TRUE and with Ver 5.5 you can use a DYNAMIC file group which will
automatically include all files in all subdirectories without having
to explicitly name them. Very useful if you have to add/delete
files from the directories.
By the way, why can't we check a box "include subdirs" when inserting
files so we don't have to use the Explorer if we don't want to!

I currently use isx2.13, and I use the group feature to install datafiles,
these are set no never overwrite. So when a current user installs over the
current installation my sample data does not overwrite there existing data.
I am evaluating ISX3.0 which has no file group feature, how can I do this?
ComponentSetTarget functions allows you to set the Target directory for a
particular component using script defined variables. What I am looking for is
how to create a file group with files in the file group having a relative path
in relation to IS project. This relative path is going to be used to retrieve
the files into cabs ( for example data1.cab) when building the media. I hope
that clarifies the issue.
