doPDF Installer is missing "DisplayVersion" key

Postby AngusSF-LC » Fri Nov 08, 2013 8:05 pm

My systems-management suite can't tell which version of doPDF is installed, and the reason is a missing key in the registry. This makes it difficult to tell which exact version is installed.

When you install doPDF, it installs the following keys in Windows Vista:

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\doPDF 7 printer_is1]
"Inno Setup: Setup Version"="5.3.8 (u)"
"Inno Setup: App Path"="C:\\Program Files\\doPDF 7"
"InstallLocation"="C:\\Program Files\\doPDF 7\\"
"Inno Setup: Icon Group"="doPDF 7"
"Inno Setup: User"="SYSADMIN"
"Inno Setup: Language"="en"
"DisplayName"="doPDF 7.3 printer"
"UninstallString"="\"C:\\Program Files\\doPDF 7\\unins000.exe\""
"QuietUninstallString"="\"C:\\Program Files\\doPDF 7\\unins000.exe\" /SILENT"
"Publisher"="Softland"
"URLInfoAbout"="http://www.dopdf.com"
"HelpLink"="http://www.dopdf.com"
"URLUpdateInfo"="http://www.dopdf.com"
"NoModify"=dword:00000001
"NoRepair"=dword:00000001
"InstallDate"="20130805"

It needs at least one additional key:

Code: Select all

"DisplayVersion"="7.3.393"


In addition, if you add the "DisplayVersion" key, it would be a Good Thing to change the "DisplayName" key to just "doPDF printer".

We're close to releasing the new version of doPDF which has a completely different installer system.

I hope it has the correct registry key setup ;-)
Is there a beta version available anywhere?

We don't have a public beta available yet, we'll send notifications when it's available.
