I have a Windows 8.1 app which uses the MS multi language toolkit (https://dev.windows.com/en-us/develop/multilingual-app-toolkit). I will require this on the build server for a successful build, how do we go about doing that?

Thanks

Stuart

    Hi Stuart,

    If the installer is relatively small and allows silent installation you can use a script to install missing dependencies during the build. For example install PS script for English multi-language toolkit looks like:

    $msiPath = "$($env:USERPROFILE)\MultilingualAppToolkit.msi"
    (New-Object Net.WebClient).DownloadFile('http://download.microsoft.com/download/3/2/4/324B517B-F5A3-480A-AAE0-DDB522358E96/MultilingualAppToolkit.msi', $msiPath)
    cmd /c start /wait msiexec /i $msiPath /q
    

    It worked pretty well and took only 20-30 sec to install.

    You can capture exact download URL using Fiddler.
