Admin rights

Hi,

I'm tryng to move a file to Windows/SysWOW64

How can I do?

Have I to manage admin rights? How?

How is the path? WinDir or have I to use the normal path (C:\Windows\SysWOW64 ecc)?

Thanks.

I know SysWOW64 only exists

I know SysWOW64 only exists in 64 bit Windows. But I am asking the bit of the application not the os. If the app is 64 bit then is the file you want to move also 64 bit?

Sorry I forgot PAL is 32 bit.

Sorry I forgot PAL is 32 bit.

Create a Custom.nsh file with the following content and put it in the same directory of the launcher ini.

${SegmentFile}

${SegmentInit}
${SetEnvironmentVariablesPath} SYSDIR $SYSDIR
!macroend

In launcher ini:

[Launch]
RunAsAdmin=force

[FilesMove]
yourfile.ext=%SYSDIR%

Assume yourfile.ext is in Data directory.

Thanks.

Until tomorrow after, I couldn't test your code, so, I'll let you know soon...

If the program were in 32 bit what have I to do? (could be good for the next time)...

32 bit file alway go to SysWOW64 in 64 bit system. My code should work for 32 bit program too. However my code will not work for 64 bit file need to go to System32 directory in 64 bit system.

I don't understand...

I don't understand...

I've followed step-by-step your instruction, but the files don't move.
(Is the same behaviour I obtained writing it with NSIS directly).

May this is a bug in NSIS?

Printer and scanner dirvers

Printer and scanner dirvers are not portable. Your portable drivers can't move because the local one are in used, and cannot be rename. It is no use even your portable drivers can be moved because you need to restart your machine to make the drivers work.
