Hi all,
I want to have a setup.exe/MSI with 4 features, viz feature 1,2,3,4.

Feature 4 should not be installed when double clicking setup.exe. Rather an advertised shorcut for feature 4 should be installed on StartMenu (or what ever) shortcut. When the user clicks that advertised shortcut, feature 4 will be installed.

I tried this but failed. If i run in advertised mode with /j command, only advertised shortcut will be installed and once clicking on shorcut the correponding feature4 will be installed.

Can i club both? What i want is to have a setup.exe which should install normal features and install an advertised shortcut for a feature.

I really dont know what i am asking is proper but i just want to know can i have both? I am not able to do this.

In the properties for feature 4, set "Advertised" to "Favor advertise". Then install normal (no /j)
