Windows Installer now supports custom service names, allowing side by side installs

Sample installer attached to [LDEV-4468] - Lucee


Both a Great and Terrible thing…
Great in that I’ve always wanted this and was reading up on how to do it manually a week or so ago…

Terrible in that it will perpetuate my laziness to get off windows =)


After some more testing, I found and have fixed some bugs relating to this

  • the installer now creates seperate start menu groups for each version
  • the Lucee service control now passes n the service name

Wow… This is THE BEST…
I’ve needed this for a while…
for once… laziness has paid off because I though I would have to go down the docker path and chase images around…

Great Work People!!
