Properties in the EXTRA! MSI File

The following lists some of the most common properties in the EXTRA! MSI file, many of which are used to set default values for installation and global options.

They can be edited in the MSI file, specified on the command line, or passed in by way of a transform file (MST). If installation values are not specified and the installation dialog boxes are suppressed, the factory default values are used.

Note: If you specify a Custom user data location, include also the CustomUserDocumentsPath property.

CustomUserDocumentsPath=path

Specifies a custom location to store user data.

If you replace the user-specific portion of the path with the string USERID, when the product is run by a user for the first time, the USERID portion of the path is replaced with the logged-in user's ID.

UseLocalizedFoldersInitially=
[NO|YES]

Specify whether to use a language-specific folder for storing user data. When Application Directory is specified as the user data location and this value is YES, user data is stored in the language-specific folder under the user data location, as determined by each user's regional language setting in Windows.

_IsSetupTypeMin=
[Typical|Custom]

Sets the default installation type.

HLLAPIOPTIONMIN=
[Shared|Unique]

language=FALSE

Omits a specific language from the installation, where:

DEULANG=German
ENULANG=English
ESPLANG=Spanish
FRALANG=French
ITALANG=Italian
PTGLANG=Portuguese

MIGlanguage=FALSE

EXTRA! includes scheme and macro files to support sessions migrated from RUMBA sessions. By default, when you advertise the installation or install by way of a group policy, these files are installed for every installed language. Change the value for a specific language to FALSE to omit the macro and scheme files for that language from the installation, where:

MIGDEULANG=German
MIGENULANG=English
MIGESPLANG=Spanish
MIGFRALANG=French
MIGITALANG=Italian
MIGPTGLANG=Portuguese

If you omit a language from the installation, language=FALSE, the scheme and macro files for that language are automatically omitted, even if you do not change the value for MIGlanguage.
