Ticket #154 (closed defect: fixed)

WIX installer needs to be edited before it works on French OS.

Reported by: michaelhalloran Owned by: michaelhalloran
Priority: minor Milestone: 2.2
Component: Installation Version: 2.1
Keywords: Cc:


In order for the Wix installer to be rebuilt on a machine with a French OS, I need in Product.wxs to change “Common Files” to “Fichiers Communs” in the lines that define the ids of the merge modules. I need to do that because on a French OS the “Merge Modules” folder is under “C:
Program Files
Fichiers Communs” and there is no “C:
Program Files
Common Files” folder.

Wonder if, using some system variable, the contents of Product.wxs can be made independent of the name given to the folder holding the common files.

With commit 262 I was able to generate the release version of the WIX installer without any problem. Compared to the instructions sent on July 17, 2011 5:53 PM regarding how to perform generation of installer, I see a difference in the destination folder. I found the generated MSI under COLTT
COLTT 2.1.0
Release rather than under COLTTWIX
