Visual Studio 2010, Setup and Deployement. Service installer primary output is not visible in custom action editor.
Posted on 2012-09-08
I have compiled a VC++ service installer, this installs a windows service. On the project its configuration is set to Active(Debug), I'm able to view its Primary Output (Service1) to add it as part of the Custom Action Editor under Setup and Deplyment project.
If I changed the Service1 project to Active(Release) I cannot longer view its Primary Output (Service1) under the Add Custom Action. But yet I'm able to Add --> Project Output the Primary Output (Service1).
why I cannot view Primary output from Service1 in Release mode under Add Custom Action..
Note: i have other projects that are C# programs and one VC++ program to handle windows service.
