Configuring the setup program

Overview

Two cases may occur when you configure the setup program:
  • the setup program was never configured before.
    The setup editor WDINST proposes a default setup.
  • the setup program was already configured with the wizard or with WDINST and you have:
    • generated the setup program.
    • saved the description of the setup program ("<ApplicationName>.WDF" file).
The setup editor WDINST automatically retrieves all the options specified during the last setting.

No setting was performed

If the setup program of the current application was never configured before, the setup editor WDINST proposes a default setup with the following parameters:
  • the files to install correspond to the files found in the "EXE" directory of the project.
  • no group of files is created.
  • no component is created.
  • the setup will be a standard setup (single computer).
  • the shortcut of the executable will be created in the "Start" menu and on the desktop of the setup computer.
  • the user will be able to start the application at the end of setup.
  • "French" and "English" are supported.
  • the appearance of the setup program corresponds to the default appearance (blue gradient background).
  • no slide will be displayed.
  • no license will be displayed.
  • no "Readme" file will be proposed.
  • the summary of the setup will be displayed before the setup is started.
  • the automatic modification of the data files will be performed if necessary.
  • if the application is associated with a HyperFileSQL database, the HyperFileSQL optimizer will be installed.
  • the backup of the replaced files is proposed to the users.
To generate the setup program of the current application, select "Setup .. Generate".

The setup program was already configured

If the setup program of the current application was already configured, the setup editor WDINST retrieves all the options specified during the last setting.
To generate the setup program of the current application, select "Setup .. Generate".
Customizing the default setup program: the different steps
The setup editor WDINST is used to:
  • manage the files to install and find out the main characteristics of these files.
  • configure the setup program to generate (type of setup, interface, distribution medium, ...).
  • customize the features proposed by the setup program (start the setup program in several languages, run a command line at the end of setup, ...).
The default setup program can be customized in several steps:
Note: These steps do not necessarily have to be performed in this order. All the steps (except for the generation of the setup program) are optional.
