Patching text files after install
I'm very new to InstallShield, so I had a few questions to pose:
Is there a way with InstallShield X to modify/patch text files after an installation has completed? My goal is to have an installer that merges a supplied text file (with my environmental configs depending on how I want to role something out) with configuration files that already exist on the system. I know that Ant with this, but I was wondering if I can do this directly in ISX or if I will have to use the Ant support
You can use the ASCII file update action to modify / create and edit text files. If you find that this bean doesn't meet your needs, you can create a custom action written in Java to do exactly what you want.
