"Always ovrwrite" on dynamic file linking

Installscript MSI Project. I was wondering why in "Setup Design / Component / File" i cannot set the "Always Overwrite" attribute on files with "Dynamic linking".

Re: "Always ovrwrite" on dynamic file linking

It is not possible to set any file properties for a dynamically linked file, as described in the following help topic: Dynamic File Linking

To work around this limitation, consider adding the file as a standard static file. When it's a static file, you can set its properties. Then, for the dynamic file link settings, add the name of this file to the Exclude files with the following extensions box.

Re: "Always ovrwrite" on dynamic file linking

Thank you for the answer.

Anyway i have noticed that in "Dynamic file linking" is present the option "Self-Register all files", so i expected that was not a big problem to add an "Always overwrite all files" option. Actually i can deal without it, but may be a nice feature in my opinion.

Thank you.
