installer project with Bing Maps 3D

Feb 3, 2011 at 10:03 PM

Hi All,

I want to create an installer for my WPF application which is using these libraries for mapping. How can I include Bing Maps 3D as a prerequisite in the installer project? Im just using the standard "setup project" form the VS2010 project templates.

Cheers,

Mark

You'll need to create a setup bootstrapper for the Bing Maps 3D setup file. Check here for starting points:

It's a bit tricky because the tools have not been updated for Visual Studio 2010. I found I had to edit the generated XML manually and move things around. I've only needed to do this once (for ClickOnce) so I don't have more details on making it work, sorry.
