Hi All,

We are using Installshield 2008 for our project and we have main installer and patch installer developed. In the main installer, we have 11 feaures and it can be selected during runtime as in any normal installer. But, in patch, we didn't maintain any feature. We are just backup the old files and replace the new files during patch install. The problem is, if a user has only minimum features (say 7 for example), but the installer installs patch for all features. Patch installer didn't maintain any feature(s) concept gives this issue. Could any one can suggest the best way to implement feature(s) concept in Patch installer which should check for features already installed by main installer in target machine and install only those features?
