"Shared legacy" components

Post by icke_qps » Mon May 13, 2019 3:39 pm

I have been reading up on using "shared legacy" components, as mentioned in the help and some topics: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=10407&p=28060&hilit ... acy#p28060

So I already know that using the same MergeModule in 2 different installers will take care of the reference count and uninstalling.

We are still in transition of 'Visual studio deployment projects' and I would like to gradually move some projects.

Now I have this scenario:
- I have a Mergemodule compiled with AdvancedInstaller
- This merge module is used in an Installer built with Advanced Installer
- This merge module is used in another Installer built with Visual Studio

Does 'shared legacy' still work in that case?

Best regards,

Hi Peter,

Yes, the reference count for the components (shared legacy) should work regardless the installer authoring tool. Did you encounter any problems with this?
