Newbie Q - how to copy file

By Level 11 Flexeran
Level 11 Flexeran
I have a msi package that i would like to customise very easily all wish to do is add a pdf onto the cd and when the package runs it will copy the pdf file to the destination computer ; i tried through files and folders on adminstudio but keep getting error insert disk , if i run the package from the hard drive then it installs ok , if this error is not resolveable is there another way around this using a command line as part of the package or something , as i said i am new to this but would really appreciate some help if anyone can

Thank you for your question regarding AdminStudio.

It seems like the best move would be to use a custom action, and use some VB code to copy the PDF file, using DevStudio/Developer. Insert the custom action as early in the process as possible, and that should do it.

As a last resort, you could always create a second MSI just to copy that file for you and run it before your main install.

Anyway, let us know if you have any other questions.
