Hi,

I am an installshield user investigating converting to installanywhere.

Depending on my application server I want to change my file set. I have an install for each application server type and want to prevent unnecessary files from being included in the assembly due to size considerations.

Is there a way I can do this through the UI - through rules? Or if I have to do this with custom code, where in the API can I manipulate the fileset at build time?

thanks

You might be able to do this through SpeedFolders and a build script, but not directly from inside IA...

Best Regards,
Yves

thanks for the reply,

I ended up getting around it by creating merge modules for my common files that I then use by my app server specific projects
