Project: For installation projects: Before building your installation project, ensure that you have completed designing and configuring the settings for every element in your project, including the features, components, files, shortcuts, registry entries, and end-user interface.
For merge module projects: Before building your package, ensure that you have completed designing and configuring the settings for every element in your merge module, including components, files, shortcuts, and registry entries.
Once you have designed your project in InstallShield, you are ready to create a release that you can configure and build to distribute to end users. You can create multiple releases for a project and configure each release for a different media type and according to different sets of requirements. InstallShield offers several methods for creating and building a release:
|•||Use the Release Wizard. (This method is not available in Advanced UI or Suite/Advanced UI projects.)|
|•||Use the Releases view.|
|•||Build from the command line using ISCmdBld.exe.|
|•||Build a release through the automation interface. (This method is not available in Advanced UI or Suite/Advanced UI projects.)|
For information on building an InstallShield release from within Visual Studio, see Building Releases in Microsoft Visual Studio.
Tip: Make sure that Windows Explorer is not pointing to the Disk1 folder or a subfolder when you build your release. If Windows Explorer is pointing to the Disk1 folder, the build process fails and generates an error.
