I have several files the I want to be kept on the installation disk (tools, Acrobat reader etc...) but not to be installed on the target system.

Is there any place where I can put these files in my installshield project or do I have to manually copy them on the CD?

The Setup Files view is for files you want to be available to the running installation but not to be installed; see, for example, the online help page "Adding Files to the Disk1 Folder".

Thank you, I indeed didn't see that option.

I have another problem I couldn't find a solution in the help library :
On installShield 5, I could create Invisibles folders on the target system. I can't find how to do that under IS7.

Thank you

How did you create hidden folders with InstallShield 5? (If nothing else, you could presumably call SetFileInfo with FILE_ATTR_HIDDEN from InstallScript.)

Indeed, we just used FILE_ATTR_HIDDEN under IS 5. I just hoped that some options existed in the file creation to put folder invisible without any script, but if not we will continue to use this command.

Thanks
