Time for .NET 1.1
Posted 13 May 2003 - 13:16
after i read some stuff about this topic i'm rather upset that IS will not produce a .NET 1.1 object for version 7.
Does anyone know a save workaround how to use the new .NET version in a basic project?
Any help greatly appreciated!

For InstallShield Professional 7 (which is a completely different product line, and is discussed in a separate forum) there is a .NET Object, but only for version 1.0. The sources for this object are available so you could build a 1.1 version yourself.

Anyway i still have the problem. I use a launcher exe, but can't include the .NET 1.1 redist.
I tried to exchange the dotnetredist.exe of my 7.04 IS Dev. basic setup in the folder
but my setup doesn'work anymore now... after a while of launcher work it says, that
it cannot find 1033dotnetredist.exe, which is in the root of my cd setup.
BTW: Why is this now called 1033...exe ? It has never been that way before i tried
to play around with that topic?

I believe 1033 stands for English. Version 1.1 of the Framework is available in multiple languages.
I never tried to use it with Developer 7.x. You may need to create your own launcher (e.g. sue the one from the .NET SDK)
BTW: .NET 1.1 is officially supported in Developer 8...

yeah, 1033 is the English Language ID, but why does IS Dev now rename the EXE.
It is called dotnetredist.exe in the redist folder of IS... ???
Concerning IS 8:
I think it's thievish to not support NET 1.1 in version 7. Considering the update
cost of version 8 and the problems i've read about getting version 7 setups
running, i think it's not worth it now.
