Hello,

I want to perform a system search and then use the result of that search in the installation. For example, I need to find the value of existing registry key, and then put that value into .ini file. According to this article in Help Library (http://helpnet.installshield.com/robo/projects/installshield12helplib/SearchingInstalledData.htm), "Depending on the results of the search, the installation can store a value in a property and even use the property in an installation condition". But all I can see in system search is allowing/disallowing the installation based on the result. How can I "store a value in a property and even use the property in an installation condition"?




thanks,
Vadim Rapp

Installation condition is to prevent installation from continuing when condition is not met, which is what you see.
How can I "store a value in a property and even use the property in an installation condition"?To use the same property from System Search in INI file, please refer to this thread (http://community.installshield.com/showthread.php?t=134237&highlight=property+ini).
