Hi !

I speak french, I apologize for my english !

I use InstallShield Professional X for 3 days and I made a basic installor.
Now, I want to create a more sophisticated installor.

But, in my Setup.rul, there're only 140 lines ! Where is the others lines ?!

I want to create a custom installer :

- where the user can choose the elements to be installed
Example :
* Basic (always checked)
* Program 1
* Program 2
* Program 3
* ...

- where a serial number is required and, according to the serial, certain programs are inalienable.

To create this installor, I must have access to the source code and I don't know how !

Moreover, if somebody knows how to make the explained options, I'm interested !

If it's possible, answer in a easy english ! smile.gif

I can help you. But I could not understand your requirements. what are you talking about? Is it Basic MSI or InstallScript based project?

To customize, first you need to accumulate your requirements and decide in which phase you want to execute the requirements.

As I'm working with the InstallScript, if you want any idea regarding InstallScript I can provide that with more detail. Please explain your problem.

Hi Rajib !

My project is a InstallScript based Project.

here, with images, the steps of the installation : (It is my actual installor)


1. A welcome message

2. The user must enter his name, his company and his serial number. (Without serial number, he can't continue)

3. He choose the install directory

4. He choose the components to install but I want that "Basic" is always checked.
Moreover, according to the serial (We must code a decryptor), one of more components are disabled (The user can't check these options)

user posted image

5. A summary of the installation

user posted image

6. The files copy

7. The "end message"


The first thing that I would like to make is to oblige the installation of the option "basic".
It's, I think, the easiest thing.

Thank you Rajib for your help ! If you want, I can send you my Setup.rul

To see (and potentially customize) all the default script code, use the combo boxes in the script view to insert the event handlers.
To get some idea you could look at article "Event Map for InstallShield 6" at http://www.installsi...en/ispt_doc.htm . Things have slightly changed since version 6 but the basic concept is the same.
