create an installer for a silverlight out of browser application


I did the following steps to create an installer for a silverlight out of browser application. Installer gets installed and no shortcut icon seen in desktop. Probably the script in custom action fails. when we use the script separately in a cmd file, the script works and icons are seen in desktop. Can you please check this

1. Open visual studio, click other project types, add installshield project. For the first time you need to

download it.

2. After adding installshield project, click project asssistant.

3. Enter application information with product name, installer name and company name

4. Click installation requirement and specify the details

5. Click application files. Here we need to add project output files. we can add primary output of

silverlight project here. Add primary output, xap, appmanifest.xaml and install script.

Click add project output button to add primary output file, click add files button to add xap file,

appmanifest.xaml and installvbsript.

6. Click on installation review. Specify the details there.

7. click on the custom actions. Specify the installation script for installing silverlight xap. Add a vbscript

file here and add installation script inside the vbscript.

Dim objShell

Set objShell = CreateObject( "WScript.Shell" )

objShell.Run("""C:/Program Files (x86)/Microsoft Silverlight/sllauncher.exe"" /

install:SilverlightApplicationDemo.xap /shortcut:desktop+startmenu /origin:

Private/XAP/SilverlightDistributionDemo.xap /overwrite ")

Set objShell = Nothing
