Sharing CEF's unmanaged resources

Postby metaflox » Fri Apr 15, 2016 6:42 pm

I have been developing many desktop applications that use CEF to render it's UI , but I need make them to share CEF's unmanaged resources ,
Then this question came to my mind , Why not make an installation package for each version of CEF to be installed globally in system , contains the common unmanaged resources .. So the installer of application that based on CEF , checks if that required version of CEF is already installed , and incase not , it opens either the required package's web-installer , or a link to it's download page.

thanks.

You could do this with your application but it wouldn't work for all applications. For example, CEF can be built with custom flags or source patches that don't necessarily change the reported version. Also, since there are potentially many versions (each commit is a version) the number of installed versions could quickly grow out of control.
