Hi all,

I am facing some problems while deploying some file after installation.
I am making Setup with my software. In this setup there is an X .exe file(other than mines) that should run as a service. So far the service is registered but not running because it needs vcredist_x86, which installs runtime components of Visual C++ Libraries required to run applications developed with Visual C++, before it is registered.

How can i do that before my setup starts the service?
I was told a merge module (like c++ runtime environment ) would solve my problem!!! I tried to add these modules to the related file but it did not work. Do i need to do something further with these modules?
What can such merge module do? (I don't have a clear idea about Merge modules and how can they be used?)


Thanks in advance!!
Best Regards

Perhaps it might be an idea to research that aspect first?

It sounds to me like you're not building an MSI but an EXE (containing WiseScript per chance?), in which case merge modules are of no use to you. So, is it an MSI you want to build or a Setup.EXE?

Thanks for your reply
Yes I am building an exe(valid for files inside MSI) but it does not contain Wisescript. and exe is my goal.
if merge modules are not usable in case of building an exe file, what can be done?

Forget building your EXE for now. Get the MSI installing properly, including the merge module. The subject of merge modules is too lengthy to go into here. As I suggested, do some research first.

BTW, for future reference, it is futile to have sentences like "I tried to add these modules to the related file but it did not work." in your posts. *WHAT* didn't work? Did the files get installed but not registered? If they didn't get installed, what diagnostics did you carry out? Did you log the install?

NB:
Do not answer these questions now, they're irrelevant. I'm offering you advice for the future.
