hello all
I am using InstallShield Developer 7.0
I am now writing a setup program that copy some
files to local harddisk.

the Setup program should have a condition that
the files only will be copied when user select
yes (radio button), otherwise the files will
not copy to the harddisk

Anyone have idea to do this ?

thx a lot !

You can use AskYesNo dialog in order to ask Yes or No option. See online help library for more details regarding this function. Now depending on Yes and No option, you can hide the feature means prevent features from installation. For hiding feature see article Q105392 on IS kb site.

Hope this helps!!
