Questions on saving with installer

For questions about using Classic.

Post » Fri Mar 27, 2009 2:41 am

Does saving an exe with an installer include a prompt for updating directX to the version construct uses, so that users can easily install and play the distributed game without additional updates? Also is that C++ runtime update (or whatever construct prompts when it installs) required to play games? Thanks. :mrgreen:

I believe it does - without checking as I don't have Construct to hand here - save with a DX updater, however, I am not sure if it upgrades to the latest version the runtime used, as it was changed since the installer was made. The C++ runtime shouldn't be needed as plugins and the runtime are static linked.

I'll check this out later today to be sure.

It checks for an older version of DX; and in addition, I believe I have lost the installer source code, unless I'm looking in the wrong place. Bummer.
