Feature conditions obsolete?

Hello everyone,

I tried installing several features conditionally, based on the target system's bitness (VersionNT, VersionNT64). As this didn't work I had a look into the setup's log and recognized that the ADDLOCAL property included all my features.

A little more research in the IS help got me to this sentence in the section "Condition Table":

The Condition table affects only the installation of features when none of the following properties have been set: ADDLOCAL, ...

I didn't set the ADDLOCAL property, so I assume it is always set automatically during the installation process. I also didn't find a way to change this behaviour.

So, am I right to conclude, that feature conditions can't be used with InstallScript MSI projects, because the ADDLOCAL property is always set?

Regards, Felix

InstallShield sometimes sets ADDLOCAL on the InstallUISequence. This is done in the setup type dialog (custom/typical selection)

@nirbar: note that this is a InstallScript MSI project, so the InstallScript dialogs most certainly set ADDLOCAL.

@fegorsch try setting the feature selection in your script, using the Feature* functions.
