My Application as you may remember ONLY runs from the CD and is never installed onto a computer. It is a Product Support CD. All Information that a customer may need is on this CD, they can Download PDF's and Drawings and even save some Software Apps that may be needed onto the user's Hard Drive, but the CD App running is never installed onto a computer.

I have made updates to my programs, including a large update with the fonts on my forms. The only problem is this font is not found on vista or Windows XP and must be downloaded. The program is completely ruined with its looks without it. Is their a way so that both Windows XP and Vista could download these fonts, On startup of the first form, Form Load maybe? Even if the user says that he or she would like to see the program with the fonts? I just don't want to take the many hours i wasted resizing with the new fonts, ect. If it would be easier I could ask the user if they are using Windows XP, Or Vista?View 10 Replies View Related
I'm kind of shooting in the dark here - searches don't seem to be productive on this. I want to create a .NET program to monitor the install and uninstall of fonts. If something is installed or uninstalled, I want to run a program to do something.
I thought maybe a Windows Service, but haven't gotten very far with figuring out how to monitor fonts. Is this the right way and if so, what am I overlooking? If not, is there a different way to do this?

I'm using VB.NET 2003, and I'm using the installer that comes with the language. I remember reading on this forum a couple of years ago how to configure the installer so that it will automatically overwrite the previous installation. I had configured mine to do that and it worked great. Recently, the installer was lost do to a drive crash, and this trick was lost with it. I have looked through the forum for the post I read, but have not been able to find it. Does anyone know how to configure the built in installer to overwrite the previous installation when installing the program?View 4 Replies View Related

Using Visual Studio 2010, Windows 7. Setting up project on one machine, then attempting deployment it on another machine with Windows 7 on it:
How do you get the installer to install an application normally, my app is installing on roaming profile, and I do not want it to install that way . . . I want it to run as a normal software application, it is not created for network use!
In short, I want the application to install under the Program Files directory, and the data files to install under the ProgramData directory. I have already designated the Application Folder's DefaultLocation as [CommonAppDataFolder] and the application data folder as [CommonAppDataFolder], . . . but it makes no difference, it still installs as a roaming profile.
I have a ClickOnce app that has been working fine for a couple months, until a day or two back some internal politics borked the server. The result of this was that the path for ClickOnce during install changed just slightly at one intermediate level. It used to have /is/ in the path, and the is has changed to something else. I changed everything I could find, including recreating the whole target directory in IIS on the server. However, when I publish, though the link is correct, installation is failing. The log shows that, after checking and installing some prerequisites, the installation is attempting to go back to that /is/ path to find the app for installation.
Can anybody suggest where that invalid path is located? I have gone through every property I can find in Project|Properties, and they are correct. I have looked in App.config, and that is correct. Where else should I be looking?

I just finish my first application, and it is runing very nice on my computer, outsite IDE.But when I put it on another computer or in a virtual machine, i get some error and it is not running.In my application i have only controls, no dll, no nothing, except one picture.I have to mention that i have win7 on 64 bit and i use visual basic 2010 Express with netframework 4.0.
I also want to ask you what i have to do to make an install pack that contains microsoft installer and framework.I want to make a setup file with all this included.
I created a small application and an installer project for it. I can install and also run it, only thing htat i dont like is that during setup, it downloads .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and this takes long sometimes. I want to have it on the installation CD later.
I have seen in the installer's detected dependencies, that there is the 3.5 framework contained and it has a InstallURL property = [URL]..I am a little confused about all the Framework stuff on this site - so just 3 simple questions:
1) which file exactly do i have to download,
2) where to put it and
3) what to write into the property InstallURL then? (Maybe needed to change also other properties)?

I am using a 3rd party dll in an application and the installer does not register the component irrespective of any settings in the install package.It will register manually though using regsrv32 after installation.My question is how can I use the System. Diagnostics. Process.Start("cmd.exe")function to call the regsvr32 with the dll name after installation from the install package, also the correct syntax for referencing the installation folser if the user amends it on install so that it doesn't fail on execution because of spaces.Dim stRegPath as String= "regsvr32 & "" & Path.GetDirectoryName (Assembly. GetExecutingAssembly().Location) & "rogue.dll".View 3 Replies View Related

I built a Windows application and I created the setup file and it installs and runs like I want it to. I would like the application to install in a certain directory on the computer it is installing on.

I am seeking advice or clarification of feasibility.Ihave a VB.NET (2008) application that, as an administrative tool,generates a user id, password and business role, and creates a file on disk with the aforementioned as content. This file needs to be deployed to users via a setup program that will put the file in a fixed path I specify. I was wondering if it is possible (and if so how complex it might b to mimic the functionality of the IDEs setup and deployment wizard within the application (that is to say buildthe msi file and setup.exesupplying the parameter of installation path).View 5 Replies View Related

I've been busy with work and other bits and bobs and not really had much time for programming... but anyway, I have just written a fairly simple windows service in VB.NET and although I can install it on my PCs/servers using the command line InstallUtil.exe component, this isnt ideal for other people that may need to install it without my assistance.
So basically I just need to know how to get a normal Setup and Deployment VS project to install this service itself... I thought it would be as simple as selecting the service assembly to include in the deployment project and building it, but unfortunately that seems to do naff all. Do I need to use a 'Custom Action' in the setup project (and if so, how/what do I do?)

I'm making a setup project for my application. I have a file, dbconnection.xml, that I want to be installed to C:Program filesmyAppdbconnection.xml regardless of where the user chooses to install the application. I've added the program files 'special folder' and have a subfolder, myApp, under that where I place this xml file.
For whatever reason, no matter where the user installs the application to, the XML file is placed in the install directory, not in c:program filesmyApp.

Its two programs that work together called Script Writer and Script. My problem is, I need something that will install it on other peoples machines and will be easy to install and use to make. or possibly a way to manipulate the publish option under Vb 2008 to make a setup.exe for the file that won't install it in a funky place. It also needs to install both programs in the same directory. Because Script pulls its information from output.txt which Script Writer, writes information to output.txt. I can share the Vb scripts if you like. But I'm kinda perplexed on this. I've tried installing it after publishing it, then I go to the installation folder and copy its contents, then paste them in a seperate folder on my desktop. It works on my computer but not other peoples computers. Also when publishing my program from VB 2008 it won't publish anything in my debug folder, so html.txt and output.txt doesn't get published with the setup and doesn't install when the setup is ran. So I'm having a few problems here.[url]...View 19 Replies View Related

My clickonce app has the following pre-requisites: Windows Installer 3.1 .NET Framework 3.5 Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Report Viewer Microsoft Visual Basic Power Packs 3.0 SQL Server 2005 Express Edition SP2 (x86) The application has been successfully installed on more than 30 computers. All but 2 computers, have had installation problems.
For awhile, one of the two computers in question, would not resolve installation of SQL server 2005 Express edition. It would go through the motions of downloading the program and then attempting an install and after a good 30 minutes, an error would show up indicating that the installation had failed. The user continued to have a nuisance error pop up appear when he'd log into his computer.Long story short, I resolved that problem. So now all of the pre-requisites are installed and confirmed as successfully installed. The clickonce application does not install however. The following log file was created as a result of this error:
