I am making an installer on my PC, and it includes a linux installation. When the files are installed on a linux system, permission to execute is not allowed. I had to manually go and change permission after the install.
Is there any way to set file permissions from within Installshield X?
Thanks!

Yes, you can.
At least you could in ISMP.

In the files bean, there should be an 'edit' option for the files chosen.
Then go to the 'Attributes' tab and edit the Unix style Attributes.
