Wix Hide License Agreement

Instead of providing an option to skip the license agreement, the stock game can be supplemented by no version of Eula. The Wix_MinimalNoUla.wxs is a modified version of WixUI_Minimal.wxs as an example. As a Wix UI Amateur, I post it here in case anyone else finds this useful. You can also specify the contract text directly here in the source file, but the previous solution seems much easier to wait for: WixUIExtension.dll contains a default license agreement. To specify your product`s license, crush the default setting by specifying a WiX variable called WixUILicenseRtf with the value of an RTF file containing your license text. You can set the variable in your WiX creation tool: This links the Next button in the home dialog box to the installation dialog box (or the dialog box after the license dialog box) and the Return button in the installation dialog box to the home dialog box – effectively remove the license dialog box. stackoverflow.com/questions/16978501/how-to-create-a-bootstrapper-application-without-a-license-agreement-step The WixUI Dialogue Library contains standard bitmaps for the context of welcome and closing dialogues and the top banner of other dialog boxes. You can replace these bitmaps with their own product brand purposes. To replace standard bitmaps, specify WiX variable values with the file names of your bitmaps, just like when replacing the default license text. There is a well-known problem with rich text control, which is used to display the text of the license file, which can result in the text being displayed empty until the user scrolls down into the control. This is usually caused by complex RTF content (z.B the RTF generated when recording an RTF file in Microsoft Word).

If you have this behavior in your installation user interface, it is corrected in most cases by one of the following bypasses: I recently came across a Wix project that mimics the WIX XML files, but allows you to code the C-configuration. You can find this project on wixsharp.codeplex.com. At first, I had the same problem with a license file with the “Terms and Conditions” that must be accepted before the user can install the software. As the solution was not such that the “general conditions” had to be accepted, I had to find a way to suppress that dialogue. Finally, the well-known nuisance: the Next button remains disabled until the user has given consent to the license agreement. We`ve already used condition tags at the higher level (start-up conditions to determine if the full installation process should be run) or in feature tags (to disable the installation of different features under certain conditions). This is their third use, in control tags. With their Action attribute, you can disable, turn on, hide or display the control or reset it in the default state if the condition in the tag is considered true: this simplification of the above XML code (www.howdoicode.net/2011/09/wix-how-to-hide-license-agreement.html) worked for me. This effectively skips the license instead of clinging to a custom page that I use with Wix 3.6 to create a simple MSI that is used internally. I would like to know if there is a simple way to remove the dialogue on licensing agreements. Ask for an option to skip the license agreement in WixUIExtension.

I found another option – stackoverflow.com/questions/597025/how-to-build-a-minimal-wix-installer-ui-without-a-license-page But is not able to integrate into your model [WixSetup]. Can you help me? Here is a good link with code: www.howdoicode.net/2011/09/wix-how-to-hide-license-agreement.html The text of the license agreement comes next.
