Seeking Advice on installer approach...
Posted 14 April 2004 - 18:42
1) Some JSP files (can go anywhere, but I need to edit an XML file in WebApp dir for Apache to point to where they decide to install to)
2) Some ASP files ( need to be put in a particular directory of another Web application that is already installed - I need to prompt user for that location)
3) Sample files ( not an issue - will go in c:\program files\company\product\samples\ directory)
4) Application files (need to prompt user for location they plan to use as the output directory for another Application)
The issue I see is that some features need to go to differnet user-defined paths.
Options(as I see them):
a) should I create a seperate installers for each feature requiring user defined install paths?
b)should I create an installscript project and add a bunch of custom screens and custom code to move everything to the right places?
Many thanks in advance,

You should be able to do this quite easily by using the features install dir.

-installScript, BasicMSI, or InstallScript & MSI?
I was thinking installScript because based on the documentation, it is the most flexible, but implementing custom Dialog features in DevStudio doesn not seem to be very straightforward, at least from what I've read in the documentation.
thanks in advance...
