Install Windows Service Via Setup And Deployment Project

Apr 27, 2009

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?)

How To Create TXT File When Running Setup Project

May 13, 2009

I'm trying to do a setup project with VS2008 for my VB .NET application. I would need to create a text file into the installation directory based on the answers the user who installs the program gives. Idea is that I need to have the installation path variable in a text file so that I can read it. And also some other directory specifications too.

I could do the following:
Write the wanted information to the window registry and after the installation is ready, create another application that is run at the end of the installation to create these files.

C# - Setup Project Does Not Create File System Folders During Installation

Aug 31, 2010

I want to create personal folders during installation. I did the following steps:

Right click on your setup project ->
View -> File System
Right click on node "File system on

[Code]....

I know the above steps are correct and should work because i did it in the other application (solution) and worked fine. When i did same exact steps (of course i changed the folder name to be created), the application gets deployed but when i install, i don't get the Personal Folder under Documents? I wonder why did it work with my first solution and didn't work with the current one!

Include A Separate Initialization File With Setup Package?

Feb 8, 2010

I have developed a windows forms desktop application using vb.net 2005. It is installed on client computers using a setup package.

One of the clients wants to redistribute the setup package to other users.

He wants to provide the users with an initialization file containing the database server name which they will be using, so that it is available when the application is installed. They are apparently incapable of physically typing in a server name themselves after installing the application.

Is there any way I can include a separate file with the setup package which the application can find after it has been installed?

IDE :: .htm File Doesn't Work After Deployment And Install On Client

May 27, 2009

I have a windows project completed and am using an MDI with a help menu.So now I'm working with a click once deployment.When the user clicks help, it should load an .HTM file, but instead, when installed on the client it gets a "page cannot be displayed error".

I created the file in word. Saved as an .HTM. along with it came the images folder. I placed it in the bin/debug folder. I've made sure all the images and the .HTM files are set to Build Action = content and Copy Always. These files are copied out to the deployment website. It shows as "required(auto)" under appication settings, publish. Everything else in the deployment works nicely, including Crystal Reports and Powerpacks.So what is going wrong with this?The help is a windows form with a browser control on it and the following code.Note that the Catch on the Try doesnt kick in either on the client.

Private Sub Help_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
'change mouse pointer to hourglass
Cursor.Current = Cursors.WaitCursor

Visual Studio - .NET 2010 Project Setup/Installation Package?

Feb 3, 2011

I've created a setup project for a VB.NET 2010 application that I've written. The application, and the installer both work fine on my development machine.The installer works fine on other machines, but when I run my application it immediately crashes and dies without telling me anything useful. I've tried it on Windows 7, Windows XP, and Windows Vista machines... and all had the same problem, so I think it's more of a package configuration issue than a machine-specific problem.Here's the most useful information that I was able to get out of it:

VS 2010 Setup & Deployment Project?

Apr 26, 2012

For my .Net desktop apps I usually create an MSI installer (I create a 2nd project in my solution, a Setup & Deployment project) and I zip the setup.exe file with the <appname>.msi files together and put them up for download on my site. The installer will go through the process of asking where they would like to install the application (it creates the needed shortcuts and everything).

Right now I'm looking at adding a feature to some of these programs where it'll periodically check it's corresponding xml file on my web server and see if there's a newer version of itself available. I have this portion working just fine, where I'm stuck is that I would like to have it download a separate msi installer to update itself.

The idea is that it would download this different msi file, execute it while the app closes itself. This msi would not ask any questions, it would simply update the needed files in whatever location the first msi installer put the app. When this updater msi is done, it would just re-start the application.How would I go about making an msi installer that doesn't have any prompts and installs the application where ever the first msi installer put it (where ever the user chose to install it to)?

Apr 8, 2009

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?

Using 2008 EXPRESS. I went to project properties and (1) renamed the assembly name and (2) the root namespace fields with my desired name. (But didn't rename the project).

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.

VS 2008 Setup Project Is Not Replacing .exe File?

Sep 6, 2010

I created a setup project along with my main program everything compiles ok and I'm able to install a successfully. The problem I am experiencing is when I try to install over the previous version. I have set the setup property RemovePreviousVersion to TRUE , DetectNewerInstalledVersion to TRUE and I also increment the Version number and choose Yes when prompted to automatically change the ProductCode.

What I find is that when I install my program, the date on a subfolder changes, I don't expect the dates of the support files to change. but I do expect the date of my main .exe file to change. Unfortunately it stays the same. Running the program also shows that this file was not updated. I have read the MSDN articles on this but cannot figure it out.
