Setup Project Bootstrap questions/issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear experts,

    I hope this is the right place for my question if not please let me know.

    I’m creating a setup with the visual studio setup project all works but there is one small problem the auto detected dependencies are not all there so in need to include a custom prerequisite.

    The custom prerequisite has to install two elements of the sql server feature pack http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=ceb4346f-657f-4d28-83f5-aae0c5c83d52&displaylang=en


    -SharedManagementObjects.msi (to install this the SQLSysClrTypes.msi is a prerequisite)

    I found how to make a custom bootstrap but how can I determine the following

    -          The download url so both will be downloaded like de dotnet fx

    -          How can I determine the  values for the xml like

    -          <Name>

    -          <HomeSite>

    -          <PublicKey>

    -          < EstimatedInstalledBytes >

    -          < EstimatedInstallSeconds >

    -          < EstimatedTempBytes >

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Kind Regards,
