Hello,
is there any possibility to build components without ide?

I do want to build a component list, listing a directory and files.
The script should be able to find out, if a new component to be
created is allready in msi present.

Example:
directory\files
file1.exe
file2.exe
file3.exe

after running a script, there are new components with key:
comp_file1_exe
comp_file2_exe
comp_file3_exe

All of them are linked to a new Feature:
Feature_New
- comp_file1_exe
- comp_file2_exe
- comp_file3_exe

How to automate it???

Perhaps look up "Automation interface" in the InstallShield Help Library.
