How to add help /description for extra added properties for command line params for silent installation?

for example..

Instead of relying on an additional readme file, you can leverage the command-line interface to provide users with information about the extra parameters available in your InstallShield installer. Here's how:

  1. Open a command prompt or terminal on your computer.
  2. Navigate to the directory where the setup.exe file is located using the cd command. For example:
    cd C:\Path\To\Setup\File
    Run the command setup.exe /? to display the available command-line options and extra parameters supported by your installer. For example:
    setup.exe /?
    Users will see a list of command-line options, including any additional parameters that can be passed to the installer for customization or configuration purposes.

    By executing setup.exe /?, users can retrieve detailed information about the extra parameters without the need for an additional readme file. This allows them to discover and understand how to utilize the available options during the installation process.

    Please note that the format and content of the command-line help output may vary depending on how your InstallShield project is configured. It's recommended to consult the InstallShield documentation or resources specific to your version for more detailed information on the command-line options and their usage.
