Feature Dependency

Postby Tiago » Wed Jun 24, 2009 8:10 am

Can I create dependency relationships between features in a way that, when in the "componentstree" dialog, if the user selects a feature that depends on another one, this other feature is automatically selected as well? I remember clearly that IS had this functionality, so I'm wondering if IA offers something similar I could use.

Thanks in advance.

You can use MSIcode for this:

Hi Candice,

Is there a way to reflect the suggested automatic selection in the "componentstree" dialog, so the user can have a feedback about what the installer is about to do?

Thanks in advance.

Not other than re-displaying the dialog with maybe an additional infotip, sorry.
