QuestionDownloading & Executing an Installer - User Cancels Pin
Kevin Marois13-Mar-23 12:52

I have an update process in my app that downloads an installer and runs it. If the user cancels the installer it throws a Win32Exception. The problem is that in the Catch all I get is the Exception with the message "The operation was cancelled by the user". Other than the text of the message, there's really no way to know for sure what exception occurred. I don't want to rely on the exception message.

Any way to trap this specific issue?

Here's my code:
private static void StartInstaller()
{
    try
    {
        // Start the installler
        _ = Process.Start(_localSetupFile);

        // Wait until it's started
        Process[] processes;

        do
        {
            processes = Process.GetProcessesByName(_processName);
            Thread.Sleep(1000);
        }
        while (processes.Length == 0);
    }
    catch (Win32Exception e)
    {
        // Problem here
    }
    catch (Exception e)
    {
        // Handle the error
        throw;
    }
}
If it's not broken, fix it until it is.
Everything makes sense in someone's mind.
Ya can't fix stupid.
