Visual Studio installshield - How to prevent files to be removed during uninstall / over-write during install

How can i prevent the files from being removed during the installshield uninstallation and prevent the file from being overwritten if it exists during during installation.

I found this excerpt in another post however, i can't seem to find it for InstallshieldLite visual studio 2017. Can anyone help me?

 

For InstallScript projects:

To prevent the files in a particular Component from being removed during uninstall:

  1. Select the Components view from within the Organization folder.

     

  2. Select the component that contains the files you do not wish to remove during uninstall.

     

  3. Change the "Uninstall" property in the right pane to a value of "No."

For MSI Projects:

To prevent the files in a particular Component from being removed during uninstall:

  1. Select the Components view from within the Organization folder.

     

  2. Select the component that contains the files you do not wish to remove during uninstall.

     

  3. Change the "Permanent" property in the right pane to a value of "Yes".
