How to create a condition of installing one of two files

Hi All,

I need to give an user a choice of selecting one of two options; depending on the choice, it should add either file1 or file2 (the same target directory and same file names).

How can I do this?

I tried using Features, but doesn't give me a choice - either one or another.

Please advise.

Thanks!

Add condition in the component level. make the two files as separte component and according to the return value from the user selection add the condition (eg: UserChecked=1)

andy928,

What type of project are you using? I'm using InstallScript and with that I unselected both Features (separate features for each file) and only selected them (in code) dependent on user interactions. I used this to determine which formated file the user was given...

I can't really help you much if you're using a MSI project...
