.NET 4.7 and above - enable WCF \ http activation

Tue Oct 19, 2021 10:59 am

I am using Advanced Installer 12.7.2 for creating installers offline and in production.
Is it possibe to enable .NET 4.7 (And above) WCF \ Http Activation as a prerequisite during install?

I can see and have done this with earlier versions of Windows servers (and the tags are in the prerequisites area of AI).

Thanks,
Ian

Hello Ian,

Yes, that should be possible, especially if you found them in the "Prerequisites" page.

What you should do here is:

- go to "Prerequisites" page

- right click on "Windows Features" --> "New Windows Feature Bundle"

- select the target OS

- then check "HTTP Activation" from under "WCF Services"

Hi Caitlin,
I'm using Advanced Installer 12.7.2
What if the target OS doesn't appear in the Target Operating System section? (In this case it will be Windows server 2016 and Windows Serer 2019)
The request i was given was to enable WCF\Http Activation for Windows server 2019.

Many thanks,
Ian

Most likely, that version of Advanced Installer does not support that.

Please note that Advanced Installer version 12 was released in 2015. At that time, Windows Server 2019 did not even exist.

If you can not upgrade to a newer version (to take advantage of the predefined support), then perhaps you can achieve your request through a custom action.
