After working through the sample provided I moved on to implementing one of my own sample apps and found that I couldn't find an easy way to copy the sample Bootstrap for the new project. What would you recommend?

Probably the simplest thing is to exit Visual Studio and then just copy the directory containing the boostrap project to your own location. Then you can open the bootstrap project and make the changes you need to.

This will include (as described in the help):

  • Changing the project strong name
  • Changing the Pre-build event to encrypt your own assembly
  • Removing the sample encrypted assembly and adding your own encrypted assembly(s) as embedded resources
  • Changing the Program.Main method to pass your assembly name to the ExecuteAssembly method
  • Changing the name of the output executable assembly (and version information) to your own name
  • Changing Splash Screen image

Thanks. I was hoping for something slicker, but that will work.
In the mean time I tried creating a new empty project and Adding existing files from the Bootstrap sample, but that led to lots of problems.

Where exactly do you change the name of the output executable assembly to your own name? I assume that in the samples this output file is Bootstrap.exe. Please confirm.
At the end you will have only one output executable file which will be part of the installer, regardless of the number of assemblies in your application. What is the location of this output file?

You change the output assembly name in the Project properties in the Application tab. The default assembly name for the sample is "Bootstrap"
