View Full Version : .msp that updates dlls

05-20-2005, 12:59 PM
I've got an existing MSI (manufacturer created) that installs an app. Since receiving this MSI, The manufacturer gives me updated DLLs for this app. Plain old DLLs, no setup or anything. I have a directory with all the updated DLLs. Currently, when I install the MSI onto a new PC, afterwards, I manually copy all these DLLs to the PC. I want to create a patch (.msp) that copies the "current" set of DLLs to my clients. I may have to do this every month or so. How can I manually add all the DLLs in the directory to the patch? It seems like I have to add each file one by one.

Also, Is a patch the best solution for me??

Perhaps see if a QuickPatch project would work for you?

I'm trying that now, but it seems like every time I create a new QuickPatch (when the next set of DLLs come out), I have to re-add all 100+ files to the project. Is there a quicker way?
