Summary0014112: NSIS installer shows new version's display name in prompt to uninstall
DescriptionWhen CPACK_NSIS_ENABLE_UNINSTALL_BEFORE_INSTALL is set, the installer checks for a previously installed version. If it detects one, it displays a prompt to uninstall that reads "X is already installed." However, X is the display name for the new version that is about to be installed, not for the old version that is already installed. This is bound to confuse users. I'm submitting a patch to read the display name for the old version from the registry and display it in the message box.
TagsNo tags attached.
