Installshield LE dependencies issue

Hello,

I have created in VS 2012 an Installshield LE project for a WinForms application. I have added to the installer the primary output + dependencies of the WinForms application and everything worked correctly. Once I add to the installer the content files of the WinForms app, one of the dependencies is not copied to the root of the installation directory anymore.
I believe the issue might be related to the fact that some of the dependencies have the same name as some of the content files (some DLL libraries that are placed in the installation directory, in a separate folder).

Is there any way to fix this issue?

Thanks,
Andreea

Manually adding dependencies

Hello,

To find dependent files of content files, Please follow below steps:

1>Scan for dependencies - right click on content files, select Dependencies from scan at build
2>You will see the dependencies you will have to manually add, indicated by a red icon
3>Uncheck them, so you could get rid of the 6248 warning.
4>Then manually add the dependencies you identified above to the required folder...

Hope this helps

Re: Installshield LE dependencies issue

Hello Chiranjeevi,

Thanks for your reply.

Just want to make sure I understand correctly "manually add the dependencies".
Do you mean "Project Assistant -> Application Files -> Add files"?

The inconvenient here is that the path on disk for the added file is hardcoded, it is not related to the project location.

Please let me know if I am wrong.

Thanks,
Andreea
