Error: "No matching % for a variable name."
Wise Package Studio
Wise Installation Studio
Wise Installation Systems
Has a percentage before a string within the registry key value.
Need to pre-append another percentage in front of the existing percentage.
For example, let's compare registry key values to demonstrate:
%Test ~ Will not allow you to compile
%%Test ~ Will allow you to compile
It will only install %Test on the box. The extra percentage is to notify Wise Installer that the % is not intended to reference a variable.
Note: This behavior will happen in registry keys, INI file, Insert Line in text file, Display Message, Custom Dialogs or in any location where a variable can be referenced.
