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?
