Showing a progress bar while msi is downloaded
Posted 02 June 2007 - 20:00
Just getting into this part of software lifecycle. It is definitely its own beast.
I have become very familiar with creating setup projects via Visual studio to create setup.exe and .msi files for deployment.
When clients download our software via the web over slow connections its seems to take the .msi file a while to download. While the download is occuring, there is no progress bar/status screen indicating this is happening which fustrates customers.
All I need is to incorporate a progress screen in project. Meddled with Orca and it seems it should not be as hard as i am making it out to be.

Well, I use InstallShield but there are probably other downloaders/launcher out there that you can try. However I'm not particularly familiar with all of them.
