I am trying to customize the express to the way I want it. I would like
to prompt the user with a checkbox or option button whether they want a
complete file overwrite or they want to only overwrite older files.
Also I would like for install shield to overwrite active files. These
options are very important to me. I am trying the evaluation version, I
was using a competitors and it wouldn't work correctly, and with your I
got it on the first try. Now to customize.....

Aaron,

Express offers different file transfer options where you can overwrite the
files based on the Version, Date or always where you can specify these
options at design time. If you need to display a dialog box for the user
to choose these options, you will need to write a custom DLL to accomplish
that and add it as an extension.

When you say active files, do you mean locked files? Express will handle
these for you properly.
