Hi, I've a mix of files that I'm trying to install, some in the Unix text mode and others in the DOS text mode. Is there a project-wide property that I can use to setup text mode of the installed files based on the destination platform? I understand there are "unix2dos" and "dos2unix" built-in actions, but that assumes I'm aware of which files are of which mode and where they can be found, which is not always possible in my case. Besides, I want to use any built-in feature to minimize overhead on account of conversions.

InstallBuilder treats all files as binary and does not convert newline characters when unpacking the files.
If you do not want to use the built-in actions, and to avoid convertion by installer itself, it may be best to simply create two sets of files when building the installer - and package different files for Windows and different for Unix systems.
You can then use
