Has anyone got a recommendation for a Windows installer?
Using VS2015 to write a small test programme for one of my systems I need to send the end client an installer that will install all dependencies for this as well as the software. The software is not for sale and just for testing of the NETMF system I’ve developed for him. In fact, it it useless outside of the test setup.
I already tried to send the EXE but it crashes with an exception that indicates something is missing but we can’t figure out what it is.
I ended using inno setup - bit of a learning curve but it did want I want just put binaries on to the machine, none of this msi bollocks.
One thing if you use zip (my favourite) make sure the user clicks the properties to remove the alternate file stream entries for internet download otherwise weird things can happen.
btw visual studio has release a update for the missing setup project [url]Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 Installer Projects - Visual Studio Marketplace
