TryMeWindowsHotFix.MM

This example demonstrates the "Windows Hot Fixes" framework and is one of the MAKEMSI samples which build a new MSI/MSM.

To build the MSI you need download the "KB872942" hotfix EXE into the same directory as the ".mm" script.

This sample uses its own ".ver" file unlike many of the other "TryMe" samples and it is a common one you'd use for all similar packages), the full script:

;
;        $Author:   USER "Dennis"  $
;      $Revision:   1.3  $
;          $Date:   21 Dec 2006 17:54:02  $
;       $Logfile:   C:/DBAREIS/Projects.PVCS/Win32/MakeMsi/TryMeWindowsHotFix.mm.pvcs  $
;
;  For this example I decided to create a common ".MMH" and ".VER" file so
;  in "real life", there would only be the ".mm" and ".exe" in the source
;  directory and each hotfix (product) would just have a different guid
;  assigned in the script (note it would be possible to also have MAKEMSI
; automatically do a once off assignment).
;----------------------------------------------------------------------------

;--- For the purposes of this example I put "common files" elsewhere, normally you'd set this up globally (not in script) ---
#evaluate ^^ ^call IncludePath 'COMMON FILES'^          ;;Example only, this is not the correct place for this code...


;--- Specify upgrade code and generate HOTFIX package -----------------------
#define  HotFix4WinXpSp2_UpgradeCode    {58418121-FB16-4C99-AB64-410343E20C2F}
#include "HotFix4WinXpSp2.MMH"
;#include "HOTFIX.MMH"                  ;;We won't call directly but via WINXP SP2 config file...

Common Header: "HotFix4WinXpSp2.mmh"

This personal MAKEMSI configuration file would normally be stored once somewhere on your computer and certainly not be in the same directory as the script using it (or duplicated for each project)...
