Modify Setup Properties

You can modify existing Reflection setup properties or add your own properties to the install. An example of an installer property is ARPHELPLINK, which sets the URL used by the support link in the Add/Remove Programs control panel.

Caution: Do not overwrite existing properties unless you fully understand how the changes affect your install. Setting properties to incorrect values can break the install.

To modify installation properties

  1. From a command line, open the Attachmate Customization Tool:

    path_to_setup\setup.exe /admin

  2. From the Select Customization dialog box, select the option that best describes the task you are performing.
  3. From the Attachmate Customization Tool navigation pane, select Modify setup properties.
  4. Do one of the following:

    Note: "Public" properties (those with UPPERCASE names) can be modified, but only those properties as documented in the Windows Installer documentation from Microsoft should be added or changed here.
