I would like to display the required_diskspace for my components in GB units instead of the default KB units. Is this possible?

Thanks!

Currently it is not possible to configure the unit that is shown in the component selection page.

I have added your suggestion to make it configurable to our bug tracking system. I will let you know as soon as we know more about the issue.

Thank you very much! I am migrating my company's installers from InstallJammer and I am very happy so far with InstallBuilder's features and support!

Can I show the component size in the component selection page by default? I didn't find it. I needed to manually configure the component's name to embed the size. That would be great if there is a switch I can turn on for this. Also can I show total required size (based on component selection) and total available on the component selection page? I don't want to introduce another page just for that.

It is not possible to configure this currently. We will investigate adding this as an option.

As for second question, you can show this information instead of ready to install page. This way you can show the summary with the information about size and any other information. In order to do that, simply do the following in the page:

<postShowPageActionList>
  <setInstallerVariable>
    <name>next_page</name>
    <value>installation</value>
  </setInstallerVariable>
</postShowPageActionList>

You can then use a labelParameter and/or a parameterGroup to show the info.
