#22053 new defect

Windows installer shows no success message

Reported by: GerdP Owned by: team
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Installer Windows Version:
Keywords: template_report Cc: Don-vip


What steps will reproduce the problem?

  1. Download josm-setup.exe
  2. Double click to start
  3. See a "Please wait" popup which disappears quickly.

What is the expected result?

A popup that asks for options or shows success with a hint how to continue or an option to launch the program.

What happens instead?

Nothing obvious, setup stops silently. It took me some time to find out that a new JOSM icon appeared on my desktop.

Please provide any additional information below. Attach a screenshot if possible.

Looking at , we don't have the following options set for Windows:

  • --win-shortcut-prompt
  • --win-update-url (Add/Remove programs)
  • --win-help-url (Add/Remove programs)

The --win-shortcut-prompt might force the installer to show a question at the end ("Add shortcuts?"), but I don't know.

The script used to make the installer is located at source:trunk/native/windows/

Hopefully we don't have to edit source:trunk/native/windows/main.wxs (documentation, but might be v4 (I think v3, since we are adding WiX Toolset v3.11 to the $GITHUB_PATH variable)). If so,

  • native/windows/main.wxs

    diff --git a/native/windows/main.wxs b/native/windows/main.wxs
    index fa509d9310..b2f2f1a6d1 100644
    a b  
    147147      <RemoveExistingProducts Before="CostInitialize"/>
    148148    </InstallExecuteSequence>
     150    <UI>
     151      <Publish Dialog="ExitDlg" Control="Finish"/>
     152    </UI>
    150154  </Product>

might work, but since I don't have a windows machine, I cannot test that. I don't think I can even build it. If I have to, I can try testing using GitHub actions. I'll have to check and see if we are only building the releases on the main branch.

Hm, opposite on my side: I don't have a recent linux system running, not even any virtual machines since years.

Replying to GerdP:

I could probably try fiddling with WINE, but I know that it isn't perfect, so things could work under WINE but not under Windows. That is unlikely though.
