How to create AddOn ard File?

Hi Experts,

I am creating ard file using following process.

1. create New project.

2. select Visual Basic from installed templates.

3. Choose "SAP B1 AddOnInstaller .NET Wizard" from list.

4. Insert Application Name.

5. Insert Version (Ex. 1.0)

6. Estimated Installation Time = 180

7. Estimate Uninstallation Time = 180 and click on Next

8. Add Application .exe File. From obj\x86\Debug where your project is save. then it automatically takes needed DLL files.

ex. D:\MyProjectSolution\obj\x86\Debug\MyProjectSolution.exe

9. Click on the Add Files for Adding Other required XML Files

10. After adding Files Click on Finish button. It is a last step of creating ARD File

11. Go to path where you have create the project (in step 1).

12. Go to the Bin folder in the same project. In that .ard file will be created

using this process ard File created success fully but i get irritate while adding XML Files (SRF Files and Menu File). because in my Add On there are 60 XML Files and every time i need to add that while creating ard.

Is there any other way to add files to the ard?

-Regards

Vikas

    Hi Vikas,

    you can also embed your xml resources in your addon exe.

    this way you dont need to add all the xml files in the installer.

    see this post for more info :

    Hi Vikas,

    You can select multiple files in one go using the Wizard. Just select all the files pressing CTRL + A in the folder where you keep your xml files.

    Hi, if you want to add your XML, just click the Add files and follow this image.

    If your XML are in different folder, then just click Add files then repeat the above image.
