Exchange feature via msi-install package
« on: June 17, 2014, 08:41:00 AM »
Hello!
I want to get a msi-installation of my application, but I didnīt find how I can do this. Have somebody practice with them. I was playing little with "Advanced installer" to create a msi, but it doesnīt looks like the plugins I have installed in C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins

If you submit the app to the exchange store - they will make an MSI for you if there is no curve ball problems. See the quote below, along with my other informative links for creating Autoloader bundles and submitting to the Exchange Store

Note from above URL:
Quote
"We strongly recommend you make use of the standard Exchange store app installer we create for you. However, if you don’t use our standard installer template, or if your installer or product requires elevated user privileges (greater than a Windows 7 Standard User) to install, then this must be very clearly documented in the description of your product displayed on the Store. Autodesk may reject your app if it is not compatible with our standard installer template."

NSIS is cool (I like it) but it wont build a MSI though.

Thanks for replay. But itīs not answer of my question. I have no problem with a msi- or exe- setup package. My Problem is I would like have the same structure in the msi as the plugins from AutodeskExchange. In the end it should install my Application in rigth path and integrate in Autocad, like so you can do it with AutodeskExchangePlugin.

I found this site too with the picture "Create Development" but I donīt know to bcome have this setup wizard. In my company I installed Acad once. How can I get the setup again?!
