Configuring Multiple Instances in InstallShield

InstallShield 2020

Project:This information applies to Basic MSI projects.

For information on multiple-instance support for InstallScript projects, see Running an InstallScript Installation Multiple Times.

The typical process for adding multiple-instance support to a Basic MSI project is as follows:

1. For a product configuration in the Releases view, add a new instance for each instance that you want to support.
2. Set the properties for each instance.
3. Ensure that each instance will have its own isolated files and nonfile data on the target system if appropriate. For more information, see Special Considerations for Multiple-Instance Support.
4. Build your release.
5. Thoroughly test your release.
