Multi Language Support Mobile Device support

Postby Debstep » Mon Jan 09, 2006 11:26 am

can you provide any information about multi language Support for InstallAware? Is there any localization Support?

Also, Is there any built in support for WindowsCE, PPC, Blackberry, Smart Phone ?

What about support for java programs

Any special support for Server installations?

Thank you

Hi Debbie

Candice is out of the day so I'll cover her for today.

You may build multi language installs in InstallAware - this is very easily done using the Localization Wizard. This wizard creates a folder which contains a redistributable visual translation tool, and exported setup strings. You may then use this visual translation tool to localize your setup - either on-site or off-site (since the tool is redistributable, you are free to send the exported strings to an external translation office, and have them do the translations for you; without having to send them a copy of InstallAware and/or your setup project). Once the strings are localized you simply import them back into your setup using the Localization Wizard, and you've got yourself a multi lingual setup.

You can also install Java programs that need the Java runtime. We already have a template setup project that pre-installs the Java runtime for you, which you may use as a starting point for your Java projects.

I am not sure what you mean about server installations...but let me address this as best I can. InstallAware can install SQL Server Express, it can run SQL scripts against Microsoft/My/Oracle SQL servers, it can create IIS web sites and virtual folders, it can create or delete server shares. This is what comes to mind when you say server, but please let me know if I missed anything.

Finally, we do not support Windows CE, PPC, Blackberry or Smart Phone installs at this time.

Please let me know if you have any more questions!

Thank you for the quick reply.
Do you think you will be adding mobile device support?

How does InstallAware deal with signed code?

Thanks

Hi Debbie!

Yes, mobile device support is planned for InstallAware, although I do not have a firm deadline on it yet.

I am not sure what you mean by signed code...InstallAware supports code signing created setup packages, if that is what you mean.

I hope that helps!

What is the current status of Mobile Deployment support?

Is it available? If not then when will it be available?

What mobile platforms are supported?

Dear shingo,

You can simply create your own "language selection" dialog, show it as your first dialog, and then set the LANGUAGE variable to the selected language.
I found this example for you:
http://installaware.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4267
You can download the Localization file there, it has an example of exactly what you are trying to do.

Good luck,
