Localization problem after migrating from InstallAnywhere2009 to InstallAnywhere2012

Hi,
Recently we have migrated our project from InstallAnywhere2009 to InstallAnywhere2012.
As part of our script(not install anywhere), we merge and generate custom_xx(xx is language like en,es,de,jp etc), which should be used by InstallAnywhere project.

As per the new InstallAnywhere2012, it expects custom_xx files to be in locales_Migrated_Configuration (as default configuration name is Migrated Configuration).

But we have seen a behavior during building the installer project.
Just before calling build.exe, custom_xx(under locales_Migrated_Configuration) contains our localized strings which is generated from external .properties files.
During build process, installanywhere2012 generates custom_xx with default strings, which overwrites our localized strings.

You may notice, during build process it saves the project and generates external properties(custom_xx). Can we skip this somehow?

User guide does not say anything about it.

Is there any solution to following threads:

Kindly provide proper documentations for migration from InstallAnywhere2009(project is having external resource bundles)?

As localized strings present in InstallAnywhere project(xml_iap) is referred by installAnywhere during build.
We changed our implementation and added new strings into xml_iap.
Now it works fine.
So the only source of localized string is the xml_iap project file.

Hi bidyapatip,

Kindly please tell me the process how you can localize custom action messages as we are also facing same issue in our project.
