Programatically enable/disable (or turn on/turn off) prerequisites pre build


I have in IS InstallScript project that uses some prerequisites, some of which I don't always need to included when I make a build.

My question is, is it possible using the Installshield COM API to enable/disable or turn on/turn off some prerequisites in a project prior to building the project? Currently I do this for some of the features in the project but I can't seem to find anything in the documenation about enabling/disabling prerequisites. I've looked at the IS project .ISM file and I could probably write some code to manually edit the file and remove the prerequisite but I'm not sure how will this will work or if it's even a good idea.

Any thoughts?

Hi Nick,

InstallShield does not currently support this behavior. An enhancement is currently opened for this and is being tracked as IOC-000043658
