Creating installation steps (InstallShield 2013)

What are the steps to create an installation?

Until this moment, I did:

  1. Build
  2. Compile
  3. Release Wizard

    Q1: Does the building step includes the compiling step?

    Q2: Do I need to do step 3? I tried to make two installations, one with "Release Wizard" step and one without and I can't see any differences.

    Note: In this step, I press next on most of the pages without changing anything. The only page that I change something is "Specify a Release" and change from the default name ("Release 1") to the relevant name.

Hi @ido_stratasys

Steps to create a installation is depend up on customer use case,

In general, we need to have one feature and component and files added to component and then user can configure required shortcut custom actions and etc as per requirement,

Compile to check the error or warning in your installscript code (if you have any installscript code), if you dont compile also, at building project the compile will happen automatically(refer screenshot)

You can also refer below video links for more details on configuration

On Release wizard add a release and build, or right click and add new release under product configuration, there wont be any difference in the build output,

we can rename any release under product configuration by right click and select rename on release or select the release and press f2 in keyboard and rename as requirement.
