I would like to know if there is any option to extract some script during the initialization action list. I need to run some script , TCL script, during the initialization action list stage and I need that this script will be available for me during that stage as well as the tclsh interpreter. Is there anyway to use these files in that stage ?

Thanks, Ronen

The <unpackFile> and <unpackDirectory> actions can be used to unpack one or more files to a temporary directory for the purpose of running applications and/or scripts before installation.

For example:

<unpackDirectory> <destination>${system_temp_directory}</destination> <component>tools</component> <folder>license</folder> <origin>management</origin> </unpackDirectory> <unpackFile> <destination>${system_temp_directory}</destination> <component>tools</component> <folder>license</folder> <origin>management/validator.exe</origin> </unpackFile>

The <component> and <folder> refer to component and folder name from list of packed files. The <origin> is name of the file/directory to unpack.

The actions and how <origin> references packed files is documented in more details in Unpacking Before Installation Time section of InstallBuilder user guide.
