[wix-users] Registering an out-of-process COM server

Heat does not have the ability to capture out-of-proc COM registration. It's quite a challenging thing to do.

We built a commercial harvesting solution that supports out-of-proc COM (https://www.firegiant.com/wix/wep-documentation/harvesting/selfreg/). It's available via the FireGiant WiX Expansion Pack (https://www.firegiant.com/products/wix-expansion-pack/).

Subject: [wix-users] Registering an out-of-process COM server


Does WiX/Heat have a way of capturing the entries required to register an out-of-process COM server in an executable.

Or, is there another way of doing this? I'm looking to be able to add registry entries to the component that houses the server executable file.

Any help appreciated.
Kind regards
