Sorry if this not F# specific, but I’m new al all things windows, .Net and F# and this is the only community I know …
This is probably a very large topic but I’ll appreciate links to relevant articles - I can’t seem to get the wording correct when searching as I’m getting irrelevant results. Say I created a command line tool (later a GUI will be added) and I want to distribute it to friends and co-workers (without having to publish it to nuget or similar). How do I do it for windows? I’m completely clueless regarding distributing applications for Windows. I’m mostly interested in:
- I know there’s a way to create single executables but these seems to be very large and I prefer to to have to use it unless I don’t have a choise.
- I remember seeing a way (with
dotnetcli) to create a directory with or without the .Net runtime. What does a user do with this directory? Is there a way to link the executable to somewhere in the PATH or does he have to add this directory to the PATH (which seems to be unmanageable after a couple of dozens tools)?
- Is there a way to create an installer that will handle this for me?
- How do I control the name of the generated CLI to be different than the project name?
Thanks in advance
