IS there going to be a Stand Alone Build for IS X?

I'm not sure what you mean by "stand alone"?

Any you're the Product Manager?!?

From the online materials:
"InstallShield X enables you to improve the quality of your installations by creating them on a clean build PC. InstallShield X provides a Standalone Build module that allows you to maintain a clean build machine by using only the part of InstallShield X that compiles the installations. This clean build system gives you more control over the quality of the installations you compile. The Standalone Build module installs to a single directory and has no registry or file dependencies. It can be installed to a clean build machine by simply copying the files. No registry entries or other setup steps are required. The Standalone Build module can coexist with other versions of InstallShield X , and you can run it from the command line. "

Also, the documentation mentions the SSAuto10 interfaces (similar to the SSAuto9 and SSAuto9SP1 interfaces).

Where are they?

The stand alone build module is available from your product CD or from the Update Service. (Just go to Tools -> Check for Updates and the InstallShield X Clean Build System should be listed as available for download.)

That was the first thing I tried. The Tools -> Check for Updates only shows the modules and objects available for IS X. I don't have a product CD as I downloaded the install. It's also not available on the product download site for IS X, as it is for DevStudio 9.

The Stand Alone Build Installer is also available in the "Files and Utilities" section of the InstallShield X download center.

And the corresponding link (http://mars.installshield.com/is/x/windows/standalone/setup.exe) does not work!

Here you go. Sorry for the inconvenience.:

Let us know what your experience is with the standalone build once you've played with it a bit.
