Create setup

P: n/a
Hi,

I want to create a setup for my C# 2.0 exe application.

Exists there a project type for this in Visual Studio 2005?
Is there something to consider (some traps I should know)?

Hi Christian,

its me again, Kerem...;-)
yes, there is a Setup Project, at last my IDE has one (and more).
But i dont recommend you to use the Setup comming
with VStudio. There are other Open Source Installers
available out there that can produce MSI or other formats
and are much easier to use than the VS Installers. Here are
some i can recommend due my experience with them:

http://www.ethalone.com/download.php
http://sourceforge.net/projects/wix/
http://sourceforge.net/projects/spoon-installer

But WIX is best i would say here,...and its open source!

Regards

Kerem

Hi Kerem,

thanks for help, again ;-)

Could there be any problems when the setup is executed on Windows Vista?

Hi Christian,
>Could there be any problems when the setup

this depends on WHAT you want to install WHERE.
The installers are very good and sophisticated but
Vista has a lot if limitations (UAC&Misc) so you have
to Install in common under administrator account unless
you install everything in your own user space. But the
installation limitations are the same like with all other
installation applications, see here:

There are a lot of cases and lots of information out there you can
find in newsgroups,...
