Others:

       The buttons on this tab pertain as to what to include in your script and what to do when processing your project file.

The first column of buttons are described as:

Check For UnSafe File: Selected by default. Tell InnoScript to search the Unsafe file for files to not include in the script.

Force .iss Output as ANSI: Selected by default. Tells InnoScript to output the file as ANSI and not Unicode

Use Relative Paths: Not selected by default. Will change all fixed paths when appropriate to relative paths to the project vbp file folder. This will allow you to move the project to another location and have it work just the same.

Use Version No in Script Name: Selected by default. Add the Major version number after the project name for the script file name. This allows you to maintain different versions of a script and application for testing and release purposes.

Run in Safe Mode: Selected by default. Determines if InnoScript will search the system folder (Example. \Windows\System32\)


The second column of buttons are described as:

Include URL: Selected by default. Indicates to include in the script the URL to your website so that users may know where to contact you about support. The URL's are taken from the Parameters screen that is on the main menu (Settings->Inno Setup Parameters).

Internal Installs: Selected by default. This will allow the additional installations such as VC++ Runtimes, .NET Framework etc... to be included in the exe file that will be created by your script. Without this selection the installation files would need to be included in a folder named 'Support' off the root folder of the media you are deploying with your installation. This is where InnoScript will tell your installation to look for these files to install. Not having this item selected would be the preferred method when deploying your installation on a CD/DVD. In this manner your main installation would be much smaller so your updates would be much smaller since the support installation have already been installed.

Scripting Runtime: NOT Selected by default. Indicates to include a version of the Microsoft Scripting Runtime Library installation depending on the version of the OS you are installing upon. This selection can be automatically made by InnoScript if it detects you have Scripting Runtime Files in your project. InnoScript will add the appropriate template for this installation to be included in your deployment while removing the individual files from your deployment. You can download these from our website from the main menu selection 'Downloads' .

Use UNC Paths: NOT Selected by default. Indicates to use Universal Naming Convention in the paths in the script (IE. \\server\share\file_path).


Compressed File Extensions: This is a list of all file extensions that InnoScript will indicate in the script not to attempt to when Inno Setup creates the script. This is an editable field and you can add other extensions to it if need be. Some files if compressed will generate errors when uncompressed, but for the most part there is no need to compress a file that is already compressed thus wasting time attempting to scan and compress a file that cannot be compressed further.
