Why/when would app installer require quitting all apps?
I just had the experience of running an installer for a new app,
TurboTax 2003, which notified me that it required that all other apps
quit. I'm running OS X 10.3.2, and as usual under OS X, all kinds of
things are going on with my computer, and it wasn't convenient to quit
everything. But this brings up a question: why on EARTH would an app
like this want to quit all other running apps? Isn't this contrary to
the spirit of OS X? I can understand that if I install an OS update,
well, I have to restart. But why would a normal app do this? My
hypothesis is that it...Question about installing my app with Wise Installation System 5.0g
I have been using my licensed copy of Wise Installation System version
5.0g for years. Only yesterday did I discover that when "Replace
Existing File" is set to "Never" (on the Install Files from
Installation Executable screen), the Install.log following
installation still says it is overwriting the file in question.
The particular file is the VB runtime MSVBVM60.DLL
I do not want to install this file if it already exists. My
application functions with ANY version of this DLL, so as long as it
is present, my app will work.
And so I have set the option to "Never"...Where to install apps?
This is something about Linux that has always confused me. In which
directory should one install applications? Is there a standard location?
I posted a request on here a few weeks ago for some help in getting a list
of installed applications on a Windows 2000 PC using VB6. I got a reply back
showing how to query the uninstall list which was superb and did exactly
what I wanted. I now have a need to expand that a bit and provide the last
date used for these applications as is displayed in Control Panel ->
...Setting up an installer to install a VB app on an NT Server 4.0
I've always hated the package & deployment installer that comes with VB 6
Enterprise, so I'm looking to use the Inno installer instead.
However my problems are as follows:
1) I have created a small app that to me only use the INET control and the
FileSystemObject reference. My idea was to package the app using the
standard pants package and then pull the files out that it packages for my
own installer. Is this an OK method?
2) Apart from the above controls that I have just mentioned, will I need to
package the VB run time file(s) for the NT 4.0 Server - Service Pack 5 ...save all settings (desktop, modem/isp, mail, installed apps, "Linux base-installation" )
I am new to Linux(at the moment i am experimenting with Knoppix)
Is there a way to save all settings (desktop, modem/isp, mail,
installed apps, "Linux base-installation") ?
The purpose of that procedure is that after restoring the known-good
baseline hd-image(e.g. taken after the installation of Linux),
i would like to be able to "restore/apply" these "system-changes"
without the need to configure the system manually.
Or are there better approaches?

1. This is about installing 11i Apps 11.5.10 on Win 2000.
We are attempting to load Vision in order to see the default settings,

The app is a crossed platform.
1.Can Java return me the name/position of install app on the OS it

OS/2 ? Is your boss telling you your app has to support this?
MGL? What's that?
The Java platform runs on all modern OSes... UNIX/Win32/Mac, and plenty
more. Full list can be found on...installing freeware apps.

Worked fine no worries. Now that I want to laod it up again i've found I
