Custom Actions

Mon Aug 06, 2018 2:14 pm

Hi there,
I know that to make a custom action you have to install WIX toolset and use the custom action project type to write your custom action and build your .CA.DLL file to call a function ,but I want to call functions from already made DLLs not by the custom action project type ,is that possible or do Advanced Installer allows you to only call functions from .CA.DLLs?
thanks,
Abdul.

Hello Abdul,

You are not limited to WiX custom action DLLS. You can call functions from any DLL as long as your DLL exports those functions. Just try to use our "Call function from attached native DLL" or "Call function from installed DLL" predefined action types to call your DLL functions.

If there is anything else we can help you with just let us know.

All the best,
Daniel
