Move serverconfig.ini configuration out of wix include file

Reported by: jng Owned by:
Priority: low Milestone: 2.1
Component: General Version:
Severity: trivial Keywords: installer wix
Cc: External ID:

Description

The current wix installer uses the default serverconfig.ini

However the installer does not change the paths in that file during installation to match the paths defined in the installer.

Attached is a patch that will write the correct paths to serverconfig.ini during installation.

This requires that the default serverconfig.ini is replaced with one that has all the paths removed (also attached)

Jackie,

The current installer include files for the bin directory included a section that configured the serverconfig.ini file. I'm guessing that when you regenerated the file include this got blown away?

mapguide/browser/trunk/Installer/Libraries/MapGuide%20Server/FileIncludes/incBinFiles.wxs

Could you please make sure that your patch duplicates this functionality? It would likely to be best to pull this out into a separate area so that this doesn't get walked on every time the include files are regenned.

Summary: Wix Installer does not configure serverconfig.iniMove serverconfig.ini configuration out of wix include file

Hmmm, I saw the paraffin batch files and assumed these files were disposable (since the batch files will overwrite them), so I never looked at the file that was gonna get trashed :-)

Yes this patch is essentially a relocation of that functionality into a non-volatile area. Having seen the original file now, I'll put up another patch. One that doesn't scatter these IniFile? elements all over the place.

Summary changed to reflect the true issue.
