PortableApps.comInstaller suggestion ane one question?

hi
question?
what is this code in PortableApps.comInstaller.nsi?
;7z Usage
!ifdef AdvancedExtract1To
.......
......
!ifdef CustomCodeUses7zip
!if CustomCodeUses7zip = true <======= this
!define bolUses7Zip true
!endif
!endif
......
!endif
;;;
"CustomCodeUses7zip" is not variable. maybe !if ${CustomCodeUses7zip} == true
suggestion:
if it is possible Please define CustomCodeUsesInno for InnoExtract Usage

thanks

Define

Those are compile-time directives, not run-time code or variables. They are coded correctly.

The only reason the 7z is a custom code option at present is for an installer that has to recompress stuff to 7z internally to fit under the 2GB file size limit. Is there something missing from the current Inno handling that you need added to the base installer?

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

thanks

thanks
yes
Sometimes when extracting INNO file manually, it gives a message that there are double files
I want to add the following two parameters
-a -y
for example:
nsExec::Exec `"$INSTDIR\InnoExtractTemp\innounp.exe" -x -d"$INSTDIR\${DownloadInnoExtractTo}" "$DOWNLOADEDFILE" -a -y`
and also not works
when I set "RemoveAppDirectory=false" in installer.ini
I want to upgrade just one or two files (not all of them) inside App\Appname .
[MainDirectories]
RemoveAppDirectory=false

Will Add

I'll add in -y to the next release as that should have been there already. Does -a just do a single copy if there are two in an installer?

Duplicates?

What about the duplicate files? Do you know how -a handles it? Just overwrite with the second occurrence, which is I think how 7-Zip's command line does it?
