View Full Version : trialware and properties creation

05-24-2005, 06:45 PM

I have this java jar. I used the universal installshield and created a setup.exe . It works fine. Now, I have to add two more functionalities to it.
1> Create a trialware feature
2> create a properties file or an ini file.

But in Universal installshield I am unable to do either. So I used BasicMSI and in it I used this setup.exe.
Well, now, when I test it, it is going through the setup/dialogs twice once the BasicMSI and other is the universal.

So, please advice how to do the above functionalities for a java application.

Please help.

It sounds like you need to either combine your setups into one single project, or to run one of the setups silently. The help files and the knowledge base at http://support.installshield.com/ have plenty of information on silent installations.

If you search the KB and Help documentation for [silent mode install] (http://www.installshield.com/search/gsearch.asp?filter=p&site=installshield_com&output=xml_no_dtd&client=installshield_com&proxystylesheet=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.installshield.com%2Fsearch%2Fsearchresults.xsl&oe=UTF-8&as_epq=&q=silent+mode+install&area=kb&area=helpnet) the first couple results look relevant to running a Universal setup silently, and further on down you get InstallScript MSI. Searching for [silent command line] seems to round out InstallScript and Basic MSI.
