Public MustOverride Sub CopyFromComponent ( _
	component As IComponent _


Type: System.ComponentModel.IComponent

The component to copy from.

The installer should take all the information it can from the live component, and store it for use at install time.

The following example defines a class MyInstallClass, which creates the event log and copies the properties of the event log component to the EventLogInstaller. It also checks whether the ServiceInstaller can perform the same kind of installation as the EventLogInstaller.

Dim myEventLogInstaller As New EventLogInstaller()
' Create a source for the specified event log, on local computer.
EventLog.CreateEventSource("MyEventSource", "MyEventLog", ".")
' Create an event log instance and associate it with the log . 
Dim myEventLog As New EventLog("MyEventLog", ".", "MyEventSource")
' Copy the properties that are required at install time from 
' the event log component to the installer.
