  • Radio Buttons

    I'm new to MSIFactory. Just bought version2.2
    I am installing a group of files with two exe programs.
    I created a dialog that has two radio buttons inside a radiobuttongroup.
    The radio button determines which feature I install. The difference is the one exe.
    This exe has a shortcut (desktop and AppFolder). When I do not install this exe, the MSI still created the shortcut, with a default icon, on the desktop adn and entry in the Start Menu. Of course when I click either Windows cannot find it and offers me to let me browse for it. (Hmm..)

    Any thought?

    How have you set up the shortcuts?

      Radio Buttons

      In the opening window of MSIFactory in the table that list the components I right click on the file and select File Properties. Under the tab Shortcuts I check Desktop and Start menu->App Shortcut folder. Under the tab Component I _did_ select Edit Component and had a Condition. I have removed the "condition" and no longer get the "default icon"

      I now have two list created in the feature dialog started from the toolbar (third icon)
      I have one list with the optional file, one without. Each list ("Complete" and "NOT_WITH_LIB") gets a level 1 and 0 condition. Based on what I have in the RadioButtonGroup. Level 1 -> NEW_RADIOBUTTONGROUP_PROPERTY_0003 <> Control_1_radiobutton_01. Level 0 -> change <> to =. Reverse for the second feature list. I can change the conditions and get to install one or the other. But always the <>, I cannot get the = condition to be true.
      Thanks for the help.
