Some parts of our application are very customer/user specific. The msi copies certain files that reside in the same folder to the desired folders on the target machine.
An example installation package could look like this. It is important the the msi and the other files reside in the same folder!
FOLDER_WITH_USER_SPECIFIC_FILES (These files change per customer, impossible to compile them into the msi)
As the application has various prerequisites (.NET framework, crystal reports...)
we use dotNetInstaller as bootstrapper. When the dotNetInstaller-bootstrapper is triggered, the msi gets copied a temp folder and as a consequence, the msi and the installation-specific files no longer reside in the same folder. ( Having a guess,
I believe the SourceDir points then to the wrong directory and the the user specific files cannot be copied)
Is there a solution to the problem? The goal is to have the following structure on the CD that is distributed to the customer:
FOLDER_WITH_USER_SPECIFIC_FILES (These files change per customer, impossible to compile them into the msi, or Bootstrapper)
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
