View Full Version : Customising - Not enough disk space message

11-12-2004, 05:41 AM
Installscript 10.5 Project
I have two mutually exclusive built-in data features
i) installdata - data installed to local drive (major install)
ii) cddata - data left on CD (minor install)

My Installer determines there is sufficient disk space on at least a drive using both GetValidDrivesList and GetDiskSpaceEx before presenting the Installation Dialog.

By default, the major install (Complete) will be selected by our users and we wanted to customise the Error Message that comes when there is insufficient space to guide them to the second install

The text we want to change is

There is not enough space to install these option(s). Please free
up some disk space or modify your selection

There is not sufficient space to install the data layers. Please use the
Custom option and to modify your selection

Also I would like to change descriptive texts for Installation Dialog Setup Type, Choose Destination Location and Select Features screens.

Thanks in Anticipation.

There is a solution available - you basically have to override the base
functionality of an installshield function.

See this thread here: http://community.installshield.com/showthread.php?t=95368&highlight=SdOutofDiskSpace

You basically override the function in the SDCOMTREE.RUL file and implement your own message where is shows the message box (in the OK case statement).

Good luck,
