Hi Experts!

Thanks for reading this.

Using setup and deployment to create an msi and based on the response from the User Interface (RadioButtons):

user interface in setup and deploymentWe'll use the button selected to determine the Region.
In the Installer class in the Commit method it will edit the config file for TimeToSleep depending on the Region selected (RadioButton):
<Security.Permissions.SecurityPermission(Security.Permissions.SecurityAction.Demand)>
Public Overrides Sub Commit(ByVal savedState As IDictionary)

    Try
        MyBase.Commit(savedState)
        If MyBase.Context.Parameters("Region").ToString() = "1" Then
            My.Settings.Item("TimeToSleep") = "1000"          
        ElseIf MyBase.Context.Parameters("Region").ToString() = "2" Then
            My.Settings.Item("TimeToSleep") = "100"        
        ElseIf MyBase.Context.Parameters("Region").ToString() = "3" Then
            My.Settings.Item("TimeToSleep") = "10"        
        End If

    Catch exc As Exception
        MsgBox("Error performing commit tasks - " & exc.ToString(), "AppName Setup")
    End Try

End Sub 'Commit

Open in new window

Can you please help convert the above to C# (tried using VB.NET -> C# converter didn't help). This is what we have so far:
public override void Commit(IDictionary savedState)
{
    base.Commit(savedState);
}

Open in new window


TIA!!

Translated code:
        public  override void Commit(IDictionary savedState)
        {
            try
            {
                base.Commit(savedState);
                string myRegion = base.Context.Parameters["Region"].ToString();
                if (myRegion == "1")
                    Properties.Settings.Default.TimeToSleep = "1000";
                else if (myRegion == "2")
                    Properties.Settings.Default.TimeToSleep = "100";
                else if (myRegion == "3")
                    Properties.Settings.Default.TimeToSleep = "10";
            }
            catch (Exception exc)
            {
                MessageBox.Show("Error performing commit tasks - " + exc.ToString(), "AppName Setup");
            }
        }
