Subject: Can I install all with overwrite, except for one specified file?
I have the following scenario:
If the the files do not exist the installer should install every file to the folder (works perfectly)
If the files DO exist the installer show overwrite all of them except one specific file that I use as local storage.
I have no idea how to do this!
The only thing I can think of is to check if it exists, rename it, install the new one, delete the new one if the renamed one exists, then rename the original back... is there an easier way?
Or do I backup the file first, then restore afterwards?
You can insert another Installation Files command with one file only. In this case, you can specify Skip or Ask action instead of Overwrite.
Also, you can copy the existing file with another name before decompressing files.
