Bootstrapper and custom WPF UI

Jun 30, 2016 at 1:46 PM
I am struggling a bit with how to structure my solution and get to where I want to be. Here is what I have. 2 MSI projects that are built using WIX. They will install my 2 applications without any problems. I also have a custom WPF project that has all of my installation UI.

What I need to get to is a Bootstrapper project that pulls together those 2 things and will also check for and install a number of different items, .NET 4.5 framework, SQL Server SMO for 2012, etc.

Is there a way to do this with just adding a bootstrapper project to my solution? I am just a little uncertain given all of the templates available for Wix#.

Thank you

You can use WixBootstrapper_UI sample that builds a bootstrapper with WPF UI as a starting point (or a benchmark).

As for the VS template you would need to use "WixSharp Setup - Bootstrapper".

Excellent! Thank you for the help. The Wix# is an excellent interface.
