See more: C#2.0 installer setup
Hi experts,
 
I'm creating a setup project for a windows forms application. There is a directory whose access permissions have to get changed during the setup. I have C# code to do that[^] programmatically.
 
Running that code during setup seems to point right at custom actions.
 
This article[^] contains a chapter "C++ custom action DLL", which I personally would like very much, If it was possible to use C# code instead of C++.
 
Is it possible to translate UINT __stdcall MethodName(MSIHANDLE hInstall) and MsiGetPropertyW() to C# equivalents?
 
If so, how?

I once wrote a blog entry about VS setup porjects and custom actions using C#. Its here:

For the second part, I am not exactly sure at this point, but could look up later and update this answer.
 
Sorry if it does not meet your needs.
