Ordered Win32 app dependencies
While dependencies for Win32 apps have been added in 1904, there is no way of defining the installation order within a certain dependency level.
So if I need to install several dependencies in a defined order there is still no acceptable way to do so.
Think of components like
- a prerequisites package
- a main install package
- a patch package
- a configuration package
I might use the configuration package as the root package here and add the others as dependencies in a defined order.
That would allow differnt configurations to be deployed using the same binaries and an easy way of handling updates of single components.
But this is not going to work without a defined order of the dependencies.
