hi,

i am using the release flags to build 2 different projects. is there anyway to include components depending on the chosen "release flag" to build the install.

i don't want to select the components when installing, instead i want to select the right components when building the install. this way my msi file wont be very big with unnecessary information.

thanks for any suggestions.

I am afraid you have the wrong Newsgroup here :) Assuming you are using IPWI or Developer 7.0, you should post this on installshield.developer7.general or another relative newsgroup. This one is for InstallShield Express.

However to answer your question, you could create two features, give them two different Release Flags and associate the components with the proper features. That is, treat each feature as a mini product setup. Remember that you can associate the same component with multiple features (in case you want to share components). So when you build with a release flag only that particular feature (mini-Setup) is made.
