Software package MapInfo

Post21. Aug 2013, 16:01

Hi, can someone help me with my MapInfo problem?

I uninstall " MapInfo Professional V9.5.1 Maintenance Release 9.5.1" on my entire network and I can still see the information in “software packages” section. Where LOGINventory find this information? There is nothing in add/remove program.

Also the application " MapInfo Professional 11.5 " is now listed in the
« Hotfixes » section since version 10.5 Can I do something to change this?

I use the latest client version : 5.10.0-5701-RELEASED

As long as you have at least one PC, which has not been re-scanned after uninstall, you will find this SW package in the SW list.

The SW vendor's Setup or Install program is the only one which can decide whether it installs a "software package" or a "hotfix".
Sorry, we have no influence here, you should contact the SW vendor of MapInfo.

But You can do something like this within LOGINfo.ini:
Code: Select all
!BLOCK HOTFIX DISPNAME="MapInfo Professional 11.5"
!IF {fileexist:%Programfiles%\MapInfo\mapinfo.exe}
!ADD SOFTWARE DISPNAME="MapInfo Professional 11.5" PUBLISHER="Pitney Bowes"
!ENDIF


Please adjust the "fileexist" line with the real path.

Tks for the tip about LogInfo.ini. My problem is solved :D

For my "Maintenance Release" problem, i found the key in the registry to delete on each PC.

We have found the reason for this:
If a hotfix and a software package have exactly the same display name, the software package entry will be discarded.
This is also true for "Adobe Reader (10.1.7)" English version only, which internally is Reader 10.1.0 + seven hotfixes named "Adobe Reader (10.1.n)" where n= 1..7.

We are currently working on a solution, which will be released ASAP.
