Excute shell script in IA

I just started to use Install anywhere 2009.I have to run my shell scrript code in preinstall task.
Let me know how can we do this.
Batch script run successfully if I write code in Excute script/batch file action but that is not working for shell script.

I tried using excute command but unable to find exact syntax.I can run in post install task using sh / How can run in preinstall task.

Thanks in advance..

Hi Nil

1. Are you writing the set of commands inside the Script box ???
2. Or you want to run the script like: sh ???
Well in the first case first make sure, have you checked “suspend all installation until process completes”…..
And check “show indeterminate dialog” (just for cross checking)…
Print $EXECUTE_STDOUT$, $EXECUTE_STDERR$ in the display to check what exactly happening ???
In the second case go install task->add files
An then ad your file( Select “execute target file” and then add you file….
I’ll recommend second one !!!!
