2004 Add-on Installer and .NET Setup Project

Has anyone successfully created a .NET Setup Project that works with the new Add-on Administrator?

As far as I know, the .NET Setup exe does not accept command line parameters, therefore I cannot get the Add-on install path and I get an error when B1 tries to run my installer.

I have an alternate solution but would like to check before abandoning the .NET Setup Project for installing.

    If you have installed the SDK, you should find a sample installer application in the following folder:

    C:\Program Files\SAP Manage\SAP Business One SDK\Samples\COM UI\VB.NET\14.AddOnInstaller

    I used this to get my installer working with the new Add-on Administrator - hopefully this will help... It is different from using a setup project, but fairly straight forward.

    For some issues that I am facing with getting my add-on to work search my thread "Registering Add-on in 2004"

    Hi Catherine

    I don't have a clue about real setup - Projects but maybe the following thread can help you:

    how to create a install.exe with vb.net/VS2003/SBO2004

    it helped me. As Frank said it's important to embed the ressources (+interop.SAPboui.Dll) and extract all of them then.
