Microsoft Object Spaces
Installing Microsoft Object Spaces (Beta)
Gopalan Suresh Raj
work with any of these samples, you will need the
.........................................Microsoft .NET SDK
.........................................The objectspaces.msi package.
.........................................A copy of ORCA. The installer (orca.msi) is installed with the Platform SDK.
The installer (orca.msi) is installed with the Platform SDK. Presumably you only need to install the Windows Installer SDK.
|Once you get ORCA installed (it'll be in the Programs list without a containing group), use ORCA to open objectspaces.msi and perform the following three steps:|
|Click on the CustomAction table (on the left). The right-hand pane will show 6 entries, the topmost being SetRegasmPath. You should see that it thinks RegAsm lives in the <FrameworkDir>\v1.0.3328 subdirectory. Change that to v1.0.3705.|
|Click on the RegLocator table. The right-hand pane will show 5 entries, the topmost being NETFramework. You should see that it's looking for version information in SOFTWARE\Microsoft\.NETFramework\policy\v1.0 under the 3328 subkey. Change that 3328 to 3705.|
You should now be able to install the ObjectSpaces beta on VS.NET RTM.
|What is ORCA?|
ORCA is a Microsoft utility geared towards
modifying and validating windows installer packages. It is a database tool
created for setup Authors and Administrators that work with the windows
installer service. This utility is a part of the Windows Installer SDK
download along with other msi related tools.
You can use ORCA to open and modify msi packages and .ism project files.
To download and install ORCA, follow the steps below:
After installing ORCA on your machine, you
will be able to right click on any msi package and open it in ORCA. For
opening ism file, you may have to right click on the ism file and go to
"Open with" section to pick ORCA as the product to open with.
