Some questions about setup project RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm going to create a setup project (using visual studio 2005)

    My setup project creates 2 different folders: one for my winapp and anoter one for an external installer that should be run during the installation.

    I create another assembly for the CustomAction that manage the external installer. (with process.Start() method)

    Question 1: Is there a standar way(or a better way) to manage the internal installation of third party installers (msi or exe)?

    Question 2: Where do I install the CustomAction assembly? Should I create a new folder in the setup project only for this?

    Question 3: My CustomAction assembly has some references to the same assemblies of my winapp and, when I try to install the CustomAction assembly in another folder, the setup project detects that the dependencies are already installed in the winapp folder, and doesn't install all the required dependency in my CustomAction folder. Any Ideas?

    Thanks for the help.
