View Full Version : Differentiating InstallShield modifications from user's
10-11-2004, 10:08 AM
When I update a file with the ASCII File Update Product Action, InstallShield will ask on reinstall whether I want to overwrite the modified file. Is there any way I can convince InstallShield that it was me and not the user who modified this file so that the user doesn't get this dialog (unless, of course, they modified the file)?

Similarly, if the installation fails, the user is prompted whether to remove the file that I modified.
I'll hear any idea, no matter how crazy ;-).

You could change the replace option to always....

Hi Jeremy. I'll probably end up doing precisely that although I don't like it that if the user modifies the file, his changes will be silently clobbered.

A more convoluted way to do it would be to set the replace option to always and through a couple of wizard actions backup/delete the file.
