Re: Can we use normal VS custom actions instead of WiX custom actions?

Hi Dan, Thanks for your reply. Is this the same for C# Custom Actions as well? Because I generated a DLL and then it did not show any of its function name under Advanced Installer custom actions section. Whether I am doing something wrong?

Re: How to pass Windows Installer properties to a WiX C# Custom action?

Hi Dan,

Thanks for your reply.

Looks like the documentation that you have mentioned explains about passing a single property as a parameter. I wanted to know if there is a way to pass multiple properties to a custom action.

Thanks

Can we use normal VS custom actions instead of WiX custom actions?

Hi,


Can we use normal custom actions compiled to a DLL using just Visual Studio (Walkthrough: Creating a Custom Action) instead of WiX custom action?

Is there a limitation or problem in doing this?


Thanks in advance.

How to get the details of deployment type (SCCM, GPO)?

Hi,

Is there a way to know how an end-user user installs a MSI? I mean its related to deployment methods like SCCM, GPO or any other deployment tool like Desktop Central, Citrix etc. I need this info for installation analytics.

Thanks in advance.
