06-05-2008, 09:50 AM

I have my app installer that was written using is2008 (MSI Installscript), I was wondering if someone out there has tried to upgrade their installer from IS2008 to IS2009 and what were the results.?

I have a need support .NET 3.5 and SQLServer which I could do using IS 2008 but still wanted to know if I could get some extra perks for converting my project to 2009 and also if there were any know "issues"?

I've not had any issues yet with my projects.

What types of pre-reqs you are supporting in the project that you have converted to IS2009?

Also did you have any custom InstallScript code within IS2008 project?
