Define the icon for your package when your user installs from the "Software" applet of Window's Control Panel.
Enable "Uninstall" Feature
Check this option and the installation script will add an entry to the Windows Control Panel 'Add/Remove Programs' dialog. Your Application's name has to be defined if you want this feature to work.
The use of dialogs (like "Please enter where you want to install xxx:") is not supported by INF-Tool Lite and standard INF setups. However, INF-Tool Professional offers support of dialogs in both, Install AND Uninstall dialogs !
Ask for destination directory (directories):
INF-Tool also offers support for user-configurable destination directories. Please see the description of Step #3 for detailled information.
This prompt will pop up after a successful installation of your program.
(If you enable user-configurable destination directories, the installation will also ask the user where to install, add overwrite warnings and more, but this one is a separate feature).
Please leave this field empty if you don't want INF-Tool to pop up with such a prompt (or if you don't want the AdvPack files to be included in this installation).
INF-Tool also offers uninstall dialogs to support prevention of unintentional removals of your program: one prompt before uninstalling, one after successful execution of the uninstall process.
Please leave these fields empty if you don't want INF-Tool to pop up with such prompts (or if you don't want the AdvPack files to be included in this installation).
Add "Uninstall" shortcut to Start Menu:
Let INF-Tool do this as special service for your users.
Since dialogs aren't supported by regular Windows 95 / NT's INF scripts, this feature requires 3 newer, additional DLL libraries in your user's System directory: ADVPACK.DLL, W95INF16.DLL and W95INF32.DLL. In most cases they will already be there, since popular packages, like the Internet Exploder, the PowerToys and other utilities are distributed with these files. However, it is recommended that you install them with the rest of your software package when using Uninstall dialogs - just to avoid "surprises"...
Dialog features are only supported in the registered version of INF-Tool.
Support for the Windows "Software Setup" dialog is offered by the unregistered version, too.
