I've just inherited the installer project for my group, and I'm having trouble finding resources for learning Installscript. Anybody know of any out there?

A related question:
- I need to create an installer that will backup some old files to a new directory and then overwrite the old files. Is there a way to do this outside of using InstallScript?

I am new to InstallScript myself but this site may be useful Click Here (http://www.installsite.org/)

Cool thx, though looks like most of the info there is from ver. 5-6. Guess I'm being optimistic hoping for Developer 9 help?

Most of the script functions that were available in 5-6 are still available in 9.

I would suggest you take a look at the default script events such as the OnFirstUIBefore function and take a look at how that works - maybe even debug through a simple install. That might give you a little idea at least on how/when the events get called and how the script works.
