Specifying a Run-Time Location for a Specific Package in an Advanced UI or Suite/Advanced UI Project

InstallShield 2012 Spring

Project: This information applies to the following project types:

Advanced UI
Suite/Advanced UI

Edition: The Advanced UI project type is available in the Professional edition of InstallShield. The Suite/Advanced UI project type is available in the Premier edition of InstallShield. For information about the differences between these two project types, see Advanced UI Projects vs. Suite/Advanced UI Projects.

InstallShield enables you to specify a different run-time location for each package in your project.

To specify a different run-time location for each package in your project:

1. In the View List under Organization, click Packages.
2. In the Packages explorer, select the package that you want to configure.
3. In the Location list, select the appropriate option.

Note that the location that you specify can be overridden at the release level. To avoid overriding the value that you selected for an individual package, the Package Location setting at the release level must be set to Follow Individual Selections. For more information, see Specifying the Run-Time Location for Advanced UI or Suite/Advanced UI Packages at the Release Level.

Tip: If you are configuring an Advanced UI or Suite/Advanced UI project for an update setup launcher, the run-time location of the packages must be either extracted from the setup launcher or downloaded from the Web. The update setup launcher cannot rely on packages that are stored on the source media.

For more information, see Adding Support for Automatic Updates to an Advanced UI or Suite/Advanced UI Installation.
