Release Notes

DreamShield's release of April 2009

  • Improved the format of the data archives (The speed of extraction of files from the archive has been slightly improved)
  • It is now possible to use directly (without a plugin) global environment variables as {Common Programs} for the Start Menu of the current user
  • In the file editor (in the installation project), making a right click on the view file you now have access to a menu "Add> Add a special Folder" which allows you to quickly create a folder that will be installed to specific targets such as the user's desktop or start menu
  • The standard project Wizard now ask for the path to the main application in addition to the folder containing the files. If this application is defined the wizard will automatically create shortcuts to it on the desktop and start menu.
  • In the file editor when right click on a file, there is now a menu "Shortcuts > Create a shortcut to *** in ..." which allows to quickly create a shortcut to the selected file in a special folder as the user's desktop.
  • Addition of a "service manager" in the project editor. Being currently at an experimental stage (until the next update?) it allows to define some action to perform on a service at the installation or uninstallation process. For example, you can select a service from the list, such as Theme, and define it action at the end of the installation to be "Restart" to restart this service after the end of the installation process.
  • Addition of a tool accessible via the menu (top) "Tools> DreamShield IDE> Gestionnaire des runtimes du .NET Framework" that displays the list of framework supported by DreamShield and allows you to download if you want the corresponding dotnetfx if you need to redistribute it. By default, only the redistributable for the .NET 2.0 is included (because they are huge and I do not want to unnecessarily increase the size of DreamShield). But if your project uses and must redistribute the Framework 3.0, you can use this tool to automatically download and save in the correct folder the corresponding redistributable.
  • In the file editor, added a menu (right click on the view file) "Edit" which allows you to execute actions "Cut / Copy / Paste" with the elements (files or folders) of the project.
