Release Flags on Features

Hi,

Suppose I have these release flags:

32BIT

64BIT

PRODA

PRODB

Now suppose I want to show the feature only for for 32BIT PRODA. If I use 'Release Flags' on the feature of  32BIT,PRODA I will get the feature for any 32 that in the How do I specify

Re: Release Flags on Features

Looks like this will work to exclude the feature from the FST for PRODB.

Release Flags 32BIT

Condition Level:  0  NOT PRODA

Re: Release Flags on Features

Hi @rguggisberg 

When you build your release, you can include and exclude features, InstallShield prerequisites, and chained .msi packages depending on the type of release. For example, if you are creating a trial version of your product and do not want to include all the features in the build, you can flag features and then specify those flagged features under the product configuration or the release.

Re: Release Flags on Features

Hi @banna_k,

Yes, it is easy to include features... but not to exclude features

Suppose I have these release flags:

32BIT

64BIT

PRODA

PRODB

PRODC

And these releases:

PRODA_32 with Flags 32BIT, PRODA

PRODA_64 with Flags 64BIT, PRODA

PRODB_32 with Flags 32BIT, PRODB

PRODB_64 with Flags 64BIT, PRODB

PRODC_32 with Flags 32BIT, PRODC

PRODC_64 with Flags 64BIT, PRODC

Now suppose I want to show the feature only for 32BIT PRODA. If I use 'Release Flags' on the feature of  32BIT,PRODA I will get the feature for any release with 32BIT flag and any release with PRODA flag. You get the idea... I have multiple releases and I want to now have 32 and 64 bit for each. How do I specify this?

Thanks
