View Full Version : How to exclude Linux based components on Win 32 and vice versa.

I have a component that is only installed if the target operating system is Linux. However, this linux component is still included in all setup programs, not just setuplinux.bin, and adds 20+ MB to my setupwin32.exe installer. Is there any way through the ISMP 11.5 UI to exclude a linux based component in a win32 install and vice versa?

Doesn't unchecking the boxes from:
Media --> Releases --> xxx Platform Support

do what you are after?

The wording indicates that it would, but I generate installs that are still the same size. This looks like a piece of functionality that they had bigger plans for but never quite fleshed out. Anyway, the short answer is, thanks for the suggestion, but that does not solve my problem.

My install is automated, so I guess I'll just write a script to rip out the linux based install pieces, build the windows install, then do the opposite to build linux, but that sure seems like a painful way to do this...any other ideas?
