Product install without registry key creation


I have built a product installer using InstallAnywhere. Every time I install it, it will create a registry for the product.

I am wondering if it's possible NOT to do that since I only need a temporary folder for the installation and doesn't want to create any registry entries.

If this is not possible, is it possible to uninstall the product before each install.

Re: Product install without registry key creation

set $REGISTER_UNINSTALLER_WINDOWS$ to false will prevent registry key creation.

From doc:
This variable tells the uninstaller if it should register itself with Windows Add/Remove Programs.

Set to FALSE to not have the uninstaller register.
