Deploy several applications into one directory



  • Hi,

    I have 2 (or more) applications that I would like to deploy on users computer.
    I want to give them separate installer (one per application) because I want to give each user only the applications required for him.

    But I would like that when a user install 2 applications, they are installed into the same target directory in order not to duplicate libraries. And that only one maintenance tool handle both applications.

    But I have not found how to do this.
    For the moment, I am able to build an installer for one application, that contains all libraries, but when I try to install a second application into the same directory, I have an error because the target directory is not empty.

    I am able to build an installer that contains all applications, but this is not what I want.

    Any idea ?

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Not a direct answer but I'd look at the Qt online installer, since you can add/remove Qt versions, there might be something similar that's doable for your use case.



  • Thank you for your answer.
    This is a point I have looked at, but I haven't found how to add a new repository to an existing maintenance tool without manual intervention from the user. If this is possible, I would appreciate having information about this.
