memo control + rich text format question
Posted 26 July 2004 - 17:32
I'm trying to write a utility that can convert an RTF file (embedded in a Memo Control) into a format that MSI recognizes.
Does anyone know what kind of formatting is done?
I know that installshield can automagically convert the formatting, but I'd like to bypass the installshield process when making last minute edits through orca.
If anyone has any insight into this, I would greatly appreciate it.

After you create an msi file in installshield, open up the msi file in orca.
Now go to the table 'Control'. Assuming that your installer uses a license agreement, there will be an entry in the table that reads:
now under the 'Text' column will be the RTF file that you inserted but in a different format.
Any idea what sort of formatting this is?
