Wix XNA Installer Template 1.0.0-beta1
Includes a template SharpDevelop WiX project for XNA games that can be configured to a) prevent installation when neccessary libraries aren't installed or b) install any missing libraries.
- Uses LZMA compression to reduce the size of the redistributables
- Install prevention on systems with missing components works flawlessly
- Automatic install of missing components gets any fresh XP or Vista system into a state where it can run XNA games. Usage of Back/Next-Buttons for detection page will attempt to install all components a second time.
- Does not yet display any progress indication while installing the system components (.NET, DirectX, XNA). Especially .NET takes a long time and might lead the user to believe that the installer hangs.
This is beta software. Use at your own risk.
