Definitive list of files required for Installation

Post by sprezzatura » Wed Sep 01 2010

As a customer of Amyuni since 2005, I have always found it confusing to get a definitive list of what files are required to be included in an Installation package. As a service to my colleagues, I include herewith a list of everything I am aware of.

There are still some questions.
  • Do we still need acXMLParser.dll?
  • Do we need amyuni.inf?
  • What is atpdf400.cat? Do we need to include it? In this post, Joan from Amyuni says
    This file is available if the version you are installing is signed by Microsoft. If you are installing a build that is not signed by Microsoft you will not find atpdf400.cat file and you will not need it.
    This is ambiguous. Does "the version you are installing" refer to PDF Creator Install that we download from Amyuni, or to our own installer that we build for the application we are distributing?
  • Some new files appear for the first time with 4.0. What are pdfcreactivex.dll, PluginTWAIN.dll? Do we need to include them?
  • I assume Setup.exe does not need to be included?
Please let me know the status of the above files, and I will update and repost my list.

Thanks.

Here's the list. Spaces were added for clarity. (The Upload function does not allow PDF, or CSV or TXT or HTML. It was also unable to upload GIF or JPG or ZIP. I give up.)
