PRA: Cannot Include Comma in App Name Using Setup Wizard

Article ID: Q101085
Creation Date: 04-JUL-1993
Revision Date: 05-FEB-1996 The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Access Distribution Kit version 1.1

SYMPTOMS


When you run a Setup program developed using the Microsoft Access Setup Wizard, the Program Manager group and icon text is truncated and the custom icon is not displayed.

CAUSE


When prompted for the name of your application, you typed a name that included a comma. The Program Manager group and icon text displays everything up to, but not including, the comma.

STATUS


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft Access Distribution Kit version 1.1. This problem no longer occurs in the Microsoft Access Developer's Toolkit version 2.0.

Steps to Reproduce Problem


  1. Run the Microsoft Access Setup Wizard.
  2. When the "What is the name of your application?" message appears, type the following:

          Thomas, Rolm, Buchannan
  3. Finish running the Setup Wizard.
  4. Run your custom Setup program. Note that only "Thomas" appears in the new Program Manager group name and icon text.
