Choosing the support
When creating the setup program via the wizard, you have the ability to choose the options regarding the setup support.
The setup program is generated in a directory in order to be copied onto different supports.
By default, the setup program is generated in the "Install" sub-directory of your application.
The different supports are as follows:
  • Setup diskettes (not available for the compact setups)
    The setup program is created in the default directory then it is copied to the diskettes.
    Once the diskettes have been created, the files found in the generation directory of the setup can be deleted.
  • Multiple directories, cut to the size of diskettes (not available for the compact setups)
    The files of the setup program are grouped into several sub-directories. The size of the files found in each sub-directory does not exceed the size of a diskette (1.44 MB by default). Then, the content of each sub-directory can be copied onto a diskette.
  • Single directory
    The setup program is created in a single directory.
  • Self-extracting executable
    The setup program is created as a self-extracting executable. When this executable is urn on the user computers, the setup program is automatically decompressed ans started.
    This solution is recommended if the setup program is distributed via Internet.
  • Support with autorun
    The setup program is created in a single directory in order to be copied onto a CD.
Note: If Clear the directory before generating the setup is checked, the generation directory of the setup will be cleared before generating the new setup program. This option allows you to remove the useless files from the generation directory of the setup program.
Security
Several options used to secure the setup are proposed:
  • Protect the setup by password: You have the ability to protect the setup by password (not available for the compact setups). In this case, you must specify the password to use. This password will be requested when running the setup program.
  • Versions 18 and later
    Sign the setup with the certificate: To guarantee the integrity of the setup pack, you have the ability to sign the setup. All you have to do is select the certificate to use. The wizard automatically proposes the certificates available on the current computer, in the personal store of Windows certificates.
