View Full Version : Shortcut Feature Option is Always Install ONLY

11-16-2011, 01:21 AM

I am evaluating the Express edition and I was wanting to make a shortcut in the Startup folder optional for the user to select. I have created a new Feature called Install Startup Shortcut, but in the new shortcut that I have created in the Folders, I cannot change the Feature from "Always Install". If I should be able to change it, then can you lead me in the right direction? If not, why is it showing up in the user interface?

I have attached a screenshot.

Thanks for any help!

That is because you have created an advertise shortcut (http://helpnet.flexerasoftware.com/Robo/BIN/Robo.dll?tpc=/robo/projects/isxhelp18/ShortcutTypes.htm) that targets the key file of the "Allways Install" feature. To change the Feature setting, you need to change the Target setting as to point to the key file of the new feature in the Shortcuts view, or move the [INSTALLDIR]PublicFolderChecker.Primary.Output file from the "Allways Install" feature to the new feature in the Features and Files view.

Hope that helps.
