ADDDEFAULT property

The value of the ADDDEFAULT property is a list of features delimited by commas, which are to be installed in their default configuration. The features must be present in the Feature column of the Feature Table. To install all features in their default configurations, use ADDDEFAULT=ALL on the command line.

A feature listed in the ADDDEFAULT property is installed in the same installation state as if the user requested an installation-on-demand of the feature. The state is determined by the bits that are set for the feature in the Attributes column of the Feature Table, and which bits are set for the feature components in the Attributes column of the Component Table.

Remarks

The feature names are case sensitive.

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.
