Installer.Commit Method (IDictionary)


When overridden in a derived class, completes the install transaction.

Namespace:   System.Configuration.Install
Assembly:  System.Configuration.Install (in System.Configuration.Install.dll)

public virtual void Commit(
	IDictionary savedState


Type: System.Collections.IDictionary

An IDictionary that contains the state of the computer after all the installers in the collection have run.

Exception Condition

The savedState parameter is null.


The saved-state IDictionary might have been corrupted.


An exception occurred during the Commit phase of the installation. This exception is ignored and the installation continues. However, the application might not function correctly after the installation is complete.

Notes to Inheritors:

If you override the Commit method in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's Commit method first in your derived method. The Commit method is called only if the Install method of each installer in this instance's InstallerCollection succeeds. The Commit method stores information needed to do a correct uninstallation, and calls the Commit method of each installer in the collection.

The following example demonstrates the Commit method of the Installer class. A class is derived from the Installer base class and the Commit method are overridden.

// Override the 'Commit' method of the Installer class.
public override void Commit( IDictionary mySavedState )
   base.Commit( mySavedState );
   Console.WriteLine( "The Commit method of 'MyInstallerSample'"
                     + "has been called" );
