Hi all,

We are having some issue with Installshield.

Scenario
We have an InstallShield project which includes the ‘Primary output’ and ‘Content Files’ from a web application. We are using Visual Studio 2003 and Installshield 11.

Requirement
We require InstallShiled to generate the long filenames and the short filenames for each file. This is a requirement for the package validation which is part of our deployment process.

Issues
When the msi is built, InstallShield does not generate short filenames for any of the files that are generated as part of the ‘primary output’ or ‘content files’. There is a ‘Filename format’ switch in InstallShield, but that does not seem to be affecting anything.

Thanks for your help.

Regards,
Mohammed Zahid
