hi guys,
the release setup of Installshield is a bit annoying.
I have 2 things i would like to do.

When compiling i would like a shortcut\cmd\ or bat file created beside the ism that contains a command line to run the created msi using certain switches, ALLUSER=1, qb-!, etc.
is this possible or will i just keep using the command line builder and stop moaning?

When setting up the release i would ideally like it to create one folder beside the ism and have the msi created there upon build. Alas i dont seem to have any other option except to use the big long winded path that installshield creates which includes release\product configuration\disk images\disk1\myApp.msi.

its too long!!aggghhh

why not Release\myApp.msi

can someone put me out of my misery!

Why not knock up a VB Script? You could configure it as a drag-drop handler and then simply drop the MSI on to it and have it either build a CMD containing the command line you want or run the MSI with that command line from the script.

You can limit the number of folders your msi is dumped into by changing the 'Shallow folder structure' property to Yes within your release.
