View Full Version : set "checked and disabled" feature

01-09-2009, 02:35 AM

In the Feature Selection Dialog, I want to set some features as checked and disabled (means that customer must install them), how can I implement it?

My workaround is set some invisible feature, and use the dependencies to let other features checked and disabled.

Thanks in advances,

hi honlory,

i Understand that you want to some features to be set and should be disabled...
In order to set or it will be checked by default.,means suppose FeatureA is installing along with that FeatureB should installed then you need to select the which feature you want as mandatory.

In order to do that;
Select the Installation Designer Tab, then on the right side there are list of options given,
Select the Second option that is Organization under that select Features.
The moment you select the Features option, Installshield will show you your Feature Architecture.
Select the the Feature you want to set it to Mandatory.
On the right hand side there will be list of properties displayed one of them is
"Required Features" using this you can set the mandatory Features.

Now regarding the disabling the feature has to be implemented using InstallScript.

Hope this will help you

thanks and regards
