The company I work for has decided to use one install to install our core products to make things easier on everyone and to allow us to distribute patches. We are using serveral InstallShield X installs to install our products now. The InstallShield X installs use the combination Windows installer and InstallScript (I think).

I'm guessing that I need to create an InstallShield 11 project from scratch and create a feature for each of our products and then use subfeatures to install the different options for each product.

We are planning to use an encrypted file to control which products a customer is allowed to install.

I'm just wondering if anyone has any comments or suggestions.

I was fairly familiar with InstallShield 6 but I'm fairly new to InstallShield X and 11.

Thanks and wish me luck ;)
