Installer2Go / wItem Installer Action

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

This action creates a step to compile an Installer2Go / wItem Installer project file.  From the inputs, the wItem Installer / Installer2Go command-line is constructed and called when the action is built, and any log output is captured to the log view and file.


This action has been tested with Installer2Go and wItem Installer version 4 and may also work with other versions.


Project filename: Specifies the project file to compile (required).


Output folder: Specifies the build output folder (optional). If not specified, the output folder from the project is used.


Property names/values: Defines property name-value pairs in the project file (optional).  Enter a variable name and value in the edit fields, and click Insert to add to the list.  Select an item in the list to update its value or delete it from the list.


Additional command-line options: This option can be used to specify additional flags to pass to the Installer2Go / wItem Installer compiler.  See Command Line Builder in the Installer2Go / wItem Installer help index for the available options.


Override compiler executable filename: If this field is empty, the action automatically locates the Installer2Go / wItem Installer command-line executable.  This can be overridden by specifying the executable filename here.


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.
