Setup Project Problem

Hi all,

I was searching for a good place to post this question but I didn't find a
good one and I decide posting here.

I want to make a setup project for my app, I have many modules, I want to
provide some way to let the user choose the module he wants to install.

I made one msi per module, when the user installs the main application, I a
custom action that I made receives the targetdir as parameter and run all
other installers, I added a CheckBoxForms in order to provide an UI to select
the moduels, I set property names to each CheckBox, I tried to pass its value
to the custom aciton in order to know inside the action which modules the
user wants to install, but it doesn't works.

What is the right way to do that? any place with specific documentation?

When I build a setup project, the dependency in the setup project is tied to the version in which it was built. Is there a way to build a setup project that can be used in both versions of the Framework? There is provision to build the app's .exe so that the .exe can be used in either version of the framework, is there not a way to do this for the setup project? I looked at the options, did not find any. Did I miss something? --

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
