link to "embedded file" in linkcontrol?

Feb 3, 2011 at 11:21 AM


I would like to use the linkcontrol to link to a resource that is in the dotnetinstaller.exe, same like done with the license control. I just do not need this checkbox. Background is that legal departments is not happy with a link the dotnetinstaller license on codeplex, but I must "bundle" the license together with the exe.

Any hint on how this can be achieved is welcome.

  1. Create a feature request
  2. ...
  3. Profit


This would be quite easy to implement (go for it) by copying the way license control works minus all the checkbox stuff. The license control is just a checkbox + a hyperlink to a locally extracted file.

yes, I thought that the license agreement would work like that. But since I need this for dni 1.10 and hopefully do not need it with v2 and htmlinstaller, I will do nothing about it. Just thought I may have missed a option on eihter control to do what I want.

No way to extract file before UI sequence starts to "#CabPath"? Then the "link" would be quite easy... if not I won't get around delivering the file outside the bootstrapper as a quick solution.

There's no way to extract a file before the UI sequence in 1.10, sorry.
