Using WiX to install the service is simple. It takes just a few words to get there. After we create the good one Windows service. We create a file in the project Service.wxs to install the service, and edit the code as follows:Wix xmlns="Http://schemas.microsoft.com/wix/2006/wi"> Fragment> Component Id= "productc" Guid=" De8dd064-c440-4e82-80d7-d05c98753daf " Directory=" PRODUCTC "> file Id = "

TheProgramThe location of the set is different from the runtime location of the Assembly, especially in the Global Assembly Cache (GAC) Assembly, which needs to be handled when the winodws installer is created through Wix.
The position of the Assembly displayed in the Add reference window during vs design is from registry SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \. netframework \ assemblyfolders-put it under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE for all users, or put it under HKEY_CURREN
Visual Studio 2012 removes "vs setup" and replaces it with the open-source Wix toolkit to create the installation package. Recently released wix3.6 includes Burn BootProgram/Installation chain, which means that you can not only create installation packages such as the MSI file, but also combine multiple installation packages (such as installation preparation) to provide users with a smoother installation experience. The newly released

We can use Wix to make a very beautiful Installation File. For example, the famous sharpdevelop is the installation file used for it. It was downloaded yesterday and tried it for a while,I feel very good. I personally think it is clearer than the installation file provided by vs (maybe I won't make it myself), but the MSI files generated by sharpdevelop are all in English.If you add Chinese characters to WXS, the generated Installation File becomes ga
When an application is running, it will inevitably read and write files and generate new data. However, files under program files cannot be changed at will. Files under win7 will be rejected if they do not have permissions. I have two methods: one is to move the data path to the program data directory, and the other is to grant permissions to the file.
Of course, your application path must support this method.
