Overview
WINDEV includes a wizard for generating a setup program:
  • to install a WINDEV application.
  • to install other files. Installing goodies for example (images, videos, ...).
Installing a WINDEV application
The wizard for creating the setup program allows you to create the setup program of a WINDEV application. By default, if the wizard does not ask for the name of the application to install, the application to install corresponds to the project opened in WINDEV.
If the wizard asks for the name of the application to install, all you have to do is specify the project (".WPP" file) to install.
The home directory of the selected application is automatically retrieved by the wizard. This directory corresponds to the "EXE" directory of the project to install. By default, all the files found in this directory except for the data files (".FIC", ".NDX" and ".MMO") will be selected.
Installing other files
The wizard for creating the setup program (started from WDINST, the setup editor) gives you the ability to create a setup program associated with no application. This option allows you to provide new video files or new image files to the users for example (in a setup independent of the setup of the main application).
To generate a setup program associated with no application:
  1. In WINDEV, close the current project ("File .. Close the project").In WINDEV, close the current project: on the "Home" pane, in the "General" group, expand "Close" and select "Close the project".
  2. Open the setup editor WDINST ("Tools .. WDINST - Setup editor").Open the setup editor WDINST: on the "Tools" pane, in the "Utilities" group, click "WDInst".
  3. Select "File .. New".
  4. Don't specify any project (".WDP" file).
  5. Click the "Advanced" button.
  6. Select the home directory.
    This directory is used to define the structure of the directories to create on the user computers.
    For example, if the home directory is "C:\MyFiles" and if the files to install are found in the "C:\MyFiles\MyImages\BackgroundImage" directory, these files will be installed in the "MyImages\BackgroundImages" sub-directory of the setup directory by default.
  7. Select the files to install in the rest of the wizard.
