ADDSOURCE property

The value of the ADDSOURCE property is a list of features that are delimited by commas, and are to be installed to run from the source. The features must be present in the Feature column of the Feature Table. To install all features as run from source, use ADDSOURCE=ALL on the command line. Do not enter ADDSOURCE=ALL into the Property Table, because this generates a run-from-source package that cannot be correctly removed.

Remarks

The feature names are case sensitive. If the LocalOnly bit flag is set in the Attributes column of the Component Table for a component of a feature in the list, that component is installed to run locally.

The installer always evaluates the following properties in the following order:

  1. ADDLOCAL
  2. REMOVE
  3. ADDSOURCE
  4. ADDDEFAULT
  5. REINSTALL
  6. ADVERTISE
  7. COMPADDLOCAL
  8. COMPADDSOURCE
  9. COMPADDDEFAULT
  10. FILEADDLOCAL
  11. FILEADDSOURCE
  12. FILEADDDEFAULT

For example:

  • If the command line specifies: ADDLOCAL=ALL, ADDSOURCE = MyFeature, all the features are first set to run-local and then MyFeature is set to run-from-source.
  • If the command line is: ADDSOURCE=ALL, ADDLOCAL=MyFeature, first MyFeature is set to run-local, and then when ADDSOURCE=ALL is evaluated, all features (including MyFeature) are reset to run-from-source.

The installer sets the Preselected Property to a value of "1" during the resumption of a suspended installation, or when any of the above properties are specified on the command line.
