link to "embedded file" in linkcontrol?

Feb 3, 2011 at 11:21 AM

HI,

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.
