FeatureMoveData does not move data!
Can someone help me understand why FeatureMoveData is not moving the data files in my features.
I am not a very experienced Installshield user. I have verified that the feature that I want is selected before calling FeatureMoveData.
To verify what I thought should get installed I added the code in the FeatureTotalSize Example from Installshield help. It showed the features selected and a rather large total size.
So why aren't the components under the feature being installed?

I had a similar problem but what I ended up doing was using FeatureTransferData instead. I also initialized MEDIA = 'DATA' before calling FeatureTransferData. It has been a while that I tried to play with FeatureMoveData, so I don't have the exact information you are asking for.
Hope this helps! :-)
Since you are not a very experienced user, make sure that you are not using FeatureMoveData with a Basic MSI project. It only works for the 'InstallScript MSI' Project type.
You could also try checking the return code of FeatureMoveData by using the following article:
I have verified the return value from FeatureMoveData is zero. And I am also sure that this is an Installscript MSI project. (I ran the upgrade from Installshield 6.11).
I will try the FeatureTransferData function and see how that works.
I just tried the FeatureTransferData and got the same results (feature's files not getting installed). If anyone has any other ideas, I am definitely open to them.
