Installation Packages

Windows Installer (MSI) packages are available to simplify the redistribution of SocketTools components. These installers are included with SocketTools, but can also be downloaded separately if needed. Additional technical information is available in our knowledge base.

If you’re redistributing a 32-bit application, then all you need is the x86 installer package. If you’re redistributing a 64-bit application, then you need the x64 installer package. The installer packages will make sure the SocketTools components and libraries are installed in the correct location and will perform the appropriate version checking.

If you have your own installer for your software, then you can redistribute those MSI packages with your installation and use the msiexec command to perform the installation. For example, this would install the 32-bit .NET interop libraries with no UI displayed:

msiexec /i cstools10_interop_x86.msi /qn
