Inno Setup
« on: August 17, 2004, 10:50:56 AM »
I am trying to compile all of my tools into Inno Setup so I can distribute them more easily. My question is.....How do I test for AutoCAD profiles so I can add search paths to each when installing?

Thanks,

Ron

I may be wrong but doesn't Inno setup automatically pick up all the profiles on the target PC and prompt the user to select which profiles to add paths to ?
(you can also specify a completely new profile to use or copy from an existing one)

beware though, if you are adding lines to the Acaddoc.lsp, if one doesn't exist, Inno creates one in the first_support_path it finds ~ which is (one of)the one(s) you just added.

I would also (strongly) suggest downloading a copy of ISTOOL from http://www.istool.org ~ it makes working with Inno so much easier

You need AcadInstall from www.cadwerx.net You then use Inno to run acadinstall for all the acad profiles.

it's a piece of cake to setup, (pun intended) but if you run into trouble post a question in the vlisp forum.
