Hi, everybody,

Does any body know a sample or easy way to customize the bootstrapper feature in vs2005?

When I tried to ClickOnce deploy my win app, I saw two kind of prereq are needed: office and Crystal Report Engine to be installed in the GAC.

I think bootstrapper is the right tool to take care of these. All I found were Sean Draine MSDN article(http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/issues/04/10/Bootstrapper/), which is pretty good, but I would like to see more details samples or step-by-step.

And Davide Icardi's Code Project sample(http://www.codeproject.com/dotnet/dotNetInstaller.asp?print=true), which is for vs03, and was 3 years old. I am not sure it is still the most updated method of doing custom bootstrapper.
