View Full Version : creating a multiple application installer for .net projects

06-21-2005, 05:59 AM

i have 2 .net solutions, each containing multiple projects.
i would like to create a windows installer, which will allow the user to select among the 2 applications (ie. a web application & a windows service).

i am using installshield11.0, i would like to know what kind of install project do i choose, for such a requirement.

ie. if the user chooses to install the web application then
1. it should ask for the virtual dir name , to be created.
2. should modify its web.config files, etc.

& if the user chooses to install the windows service.
1. should install the service.
2. & modify its config files.

I would suggest that you set this up as a web based installation becuse you can still install standard files as well. Then condition your dialogues and components based on which option the user chooses.
