Hello
I created a setup project (msi)

That works fine. But now I want to add a SQLite Database File to my setup project.

How to do that ?

Thanks Andreas

Hi Andreas,

You can use File System Editor to add files to your setup project.

Hi Dmitry,

must I add the file to my project or to the Setup project ?

I Create the Setup Project from Contextmenu

AddinExpress -> Create Setup Project (Wix)

I have no idea where I can add files ?

Thanks Andreas

Hi Andreas,

Yes, you need to add the file (SQLite database file) to your setup project. Since you are using WiX, you can open the Product.wxs source file and modify its contents manually. Please have a look at the following links, they will help you to learn the WiX XML schema:
Directory element
Component element
File element

As an alternative, you can try our Designer for WiX Toolset product.
