View Full Version : Patching question

07-22-2005, 10:19 AM
I need to write a patch package for an applicaton, which is straightforward enough but I also need this patch to stop a service before applying the patch and cleaning out a cache directory before restarting the service. Can anyone tell me how to do this? or point me in the right direction?

In the component's advanced settings you can specify to stop and re-start services during the install. (Make sure the service exe is the key file of the component)
To clear files that your application created at runtime you could either populate the RemoveFile table or write a custom actions.
