I wanted to apply the deployable package on fresh local vm.

Posted on by 51
I have this scenario for which i wanted to apply deployable package on fresh VM and get access the access of source code of custom models by the way the models in a package does not have any kind of security on them.
 
I tried applying deployable package through CMD. By the AXUPDATEINSTALLER.EXE method given below:
 
But by this method i only get the customization on front end but at visual studio i cannot access any elements of the models, that deployable package contains:
You can see in the example below i am trying to view code of class but i cant.
 
 
 
Kindly suggest any solution for this problem or suggest me any other way for deploying package on fresh vm so i can access the source code also for the reminder again the custom models of deployable package does not have any kind of security.

    If the provider of the package agrees, they could provide you with a model package which will contain the uncompiled source code, if it's really needed.

    As your screenshot proves, you can see the models in Visual Studio too. You can also see tables and their fields, classes and their methods and so on. But you can't see source code, because you simply don't have it. You would have to install source code instead of just deploying binaries.

    Hi martin,
     
    Thanks, for your response so you are saying if we have only deployable package the customization will only be available on front end.

    This is the expected result. A deployable package is intended for deployment of the application, therefore it creates application binaries. The source that was used to create these binaries isn't needed to run the application and therefore it's not included.
     
    If you want source code, installing a deployable package isn't the right thing to do. If the code is yours, simply configure source control in VS and get latest code. If it comes from a SW vendor, ask them to give you code (e.g. a model), not just a deployable package.
