if the url of the binary packages referenced from the <installerinformation> xml responds with a server side redirect will the installer follow that redirect?

Furthermore, will it follow redirects recursively, ie. if there is a chain of redirects?

InstallBuilder does support redirects for both autoupdate utility as well as <httpGet> and <httpPost> actions.

It does support it recursively, but has a limit of redirects. Currently it is a total of 10 redirects, after which the download is aborted with an error.
