Installer needs option to conditionally install files

Status: New

Installer needs option to conditionally install files.
In some installs, like a new install, the installer should install a file but that same file should not be overwriten on an update. For example, a database file that is updated by the user will be overwriten by the installer.
The options required are:

  • Install file if not present.
  • Install file or not install if file is modified. 

InstallShield should be consulted for the various options required.
