Add/Remove Features with language packs from control Panel

Postby dileep.tiwari » Fri Jul 17, 2020 6:41 am

Does InstallAware support language packs as separately install-able, add-able after install (via Control Panel), and removable.
For EG.

Suppose on installation I selected English as a language selection and installed a product. When I imported Language from Localize tab I imported 14 languages like English, Japanese, Korean, Russian, etc.
after installation of Product now I want to change the language selection from English to other languages like Japanese, or Russian. can we do this with installaware.

if yes can you please tell the process or steps so that I can implement this. I was trying to find this with installaware but I am not able to get it.

something like this


please help
Thanks

It's not fully clear to me to which language packs you are referring.

If these are custom components part of your application (similar to the Visual Studio language packs you posted as example), you can surely handle such components as Setup Features.

Here you will find a ready to use sample project ("Features sample").

Here what I wanted to do is:-

from control panel if I am selecting add/remove feature then I want a selection page for languages like visual studio languages, and if I selected other language (default selected Lang is English) like Japanese then it should overwrite the language from English to Japanese. (how can I achieve this scenario ).

we are adding languages selection box to our installer from Design tab---> localize option. see attachment.
can we have any ways to what languages selection available with this dropdown in language box we can get those selections from control panel add/remove feature and we can change the selected language anytime. is this scenario achievable.

As I said previously, you can surely handle such "language components" as Setup Features.
By default behavior, the setup wizard uses the "Components Tree - Dialog" to visually represent the features defined with the installer.

Here Features are organized as: Feature A, B, C and D. In your case these "Features" may be Instead; English, French, Spanish, German and so on,

Then in place of the above "Standard dialog", you may create your own "Component Selection Dialog".

Once again, try to have a look at the "Feature Sample" available from the link I posted previously.
The sample demonstrates how features work, and how these can be used to modify the current target installation as with adding or removing features.

By default, the compiled sample displays such "Component Dialog" when:
- at install time, the "Some Features" option gets selected from the previous "SetupType Dialog".
- at maintenance time: Control Panel -> Add Remove Program -> Modify installation.

...and if you prefer, you may also change the above behavior.
