Redistributing the Console


#1

Hello,

We’re using SmartInspect (Professional) for our logging in our program and are now building the installer for it.

In the forums I found this thread: http://forum.gurock.com/topic/119/redist-install/

It says that we don’t have to use the redistributable executable and only need to include the following four files from the redistributable install as part of our install:

DefaultDocking.dat
License.rtf
Deploy.txt
SmartInspectConsole.exe
SmartInspect.chm

This was posted back in 2007, is this still valid? Can I still redistribute the redistributable console this way instead of the entire install? I would much rather have the icons and shortcuts under my program, which would make more sense to our users.

Thanks!

Sheri

Hi Sheri,

Thanks for your posting. Yes, the description is still valid and you can deploy the Redistributable Console by just copying the above files together with your own application in your own setup or deployment tool.

I hope this helps.

Regards,
Dennis
