Installing multiple instances of the same application


  • Hello


    I am trying to solve this problem:

    I worked in VS 2010. My project type is Setup project. My aim is create .msi package, so that it can be used multiple times at the same machine to install several instances of the same product. But at the computer can be installed only one instance with unique PRODUCT CODE, to install new instance imediately, without change of product code and rebuild od msi package, is impossible. My questions are:

    1. Is there any possibility to add some custom action which change PRODUCT CODE in Windows Installer DB during run of the installation?

    2. Is there any other possibility to do this?


    Thank you.
