Question about CSLA Installer

Question about CSLA Installer

Jav posted on Saturday, July 14, 2012

I have been "installing" newer versions of Csla the old fashioned way, unzipping and copying the folders to the appropriate places.  I would like to use the Installer but I cannot find any writeup about it in the Rocky blogs (all the way to Jan, 2010) or in this forum.  Since I have three different products based on three different versions of Csla, I am afraid to use the installer lest it messes up the older versions.

Can someone please refer me to some information about the use of the Installer and where it does install the Csla?

The installer puts the files in

c:\program files {x86)\Marimer LLC\Csla\<version>

So it shouldn't mess up older versions, because I doubt you'd create a folder structure like that one :)

The current installer also puts the source and samples into zip files in that folder, along with binaries to support Silverlight 4 in a zip file.

The 4.5 installer is a little different, because Microsoft dropped the setup project type in VS12. But it basically does the same thing, and into the same folder structure.
