Deployment Package- SETUP.EXE

Postby leulae » June 2nd, 2017, 9:30 pm

Dear All,

Is there a way to create one package (like Setup.exe) to distribute the CSPro DATA ENTRY application together with CSPro. When run setup.exe it should install both CSPro data entry component as well developed data entry application (PEN+PFF). Finally it should add short cut to desktop.


Please guide me

Thanks in advance

There isn't anything like that built into CSPro. We use the free product NSIS (https://sourceforge.net/projects/nsis/) to create the CSPro installer. You could probably build something using that. There is a lot of information on NSIS available online.

Hi Josh,
It's a very interesting idea to install Csentry with user designed application, this with shortcut to desktop and program file.
I've already installed NSIS, but i would like to know:
a) Can we create installer for Csentry exe and associated dll, files so do user created application?
b) If a) is YES, can we have a list of all associated files (dll and other exe) for Csentry installation?

Thanks in advance,

For the CSPro installation, all the dlls are installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\CSPro 7.0. I would include all the dlls in that directory and just leave the exe files that you don't want.
