Hi all,
We currently have an installer that bundles our binaries as well as all of our dependencies as a single large .exe that our users download from their network. Our problem is that this installer is *very* large and most of the time our users only need a small fraction of what is all packaged to be installed. This is a major headache for us as our customers have slow networks so forcing them to download a large installer is a problem.


What we'd like to have is a *small* installer that is initially downloaded that has the logic to dynamically download from a server only those components that need to be installed. Does InstallShield support something like this? If so, how? Any insight is appreciated.
