Using the InstallScript model, when I create a One-Click internet installation, I don't seem to get the benefit of downloading just the features selected. Is the entire cab file downloaded? If so, is there a way to compress each component into its own cab file?

Thanks in advance.

in the options for Release Wizard the cabs can be
[list=1]
One Cab per component
One Cab per Feature
Multiple cabs based on size
[/list=1]

if you select one cab per componebt and you have one file per component then you get what you need.

Are you sure I can do this in the InstallScript model? I only see this option when building an MSI install.

:eek: My mistake, I must have clicked the wrong link, you can do this, but in windows installer scripts. To much beer the night before I think.

Again sorry.

ok i cant quite seem to figure this out.
i choose the release wizard and choose the right options, i think, but it does not create the web pages like the project assistant does. am i not doing something right?
