Provisioning XML


Paula Schezcui

Hi, i´ve my CAB project that is part of my app solution, but i´d like to add
and provisioning xml when i compile the entire solution.
I saw in the web, but all examples do it manually, with the command line
cabwiz.exe. Are there any way to do it automatically, it means, provisioning
xml file when i compile my solution or project ?

My solution is WM5, CF 2.0 C#.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Chris for your reply....but under the CAB project ( in properties ) i
can´t find an option to run anything on post-build

Where do you say that i need to code that ?



I think your best bet is to create a setup dll and then call your command via
the Create Process method in the Install_Exit method. You can find examples
of setup dll on the internte.

Maybe I am overlooking this, but can't you just add your _setup.xml to your
CAB project defined in VS?

I think the wize array of responses means that the question just isn't
clear. Can you tell us again, in more detail, what you're trying to do?
