problem running the install project

Apr 4, 2012 at 8:21 AM


Following the instructions on the ''getting started'' guide i am at the point to run the database installer project.

I have correctly added the file ACME.MovieTest.Install.dll in the command line but when i go to -> Debug-StartNew Instance it 

starts the InstallUtil.exe and closes in a flash. It does not show the nhydrate dialog to install database. Any ideas whats the problem or where to look?

For some reason InstallUtil.exe is not calling the ACME.MovieTest.Install.dll. You should try to run it directly from a .net command prompt in the debug folder. In this way you will see the error message that InstallUtil displays prior to shutting down. If you still have problems, paste the error you get when running InstallUtil.exe to this post.

Need to update the ''getting started'' guide.

When I look in the Getting Started Guide I see no path like that defined. Was this in the document by that name in the 5.0 installation or somewhere else?

The installer project now emits as a 4.0 project. So of course the InstallUtil must be 4.0. This has been corrected. Thanks.
