Hi
I am programming in C#2015 a software utility that is installed with the help of Designer for Wix Installer. I have now added to my project a small windows service.

How can i get the designer to create an installer that installs the winforms application and at the same time the service. How can i get this registration of the service?

Is this done with custom scripts feature?

Do you have an example how to program this?

Hello Christian,

Please check instructions at https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/zt39148a(v=vs.100).aspx. Start with the header "To create the installers for your service" and follow it and all headers below. you may need to slightly adapt the instructions to using the WiX Designer (the article describes using the Visual Studio Installer).

Hope this helps. If it isn't please let me know and I'll try to help.
