In this tab, you can specify settings that will be used when you import the captured results into an Advanced Installer project.
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 MSM 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 usually captured resources, will be converted and added to the appropriate page of your project. For example, if you enable “Firewall” option, the captured resources that match the pattern will be included as firewall rules entries in the AppXManifest from your package.
The recognizable project elements are:
- File Associations
- Windows Firewall Settings
- Environment Variables
- Scheduled Tasks
- Control Panel Applets
