    Unhappy Variable Issue

    Hi, Can somebody tell me whether is it possible to use variables set by one installer in another created using Installanywhere 5.5?

    IA variables are local to any installer (unless they use merge modules, and in this case the variables are known in those modules). But if you've got an installer A and you want to create another installer B, unless you've got the original project, how can you know what IA variables the original installer uses?!? And the previous is true, no matter which IA version!

    Question

    Normally yes, but what is your use case (i.e. why do you need variables or what variables from the first one do you need in the second one?)
