ComponentInstaller.IsEquivalentInstaller Method (ComponentInstaller)

 

Determines if the specified installer installs the same object as this installer.

Namespace:   System.Configuration.Install
Assembly:  System.Configuration.Install (in System.Configuration.Install.dll)

abstract IsEquivalentInstaller : 
        otherInstaller:ComponentInstaller -> bool
override IsEquivalentInstaller : 
        otherInstaller:ComponentInstaller -> bool

Parameters

otherInstaller
Type: System.Configuration.Install.ComponentInstaller

The installer to compare.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if this installer and the installer specified by the otherInstaller parameter install the same object; otherwise, false.

Typically, IsEquivalentInstaller returns true only if this installer and the installer specified by the otherInstaller parameter install the same object. In such a case, calling the Install or Uninstall method on either installer results in the same system state.

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