Hi, this is probably a silly question but I can't find the answer now that ISWI is a deceased product.

We currently have ISWI 2.03 in house and I can't work out if it will work for my new installation project which is to install a .net application as a service.

Does anyone have any experience in this?  What tools work with .net installation programs?

Any advice is useful.

B regards,

Stefan Krueger

To install :NET application I believe you have to use tables that have been introduced with MSI 2.0. ISWI can install the MSI 2.0 runtime, but it doesn't support the additional tables, so you would have to use Orca or something similar to populate the Assemblies table.

ISWI will not automatically install the .NET runtime so you would have to do that yourself, too.

I'm not saying it's impossible, but there's no built in support for .NET. This was added in InstalLShield Developer, so you may want to upgrade. (which is currently available at a special price)
