Building a Windows installer for the BOINC client

On the build machine:

Build solution (Release/debug, 32/64 bit)

Make sure you have current dependent libraries.

  • on Win command line:
    cd boinc/win-build/
    buildenv.cmd type release platform x64
    updatesymstore
    (same for x86)
    deploysymstore (enter password)(stores are on isaac in boinc/doc/symstore)
    

In the Installshield VM:

  • open BOINC.ism
  • in Installation Design tab:
    • Product version: set
    • Product code: get new one (at right)
    • don't change Upgrade Code!
  • in Releases:
    • change filename
    • check box for WEBx86
    • Build / build batch
    • Same for BOINC_vbox.ism, etc.
  • installers end up in BOINC/WEBx86/Web/DiskImages/DISK1

Rom: need to do anything for Vbox versions? what determines the Vbox version?

Back on build machine:

  • put "customdict.txt" in boinc_depends_win_vs2010/developr/davea (??)

Updating VirtualBox in InstallShield?

You'll need to extract the various components from the VirtualBox installer via:

VirtualBox-4.3.20-96996-Win.exe --extract --path c:\temp\virtualbox43

Or whatever Vbox version you want.

Update the PRQ files using InstallShield?'s Prerequisite Editor.

Copy the extracted files and updated PRQ files to: C:\Program Files\InstallShield?\2011\SetupPrerequisites?
