Request for deployment. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Sorry for the following comments but your addin, which is a very good one, is a nightmare to deploy.

    Why ? Because we cannot manage repair of the installation, uninstallation is not complete and installation folder and product code change at each installation.

    Have you some more detailed advices to deploy this addin or is there a possibility to create an MSI of your project ?

    Sorry again for my comments and thank you for your response.

  • Yes, uninstallation isn't clean - and I don't understand why (I've included some instructions in the readme file, and perhaps should consider automating them somehow.)

    Regarding an MSI install: installation details are mentioned in http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/researchdesktop/thread/c0158ac3-0d06-4e77-9e54-fa3072355d5e further down in this forum which might help (those steps could be rolled into an MSI file, perhaps).

    Unfortunately, at the moment, I don't have much time to put into improving this at the moment, but it is on my todo list.

  • In release 3.0, just published, I've changed the installer technology to MSI, which should allow for better control of the installation process. Any comments you have on that - things that could be done better, for example, are welcome.
