<PackageFiles> Element (Bootstrapper)

The PackageFiles element contains PackageFile elements, which define the installation packages executed as a result of the Command element.

<PackageFiles
    CopyAllPackageFiles
>
    <PackageFile 
        Name
        HomeSite
        CopyOnBuild
        PublicKey
        Hash
    />
</PackageFiles>

The PackageFiles element has the following attribute.

Attribute

Description

CopyAllPackageFiles

Optional. If set to false, the installer will only download files referenced from the Command element. If set to true, all files will be downloaded.

If set to IfNotHomesite, the installer will behave the same as if False if ComponentsLocation is set to HomeSite, and otherwise will behave the same as if True. This setting can be useful to allow packages that are themselves bootstrappers to execute their own behavior in a HomeSite scenario.

The default is true.

The PackageFile element is a child of the PackageFiles element. A PackageFiles element must have at least one PackageFile element.

PackageFile has the following attributes.

Attribute

Description

Name

Required. The name of the package file. This is the name that the Command element will reference when it defines the conditions under which a package installs. This value is also used as a key into the Strings table to retrieve the localized name that tools such as Visual Studio will use to describe the package.

HomeSite

Optional. The location of the package on the remote server, if it is not included with the installer.

CopyOnBuild

Optional. Specifies whether the bootstrapper should copy the package file onto the disk at build time. The default is true.

PublicKey

The encrypted public key of the package's certificate signer. Required if HomeSite is used; otherwise, optional.

Hash

Optional. An SHA1 hash of the package file. This is used to verify the integrity of the file at install time. If the identical hash cannot be computed from the package file, the package will not be installed.

The following code example defines packages for the .NET Framework redistributable package and its dependencies, such as the Windows Installer.
