View Full Version : Distribution Question

When I build my installation, it creates a folder under:
\Release 1\DiskImages\DISK1

DISK1 contains my setup. Can I change the name of DISK1 to
something else?? If so, where do I change it in InstallShield??

As far as I know that cannot be changed. Why do you need it changed?

I want to put multiple installations in a common folder starting
with the DISK1 folder and having custom name will eliminate
a step in buring a CD with three installs on it. I can rename it
manually for my purposes but was hoping that InstallShield
would've provided a way to do what I want. Anyhow, it's
trivial, I'm just trying to save a step in the production process.

I just did a check and in the Release view, you can set the Release Location. You can set this to anything you want. This will allow you to place all of your installs in the same location.

Or, once each install is built, copy it to a location that you will use to cut to CD. This is normally done through an automated script that would build each project and then copy the result to a specified folder. This allows for other things to be added to the CD that are not part of the install project.
