RHI installer for plugins with rhinocommon


#1

in the link below
http://wiki.mcneel.com/developer/rhinoinstallerengine/dotnet
it says that
"Note This information pertains to plug-ins built with the older Rhino_DotNet SDK. This information does not apply to plug-ins built with RhinoCommon."

So I want to know how to create an installer for my my plugin with RhinoCommon?

It doesn’t work!
First of all my question is if there is a way to create a plug-in installer (rhi file) for plug-ins with RhinoCommon?
I built a new plug-in project in c# and I didn’t add any extra code from myself. then I complied it and I compressed it into a zip file and I changed its extension from .zip to .rhi. yet when I run the rhi file it says it’s not compatible. I wonder if I should do anything more?

OK. finally I found it myself. I missed to add this attribute to AssemblyInfo.cs file:

  [assembly: AssemblyInformationalVersion("2")]

It is discussed in http://wiki.mcneel.com/developer/rhinoinstallerengine/dotnet

but i didn’t read it very well : (
