Having trouble getting a visual studio installer project (vdproj) converted over to install shield.
Using a custom action.
In Visual Studio, we have a custom user interface that tunes the "RadioButtons (4 buttons)" to prompt for an installation environment type.
It allows 1 of 4 (PROD, QA, UAT, DEV) values to be selected, and stores the Button property as ENVBUTTON.
It then uses a Custom Action that points to primary output from another item in the solution giving:
Source "reference to the exe produced by the another item in the solution.
The installer creates a special form of the shortcut taking the value of ENVBUTTON.
I have managed to get the dialog setup in Install Shield. Just like the VDPROJ file, it has a radio button group that sets the ENVBUTTON value.
Each radio button has a property value exactly the same as the above. When I run the install shield project, I see the dialog appear and can select an button in the radio group.
So how do I:
(1) Set the property value of ENVBUTTON to the value of the radio button selected inside it;
(2) Link the dialog to a custom action, so that at the point of the installation, the Installer class is called with the value of the ENVBUTTON property passed as an argument.
I have found parts of the solution on this wonderful forum, but cannot seem to figure out the last steps above.
Any help would be greatly appreicated.
