TryMeUseMergeModule.MM

This is one of the MAKEMSI samples which build a new MSI/MSM. This MSI makes use of these "TryMe.MM" files:

  1. TryMe.ver
  2. TryMe.rtf

The following code uses the merge module created by the "TryMeCreateMergeModule.MM" sample:

;        $Author:   USER "Dennis"  $
;      $Revision:   1.0  $
;          $Date:   29 Nov 2006 18:31:54  $

;
; DESCRIPTION
; ~~~~~~~~~~~
; This is a simple sample/test MSI that loads the merge module created by
; another sample ("TryMeCreateMergeModule.mm").
;
; The only 2 required lines in this file are:
;     1. #include "ME.MMH"
;     2. <$MergeModule ...
;----------------------------------------------------------------------------


;--- First lets check that you have built the merge module! -----------------
#define GeneratedMergeModule       ..\Create Merge Modules\out\TryMeCreateMergeModule.mm\MSM\TryMeCreateMergeModule.msm
#if FileQueryExists('<$GeneratedMergeModule>') = ''
    #error ^Sorry but you must build the "TryMeCreateMergeModule" sample first!^
#endif


;--- Include MAKEMSI support (with my customisations and MSI branding) ------
#define VER_FILENAME.VER  TryMe.Ver      ;;I only want one VER file for all samples! (this line not actually required in "tryme.mm")
#include "ME.MMH"

;--- Use the merge module we have previously generated ----------------------
<$MergeModule '<$GeneratedMergeModule>' language="1033">
