Multiple installs on same target


I need the ability to install my application multiple times on the same server to integrate with multiple instances of the parent software my add-in is for. Currently my installation presents the user with a custom dialog so they can select the instance which drives the installation location.

What do I need to do to make the product unique in add remove programs? Just change the production name?

Create an InstallScript project

Installation Information >> General Information >> Maintenance Experience >> Multi-Instance

Try it.

You can use Installscript as morrischou mentions. It is very easy and flexible.
Also the following may be of some use:

Basic MSI can also be used for Multi-Instance. This is a very advanced topic and you should get into it only if you know Windows Installer Technology thoroughly.
