Software Deployment Question

Setting Overwrite option on individual files?

03/27/2004 3039 views
Does anyone know if there is a way to specify an "overwrite = no" attribute to an installed file within MSI (I'm using Wise Package Studio v5), similar to the isolation feature on System files/Merge modules but without having to go down the 'seperate/conditional feature route' ??

Thanks, Steve.

Add your files to a component and right click and go to to details.

You can change the setting by ticking "Never overwrite if key path exists" at the component level.

None of the files will be overwritten.
