Registration steps for shell package that has no UI

Post by toddsou » Mon Jan 22, 2018 3:23 pm

Hello-

We have a SP Select shell package which has no UI features/menus/commands, and just responds to certain Order events.

When I register the shell package on a user's machine, I am following the typical 2-step pattern of:

spregpkg.exe /m:register /p:MyNoUIShellPackage.dll

select.exe /setup


However, when I examine the Event Viewer on the user's machine, I see the following error entry:

The commands for package MyNoUIShellPackage were not merged. Parameter '' cannot be null.
Parameter name: serializationStream


Can I conclude that I can skip the step to rebuild the command table for this particular shell package? (or ANY shell package which does not possess any UI elements ?)

Thanks!

Sorry. We expect all steps to be followed since we may perform additional package installation functions (now or in the future) as necessary. We reserve the right to make changes to these components without notification.
