Changing the Order in Which Text File Changes Are Made

InstallShield 2020

Project:This information applies to the following project types:

Basic MSI
InstallScript MSI
Merge Module
MSI Database

This information does not apply to InstallScript projects; however, the InstallScript language includes string functions for finding and modifying string variables and literals. You can use these functions in InstallScript projects.

Text file changes are made on the target system in the order in which they are listed in the Text File Changes view.

To change the order in which text file changes are made at run time:

1. In the View List under System Configuration, click Text File Changes.
2. In the Text File Changes explorer, right-click one of the change set items or change items that you want to move, and then click either Move Up or Move Down.

Repeat the last step until all of the text file changes are correctly sorted.
