LinkMultiDlls in build

Hi,

 

I'm using <LinkMultiDlls> set to true in the project definition for a Visual COBOL 2.1 project and I would like to create an installer to include all the DLL's for that project. Now this would appear to not be possible as the installer project (be it WIX, Installshield LE or a VS2010 .vdprof project) assume that the project build output has name ProjectName.dll and won't look for the multiple DLL's... I'm still researching MSBUILD but does any ideas on this? I know that I can specify each individual file manually from the project in the setup project, but if I add a new source file to the project and forget to add the associated DLL to the setup project it won't be included.

 

Thanks,

Michael

RE: LinkMultiDlls in build

Hi Michael,

Which installer tech are you using?

Installshield and WiX can both perform dynamic harvesting of specified output folders.
