I have been unable to find out where in the GUI to specify the pathname for a component.

In addition, when I build and run an installer that lacks the pathname information, no errors are reported. Should it not be an error when the installer doesn't know where to get a component that I selected for installation?

I'm using Mac version 16.4.0 (2016-04-25).

Thanks-

Scott

I'm afraid I may not be understanding your question. Are you referring to use different files for the main project and components? If so, unfortunately using the <include> tag through the GUI builder is not supported. If this is not the issue, could you provide us with more details about what you want to achieve?

Alejandror, I think you understand. My source/origin files look like this:

Source_dir dir1 dir2 components(empty, but components 1 and 2 are kept somewhere outside of Source_dir)

My installed directory will look like

Dest_dir dir1 dir2 components component2

where the user chose component2 at install time. dir1 and dir2 are always installed, but the components are optional.

I now understand that I will have to edit the xml file to allow this. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something.

Thanks- Scott

Sorry, the formatting (above) changed completely when I submitted the comment. Giving up.
