creating a modified installer for the scol voyager

I'd like to create a modifed installer for the scol voyager, one that simply adds the installation of an additional directory with some files in the \Partition_LockedApp\tools directory.  I've never done this, so I welcome any pointers to figure out even where to begin doing this...i.e. tutorials for using visual studio express to do this.

Once I do know how to make an installer, how would I obtain the necessary source from redmine (I've done this with ogre using TortoiseHg).

thx for your input.

Re: creating a modified installer for the scol voyager

Scol use SVN so you'll have to use tortoise SVN go get the sources.

For setups we use Inno setup, no need of visual studio for this.
there templates in the souces.

I don't think you need to make a special scol voyager setup.
what would you add in it ?

Thx! I will look into the basics of using these.

I'd like to package everything in one installer. I don't think I can sell the app on the windows store with a nested/concurrent installation. They appear to want the installation package to be a single step process.

Re: creating a modified installer for the scol voyager

After looking into things further, going ahead and customizing the scol voyager setup is way beyond my knowledge. I'll just use inno to install the .pkg files I modified along with writing a shortcut to the user's appdata>roaming>microsoft>windows>start menu folder. That will make my project appear on the apps screen on 8.1. A bit better than the gulag of the desktop. From the app screen, a user can pin the shortcut to the coveted start screen. At least that is my plan. for now, knowing what I know, which isn't much at this point.

Getting the app onto the windows store is another step above writing a custom installer, I believe that the whole installation architecture is different and microsoft must approve the app as meeting its criteria.

Re: creating a modified installer for the scol voyager

I don't know if there is a special install process for metro applications, have to look at this some days.

in the scol voyager setup.iss you just have to add your own files.
