Changes in version 5.5.7:
Changes in default behavior:
Shaft recommended by Microsoft’s desktop applications guideline, DisableWelcomePage now defaults to yes. Additionally DisableDirPage and DisableProgramGroupPage now default to auto. The defaults in all previous versions were no.
The Setup and Uninstall programs are now marked as DEP and ASLR compatible. This can be disabled by setting the new DEPCompatible and ASLRCompatible [Setup] section directives to no. Doing this for DEP compatibility might be needed if you’re using a buggy third-party DLL from [Code].
The Compiler IDE’s New Script Wizard now offers to create a shortcut to the main executable in the Common Start Menu Programs Folder Instead of creating a new Start Menu Folder especially for the application. This option is enabled by default and is recommended by Microsoft Unless you install a suite of applications rather than a single application.
The Wizard Wizard Small Image File and Image File [Setup] section directives now support 32-bit bitmap files with an alpha channel. Use the new Wizard Alpha Image Format [Setup] section directive to Specify if the bitmap file Has its red, green and blue channel values premultiplied with the alpha channel value or not. Contributed by Honza Rameš via GitHub.
The Wizard Image Backcolor [Setup] section directive is now deprecated and ignored, just like the similar Wizard SmallImage Backcolor directive was already. Any unused space around the wizard image is now filled with the standard window color (usually white).
[Setup] section directive Close Applications can now be set to force. If it is, Setup will force close When closing applications. Use with care since this May cause the user to lose unsaved work.
Added new command line parameters supported by Setup: / FORCE APPLICATIONS CLOSE and / NOFORCECLOSEAPPLICATIONS. These can be used to override the Close Applications directive.
The ATTRIBS parameter of a [Files] or [Dir] entry May ook now include notcontentindexed to Specify That the file or directory is not to be indexed by the content indexing service.
Pascal Scripting changes:
RegQueryBinaryValue function can now be used to query any type of registry value and not just Reg_binary -type values.
Class TBitmapImage now supports 32-bit bitmap files with an alpha channel. Make sure to set the Bitmap.AlphaFormat property before loading the bitmap file.
Added new functions GetOpenFileNameMulti and SelectNewDisk.
Added C # version of the DLL MyDLL.DLL example showing how to call .NET assemblies from [Code] without that demand or other COM DLLs. Uses Unmanaged Exports by Robert Giesecke.
Unicode [Code] based on RemObjects PascalScript Git commit bfc1255636eb959f102d0279721b05ba85fbe7da.
