Features (Setup Architecture)
The Features page lets you define the conceptual components of your application in a hierarchical manner. As long as the respective dialog is enabled at runtime, end-users will see the features defined in this view, and be able to select/deselect them to customize their product installation at runtime.
New features created in this page also have accompanying elements inserted in the Web Media Blocks page. These accompanying elements associate web download segments with the newly created features.

The two-way integrated IDE emits or updates the underlying setup script every time the visual view is used. If you are using InstallAware scripting in your setups, the following information identifies the changes made by this visual page to your setup script.
This page emits the following types of scripting commands: Define Component, Define Web Media Block, Get Component State, Set Component State. Additional general scripting commands may be emitted.
This page does not require any scripting commands to be present, however some pre-existing commands may provide better operation. Template and wizard generated setups provide all necessary commands.
