Hi there,


I'm using Wise Package Studio. There are two issues i'd like to ask about if I may. The first is that I repackaged an installation, which went fine for the best part. The install works perfect. Except the shortcut icons under Windows 95 don't display (even though the path to them is correct). I tried the 'adding shortcuts' tutorial on the Wise site, but it just doesn't work for 95. The same icons work perfectly for Windows 2000. I don't know if this is relevant, but the icons use a .ICO file.

The second question is this. I have a package which we repackaged successfully. Everything was in it's place as it should be. But we have a requirement to NOT install some of the shortcuts, but only for Windows 2000. How can I achieve this? The shortcuts are advertised.

Many thanks,
JT

I use Wise for Windows Installer but I think the Idea is the same.

First part of your question.
Win95 and Win2000 works totally different. That's why they don't store the shortcuts at the same place and this is the reason why your icons don't show up.

Second part:
Put your shortcuts into a separated component. Make a condition to your component if the system is Win2000 then not install this component. in WfWI it looks like: VersionNT = 500

Hope helps.

The problem is, that because the package was 'repackaged' originally, it's already assigned shortcuts to key files in the installation. If I put a condition on them for one or the other operating system, it won't install the file.

Is there a way to conditionallu NOT install a shortcut, but still install the file regardless??

I think you could delete the shortcuts and then you could create new ones assigned to your files.
I don't really know how Wise package Studio works.
In WfWI I would do the following:
I would delete all the shortcuts then I'd add a new component and add the shortcuts to it. I would add condition to the component.
