|Task of creation installation is so specific and
application-dependent that it is not possible to solve all problems that can appear via
generic GUI. Many of them can be solved by advanced features of InstallitEasy. Here are several examples of such problems.
User should be prompted to close some applications running on his machine before running installation.
It is necessary to change environment setting or autoexec.bat contents.
Reboot of computer after installation is required.
This list can be continued. Some other serious installation generators solve such problems via their specific scripting language. InstallitEasy implements another approach. It allows to call specified function before extraction starts and after installation finishes. These two functions should be available from developer-provided DLL written in any of his/her favorite programming language. Mastering the art of these advanced features is really simple but gives InstallitEasy almost unrestricted power. To tell InstallitEasy that you would like to utilize its advances features, do the following.
Implement extra actions you need to perform in these two functions
(or one of them) and InstallitEasy will call
them for you.
