Controlling Feature Selection States

You can control which feature installation options are available for users and applications to select by authoring the Feature table and Component table.

  • To prevent selection of the advertise state for a feature, include msidbFeatureAttributesDisallowAdvertise in the feature's Attributes field in the Feature table.
  • To prevent selection of the run-from-source or run-from-network states for a feature, include msidbComponentAttributesLocalOnly in the Attributes fields in the Component table for every component belonging to the feature. If a feature has no components, the feature always has the run-from-source and run-from-my-computer options available.
  • To prevent selection of the run-from-my-computer state for a feature, include msidbComponentAttributesSourceOnly in the Attributes fields in the Component table for every component belonging to the feature. If a feature has no components, the feature always has the run-from-source and run-from-my-computer options available.
  • New child features can be authored by including msidbFeatureAttributesFollowParent and msidbFeatureAttributesUIDisallowAbsent in the Attributes field of the Feature table.
