Release Setup Project / Setup

Feb 27, 2009

I've finally got a project compiled and tested and ready to roll out.I have discovered that the "Publish" option is not what it seems, and that we must create a separate "Setup Project" to carry out the task of installing the files.This is not the most intuitive process I've seen, and the online help on that subject is not easy to understand.I was hoping that someone could direct me to a tutorial or guide that would step me through the specific approach I need. Many of the other guides online are vague and address multiple scenarios and do not separate the approaches very well.I have the contents of my project in /bin/release. It runs nicely by iteself with no errors.Here's what I need:

1. To create a setup exe that I can distribute that will install my software, with all of the supporting (resource) files and folders.
2. I need the setup process to force the installer to "agree" to a EULA.
3. I'd would like to provide an image on the installation screen/popup.
4. I would like the software registered in the registry and rely on it being there in the registry.
5. I need it to default to program filesprojectname (it does by default)

Setup In Win 7 - Using VS 2008 VB And Setup My Application Software In Win XP

Jun 8, 2011

I am using VS 2008 VB and setup my application software in Win XP without any issue. But after installed in Win 7, it doesn't work well (it show one file not found, but I saw the file in the right folder). Could it be the incompatibility of VS 2008 and Win 7? If I upgrade to VS 2010, will the issue be fixed?

Deploying Application With Setup.exe And Setup.msi?

Oct 29, 2011

I'm a Visual Basic beginner. There are many things that I didn't know about Windows software development as I've been a Mac user for 20 years and just started developing Windows programs several days ago.

Anyway, using Visual Studio Installer (File > Add > New Project > Visual Studio Installer), I have two files inside the Release folder - setup.exe and Setup.msi. I've got some information about these files.So when you publish your software, what do you do with these two files? According to one web site, you can put them together into one with IExpress, which produces a file with an extension of CAB. Another web site suggests SFX Compiler. In the meantime, I downloaded a dozen applications at Download.com earlier. If I click on the download button, the final delivery extension is .exe on most of them. I know that you won't go anywhere by double-clicking on setup.exe from the Release folder without Setup.msi. Meanwhile, Setup.msi is a tand-alone application. But nobody uses this file alone to distribute their product.

Setup And Deploy - Setup File Can Just Be One .exe Rather Then A Setup File And A Data File?

Aug 7, 2009

Setup and deploy for my project worked fine for a while allowing you to install my program and uninstall the old version, but now it installs two entries. I don't get it, before I got it do do that it would give an error that it needed to be uninstalled first. Now like I said I get two entries in the programs uninstall window. RemovePreviousVersions = true. I change the version number and update the product code. Even tried changing the upgrade code. I just don't get why it doesn't work anymore, and its really annoying! Also, is there a way that the setup file can just be one .exe rather then a setup file and a data file?

Ok, imagine the simplest solution in Visual Studio 2008 with framework 3.5 (OS = Win XP) where I have added a class library. Then I've added a COM Class. This COM Class is so simple, it only exposes 1 function:

Public Function SayHello() As String
Return " Hello."

IDE :: Setup Project Upgrade Code?

Oct 22, 2009

I have an application which has been deployed in a setup programme, but have lost the original project setup code.The new versions setup project has a different 'Upgrade code' GUI in the setup projectand therefore when you try and upgrade the product it throws an error saying that a later version of the product is installed!

Is there any way for me to retrieve the Upgrade Code from an installed version of the program so that I can amend the new installer to match the old program.The program has to be installed to 350+ desktops via active directory, so no answers with silly shortcuts that only work for a single PC please people.

IDE :: User Interface In Setup Project?

Dec 23, 2009

i have few questions about the user interface when working with a VS setup project

1. i have added a Checkboxes dialog, i have 3 checkboxes they are used to select upon 3 tools to be installed, so during the progress of the instilation, how should i let the project know which of the 3 tools was selected ? (i hope i was clear)

2. a bit of silly question - is it possible to edit something in a dialog ? like in my case in the "finished" dialog my customer didnt like the the end button is named "close" and he wants it to be named "Finish"

finally, this is an extra non programing but it would be good if i was able to find an answere :P, when i plug a USB in the computer it opens the autoplay, and i have my instilation file in the USB (it will be distributed on a USB rather than a CD), so i want to add to the autoplay a button that runs the instilation file

Setup Project / Unable To Upgrade

Jul 10, 2009

I create my setup packages.I then run setup.exe and I go through the whole process.Only problem: My application doesn't actually update.I know, because when logging to a file, I write a string that I manually modify with'version' information, prior to building the setup project.When I then run my application, this string is written to that file.Before the update and after the update, that version info is the same.If I then uninstall my application ( and then I must do this - remove the application folder ( that was previously created ), which was never removed during the uninstall ), and then re-run my setup, the version info is now correct.

NOW --When I took the setup disk to another computer, it "crashes" can't even post the warning it's trying to give. (Yet, it was fine when I left everything alone, the namespace and rootname that is).

All I wanted was a setup file with a name other than my project name.
