Ok, so I am really struggling to understand parts of the installer.ini documentation. I do have issues with reading comprehension, so please be patient.
- What is the purpose of AdditionalInstallSize? Is it the size of the installer downloaded? Is this the compressed or uncompressed files once extracted? Also what would you do in the case where you didn't want it to be version specific (like Calibre)? That program's installer.ini has an AdditionalInstallSize=122880. It says "AdditionalInstallSize is used to specify the size of the files that will be added to the files contained within the installer. The entry should be a number only and be in KB". I'm sorry, I'm just not understanding it. I'm thoroughly confused.
- How do you handle a filename to be downloaded that can change? For example, let's say I wanted to create a launcher that downloads the shareware program WinRAR. When they come out with a new version, their naming scheme is like wrar420.exe (wrar + the version number). Is there a way to get the installer to look for the latest one, or would I have to list the filename explicitly?
Any help would be appreciated. I have a few more portable apps I want to release, and at least 1 launcher, but I seem to be running into issues.
