View Full Version : Feature that is linked to another feature ?

08-29-2013, 05:33 AM

In my basic MSI project let’s say I have feature A and B, now I want to create feature C that will include all components in feature A except for one component.
What is the best way to handle this ?

(I don’t want to associate all components in feature A also to the new one since in case I add new \ move components I will have to add it twice.)

Right-click on the "Feature C" and select the Associate Components... from the context menu. In the Associate Components dialog, select the components that you want to include and click OK.

Hope that helps.

Another way to do it is to use Automation Interface (http://documentation.installshield.com/installshield20helplib/installshield20helplib_CSH.htm#helplibrary/IHelpAutomation.htm) to make non-persistent changes (associating components in Feature A to Feature C) during build time.
