DBSC Capture Profiles dialog - Settings tab

In this tab you can specify settings that will be used when you import the captured results into an Advanced Installer project.

Options

Parse and Import INI files

If this option is enabled the INI files will not be added as regular files during import, but as Windows Installer entities.

Parse and Import XML files

If this option is enabled, the XML files will not be added as regular files during import, but as Advanced Installer XML editor entities.

Import shortcut files in Windows Installer format

If this option is enabled the shortcut files (.lnk) will not be added as regular files during import, but as Windows Installer entities.

Make shortcuts advertised by default

By enabling this option, all captured shortcuts will have their "Advertised Shortcut" flag enabled.

Detect and replace resources with MSMs

This option is enabled by default and it automatically replaces captured resources (files and registry) with MSMs from the repository. This will happen only if the captured resources match any of the MSMs structure.

Interpret captured raw data

This group filters Advanced Installer's interpretation of captured resources to include them as project elements instead of regular resources. Registry entries and files, which are the usual captured resources, will be converted and added in the appropriate page of your project. For example if you enable “Firewall” option, the captured resources that match the pattern will be included as fireall rules entries in the AppXManifest from your package.

The recognizable project elements are:

  • File Associations
  • Windows Firewall Settings
  • Assemblies
  • Environment Variables
  • Scheduled Tasks
  • Control Panel Applets
