View Full Version : Installer with just Redistributables

Can anybody explain to me how I can terminate the installer after the redistributables have been installed. We have a request to have the redistributables in a separate installer therfore once they are installed it just needs to terminate and not do anything else.

I'm not sure I understand your question. By "redistributables", do you mean merge modules? If so, can't you just create an installer that has the merge modules you want assigned to a feature, with no other components in it?

There are no features setup. There are just some prerequisite redistributables. Once these have been triggered by the installed I just want it to end but it continues trying to run a normal installer.

Have you considered using an InstallScript project? You could kick off the redistributables in either OnBegin or OnFirstUIBefore, then abort the installation.
