Hello all ,
I'm a newbie in installations and would like to ask following question:
I want to write some wrapper installer that by itself will only perform some operations and call to external installers (it will not include any Features/Components).
I do not want that this installer will update nothing in registry and also register itself for Add/Remove programs. As I see InstallShield does part of such registrations automatically.
How disable automatic registrations\updating registries performed by InstallShield itself (also creating folders etc)? huh.gif
Thanks in advance

Hi Sandra,

InstallShield might be the wrong tool for you - it adds at least 2Mb overhead to your installation. It is good for complex installations, but in your case any other scriptable installer (like the free NSIS) would be able to run other files and do much more with just 30kb of overhead.
