Setup Project in Visual Studio 2017 for Deployment. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am trying the Visual Studio 2017; I couldn't find the "Setup Project" to deploy any software created using Visual Studio 2017.

    Can someone guide me how to get it / where to find it?

    Thanks

  • Hi VKSBK,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    Please click->Tools->Extensions and Updates to download Microsoft Visual studio 2017 Installer Projects.

    After this, you could find it when you create a new project.


    Best regards,

  • I tried the Publish (Wix and OneClick??), under project properties, creates a nice setup.exe with supporting files, but no obvious way to package into an msi...

    This looks promising...

    You have to download the app as well

    http://www.advancedinstaller.com/

    It says free license is fully functional, but sure will run into a limitation...

    No InstallSHield LE for VS 2017 that I could find???

  • Forget about Advanced Installer, typical commercial stuff. Make you think its free, but its not really!

    This seems to be the ticket...

  • Is there any alternative for "Microsoft Visual studio 2017 Installer Projects" because 2017 version still has a severe bug "Unrecoverable Build Error" and doesn't work if SSDT installed on a PC (a setup project should not be empty).

    This blocks work with SSIS projects because you must to uninstall SSDT.

    This blocks build-servers.

  • Dera all, following what's suggested, the system is returning me that Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 Installer is ALREADY installed, but I cannot see it in the installed tools :-( 

    How can I do?
