View Full Version : self-register dlls

I'm trying to make work a project imported from IS5.1 (I used the beta 5.1
to 5.5 utility) which has quite a long Installscript functionality. The
problem is that when installing, while all the files are correctly copied to
the target machine, no dll is registered. Can someone point out any
important spot where I should look at? The files are being moved with
FeatureMoveData and my code execute the Do ( SELFREGISTRATIONPROCESS ). Any
idea?

The files were imported cleanly, and all of them has the Self-register
check. I did not modify the content of the Registry Data of any of the
components. Also, none of them has the Key set (I tested it setting it to a
dll and also was not registered) and there are multiple dll per component.

I also use FeatureMoveData with no media name specified to reset
FeatureMoveData content... any problem with that?

I already know that I can make components with the component wizards, but
there are more than 100 files, if I can save time it would be great.

Thanks.

Jonatan T. Allik:

In Developer 7, you can only call FeatureMoveData once. The fact that you
are calling it once to reset the content, then again to transfer the data
may be what is causing the problem. Try removing the multiple calls to this
function.

Hope this helps,
Mike Marino
