How to set the Default Features with ORCA

Hi,

I've got a Vendor MSI. (SQL Server management Studio) in this MSI the default is that everything is being installed.
According to the windows installer SDK I can set the value of "level" in de feature table to "0"
So the According feature is not installed by default.

But, As soon as I change one "level" to "0" all de features are being disabled by default.

Example:

In the feature table the row "SQL_DatabaseSamples" has a level of 100.
The Property "INSTALLEVEL" is "90"

When I change the feature "SQL_DatabaseSamples" to level 80 (or just "0") ALL the features are being disabled by default.

My question:

In what way should I change the level so that certain features are disabled by default. (The "Entire Feature will be unavailable" Option, red cross )
Or should I look for my solution in another direction?

Thanks in advance!

Set the INSTALLLEVEL to 100 and make sure the ADDLOCAL property has value of the features to be installed separated by ";"

These properties can be passed at command line also while installtion.

If you don't want to mess around with that...

Just find which features you don't want to install ... delete them and save to MST...

This way you don't have to mess around with InstallLevel and possibily stopping the execution of some Custom Actions...

Full install available by MSI - Custom install available by MST

install available by MSI - Custom install available by MST

Thanks, I think I will try that, A bit different.

Create an MST with only the features I want (With Wise Package Studio)
Apply the MST on the MSI with Orca
Deploy the MSI.

I also will look into the solution of Lillude.

Set the INSTALLLEVEL to 100 and make sure the ADDLOCAL property has value of the features to be installed separated by ";"

These properties can be passed at command line also while installtion.

The value of the ADDLOCAL property is a list of features that are delimited by commas, not ";"
But I think this is the best option. Thanks!
