  • Call Powershell script

    Hi,
    I whould like to call ps1 script to perform number of setting
    (like check if ActiveDirectory module installed and if not - install it).

    What is the best way to do it (taking in account the need of getting the error back) ?

    Thanks

      There is no built-in support specific for calling Powershell scripts in MSI Factory (or WiX). Using Google, I have found a developer who is offering a custom WiX extension, which you may be able to use. There are also some samples for calling Powershell scripts from a MSI. You will have to do some further research if you want to use this.

        Powershell extension

        But if I will edit the WIX the next build from MSI Factory will overwrite it.
        So how can I leverage the Powershell extension?

        Thanks

          If you want to use the extension, I believe you would use a WiX fragment (or more), and insert it/them into the WiX source created by MSI Factory during the build process. In other words, this code would be merged with the current WiX source created from the project.
