Visual Studio 2017 (SharpSetup discontinued!)

Postby guttsy » Thu Aug 10, 2017 7:47 pm

Any idea when Visual Studio 2017 support (with C# 7) will be available? It's been out for a few months.

It is not likely it will be available. Development of SharpSetup stopped some months ago :-(

This is deeply worrying! :o :shock: :(

Our company has standardized on SharpSetup for installation of all our software products. May I ask why development has stopped? Do you know of any alternatives? Would it be possible to get some instructions/source code in order to add support for Visual Studio 2017 ourselves?

6+ months later and the website still has links to "buy" the product (although they ultimately don't work) and no real announcement of its discontinuation. This has not been handled in a professional manner at all. If there's no plan to continue monetizing this product, it should be open sourced (or at least source code given to purchasers) so we can support ourselves.

Visual studio 2019 here - I know it won't be supported :-(

Have you considered releasing the sources? - somebody would probably fight it and get it working with VS2019 instead of reimplementing multiple installers in some other product/language.
