Changes in cersion 6.0.0 beta

Inno Setup 6 introduces a large number of changes:

administrative vs. non-administrative install mode

A number of changes have been made to the administrative vs. non-administrative install mode functionality:

  • Added new “auto” constants which automatically map to their “common” form unless the installation is running in non administrative install mode, in which case they map to their “user” form. It is recommended to update your scripts to use these “auto” constants as much as possible to avoid mistakes. The list of added “auto” constants is: {autoappdata}, {autocf}, {autocf32}, {autocf64}, {autodesktop}, {autodocs}, {autopf}, {autopf32}, {autopf64}, {autoprograms}, {autostartmenu}, {autostartup}, and {autotemplates}.
  • Updated all examples and the Compiler IDE’s New Script Wizard to use {autopf} instead of {pf}, etc.
  • Change in default behavior: The “common” shell folder constants are no longer mapped to their “user” form if the installation is running in non administrative install mode. Instead they simply return the requested common directory. The list of affected “common” constants is: {commonappdata}, {commondesktop}, {commondocs}, {commonprograms}, {commonstartmenu}, {commonstartup}, and {commontemplates}.
  • The {pf} and {cf} constants have been renamed to {commonpf} and {commoncf}. This includes {pf32} to {commonpf32}, etc. The old names are still supported, but it is recommended to update your scripts to the new names and the compiler will issue a warning if you don’t.
  • The {commonfavorites} constant has been removed: this directory doesn’t exist anymore in Windows.
  • The {userpf}, {usercf}, and {username} constants and the AlwaysUsePersonalGroup [Setup] section directive can now correctly trigger a used user areas warning.
  • Pascal Scripting change: Removed the GetShellFolder support function. As the help file already recommended, use ExpandConstant instead.
  • Added new [Registry] section Root value HKA. Equals HKLM in administrative install mode, and HKCU otherwise. Also supported by {reg:…} constants and HKA32/HKA64 are also supported. Note: HKA (like HKCU) should only be used for settings which are compatible with roaming profiles.
  • using [Registry] section Root value HKCR is no longer recommended, use HKA with the Subkey parameter set to “Software\Classes” instead.
  • Pascal Scripting change: Added HKA and HKEY_AUTO constants. HKA32, HKA64, HKEY_AUTO_32, and HKEY_AUTO_64 are also supported.
  • The Compiler IDE’s New Script Wizard now offers an option to select administrative or non administrative install mode and outputs scripts which work in both modes.
  • Pascal Scripting change: Added new IsAdminInstallMode support function.
  • Added a Non Administrative Install Mode topic to the help file.
