This page is the new home of Bootstrapper Manifest Generator.

This tool is a set of tools for working with the Pre-requisite bootstrapper in Visual Studio that is used by Setup Projects and ClickOnce. There are projects to enable you to create your own "packages" to add additional pre-requisite installers to Visual Studio, and also to build a stand alone bootstrapper using MSBuild.

You should download the version that matches the version of Visual Studio you are using.

I'm not able to do anything on Windows 7 x64. It constantly throws exceptions. I can't imagine how such bad designed product can pass QA.

Do you have all the required SDK's?

BMG.exe (Bootstrapper Manifest Generator) cannot run in 64bit mode. Update the bmg.exe to force 32bit.

Run VS Command Prompt as Administrator:
corflags /32BIT+ "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Bootstrapper Manifest Generator for VS2008\BMG.exe"

Any chance we can get the source code of this so we can fix it?
