Deployment files - Mulitple setups

P: n/a
I need to send out my program to many different customers. The program
is the same but the setup files in "File System on target machine" are
different. Each time I want to send to a different customer I need to
delete all the folders and files in the "Application Folder" and
recreate them again for the new customer, as each customer uses
different files. It is very time consuming. Is there an easier way to
do this?

Thanks,

Can't you add multiple setup projects to one solution.

I never tried it but don't see why you could not do it and set each one up
with different settings.

I would add a custom action to my setup project that copied all the files
from a known location to the installng machine. This way you can just
include a different folder with each installation and you will not have to
muck with the setup project or rebuild it for each different customer.

Hope that helps.
