downloading large files and other installers from a URL during installation

Hi,

I have as InstallScript MSI project  which contains several large files to deploy and some large tools (.exe ) to run on conditional bases. I would like to download them from a server URL during the installation if needed instead of always packing them and making the installer too large to be downloaded.

I tried to include them as prerequisites but prerequisites have present on the build machine and consequently included in the installation package.

Thanks in advance.

Re: downloading large files and other installers from a URL during installation

Hi @chorti10 ,

 

Can you give a try using Web-Release ?

  1. You can use release wizard to explore this option
  2. Enter/fill the required information on Release Wizard
  3. Choose release type of web
  4. Type the URL from where you want to pick files for installation
    1. Select cab specific configuration to proceed with
  5. Build the release and install

Thanks,

Jenifer
