I've used Installshield Express for a while and had no problem adding files to 2 different features I want to install.
But with Installshield 12 Professional, if I select a different feature on the Files and Folders page of the Installation Designer, nothing happens; the feature selected changes but it doesn;t do anything but change the text in the dropdown. So I can only create an install with one feature.
If this a bug or just cos I'm using the 21 day trial version? I can't see any reports of this as a bug
thanks

Look at the setup type view instead of the files and folder view. You should find a component that contains your file and is associated to your feature. Simple select your other feature and right click associate components. Select the component and now it will get installed when either feature 1 or feature 2 gets installed.
