InstallAnywhere Action

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

This action creates a step to compile an InstallAnywhere setup script.  The project filename can be entered or browsed to, the executable can be located automatically or manually, and the compile options configured from this action.  From these inputs, the InstallAnywhere command-line call is generated and run when the step is built.

This action has been tested with version 5.5 thru 2020 of InstallAnywhere (Standard, Premier, and Enterprise) and may also work with other versions.


Note: If Visual Build doesn't detect that this product is installed when first run, this action will not be displayed (existing steps will still be displayed in the Step panes and will build normally).  To show all hidden actions, right-click in the Actions pane and choose Show Hidden.
