Step 4: Configure The Installer

  In the Installer step, you configure all aspects of your installer, most importantly the screens and actions representing the user input and the actual installation. The Installer step is divided into several tabs which are located at the bottom of install4j's main window:
  • Screens & actions
    On this tab you configure the screens and actions in your installer and uninstaller as well as custom installer applications.
  • Custom Code & Resources
    On this tab you configure the location of your custom code for additional libraries to be used in scripts as well as your own implementations of actions, screens and form components.
  • Update Options
    On this tab you configure how your installers handle installations when an earlier version has already been installed.
  • Auto-Update Options
    On this tab you configure settings for the auto-update descriptor file updates.xml that is generated by a build.
