Hi,

I would like to add EULA into my MSI installer (VS 2008 deployment project). It will only continue if the user agree and cancel the installation while the user disagree. May I know how can I do that?

Full sample will be really appreciated. Thanks.

sorry i don't have a full sample but you need to create a rich text file (.rtf) with your agreement in it, then you can add the eula step into the the deployment project and select your eula.


from http://www.tech-archive.net/Archive/DotNet/microsoft.public.dotnet.languages.csharp/2007-06/msg01174.html 

When you are working on your setup project, look in the View menu for the "Editors" item. That's got a pop-up that shows a variety of editors. You want the "User Interface" editor. Once there, you can add a variety of dialogs to the "User" and "Adminsitrative" setup options, including one that displays a EULA and requires the user to accept it before proceeding.

Personally, I think the whole EULA stuff is silly, especially when you look at the kinds of things they require in some cases and how few people actually consent to them in an informed way. I just put a blurb in my help topics, and make it nice and simple. But if you want a EULA for your program that the user has to consent to, the above is one way to do it.

As far as standard word goes, I suppose that depends. There are a variety of versions of the GNU license you could use, and of course you could look at existing shareware/freeware licenses. But IMHO the simpler the better, and if it's simple enough then you can probably just write it yourself.
