadinstall ..

:-o oh I not realy understand what I do
Simple question: what should do actually acadinst.exe and .ini. If I compile iss I get this message. I did change shortcut to example "C:\Programme\AutoCAD 2002\AcadInst.exe" "Infrastructure" (that create a new supportpath with named Infrastructure)

Example:

okay done!

Maybe a nother problem I have, in acadinst.ini are R15 or 16 version. I work with 2013 so it doesn´t run on this version or?

I don't know, but ..

a) The INI from JAR has the line
Versions=R17.0,R17.1,R17.2

Have you modified it for 2013?

b) As already mentioned not all features will work in "modern" versions - e.g. the MNU-features are outdated (or you will find a Workaround)

Thanks Peter!
Yes I did as 19.0 version but same result.
When I find out inno-ss compiler I was very happy to can do installpackage very easy and comfortable.
It´s a little difficult to know what should do acadinst-program so I believe I do not use this tool - strange. The second is to go back to my mainproblem install a Autolisp library in diffrent maps an maby modify support searchpath in Autocad so all collegues can easy setup my tools.
I think that is possible to do with iss.
Otherwise thanks again.

Hi,
there is an example how to find all installed AutoCAD versions at computer.
Just making a new installation package for AutoCAD Add-In with Inno Setup.
Code is not a final version and could have bugs. So use it wisely. =)

Hi Veli, this topic is old and I hope you see my post. thank you for your great project of Inno Setup, I could perform a project in inno setup with your functions. now I extremely need to copy a single file like a font to all Locations of Autocad. is it possible?

Hi,
I think you can add font to right location to use function GetInstalledAutoCADVersions(): Boolean;
It finds all installed AutoCAD versions on your computer. Just get location and add Fonts folder to copy your file there.
There is a global list (AcadInfos: AcadInfoArray;) where founded AutoCAD versions are readed.
