Configure Azure DevoOps (VSTS) build environment for your VS solution including an Advanced Installer setup project
This tutorial will guide to configure Azure DevOps (VSTS) build environment for your VS solution including an Advanced Installer setup project
- Open Azure DevOps, go to "Pipelines > Builds" and press “+ New” button and select "New Build Pipeline" to create a task.
- Select your repository (eg. Azure Repos Git)
- choose a template for your task or click on “Empty job” hyperlink to start from scratch
- In the Azure DevOps Marketplace search for the Advanced Installer extensions and install them.
If you need to build a Visual Studio solution containing an .AIP project you should use the Advanced Installer Tool Installer extension. This will ensure that a specified version of Advanced Installer is installed on the build environment when the task is executed.
From "Tasks" tab add the Advanced Installer Tool Installer by clicking on the + sign next to the “Agent Job”.
Drag and drop the “Use Advanced Installer” task above “Build solution” task.
Tool Installer needs to run first because the Build task requires a version of Advanced Installer installed on the hosted agent.
