We are updating one of our products, and are running an uninstall prior install. The original installer/uninstaller dates back to SUF 7.0.
The uninstall.exe crashes with an exception immediately on launch. This was tested extensively, so I know it used to work with the versions available then.
I am currently using SUF 7 and it works great...

Several times it has been said that the action plug-ins for AMS50 can be used with SUF70. I wondered, what about the PopUP Menu plug in (Icy North)?

What would it take to have SUF version 7 read an external file to set some session variables like %ProductVer% prior to showing the first install screen, so the setup session uses those variables?

Does anybody have a SQL 2005 Native Client dependency?
Or how would I check if it is already installed? That would be enough for the first shot.
How would I most rapidly create one if I never coded a setup before?
Is there a way that the "setup.exe", created by SUF 7.0, is able to determine the user's inactivity( system idle ) for certain amount of time?
Has anyone been successful in returning any return codes other than 0 when using Application.Exit and Applicaiton.ExitScript in SF7? I've also tried the trial version 8.2 and no luck.

I've tried a variety of numbers with the same result,...

I'm searching for a reliable way to detect if a target-system has a correct installed and enabled soundcard.

SUF7 cannot reliably read the registry in 64bit os's

We never upgraded from 6.0 to 7.0 because it looked like a lot of work to change our install settings. But I get an error when the 6.0 install exe runs on my Windows 7 system. See attached file for error.
