Hello,

I have a Setup project that contains hundreds of files. I am using Visual Studio 2008 to build the project. By default, all files go under "DefaultFeature". Is there any way in Visual Studio 2008 to specify/change the feature of certain files. I can do it using ORCA but if there hundreds of file, the process becomes tedious...!!!

Cheers,

I'm afraid not, after seeing this:

This sort of thing - whilst still quite tedious - is meat and potatoes to a proper authoring tool. If you're srious about producing professional set-up programs, you're going to have to spring for either Wise or InstallShield. You could then consider using Wix to drive the whole process, as this is an ideal route for build/MSI automation.
