Customizing Your Installation
Customize Reflection to specify the way you want it to install, look, and act on the end user's computer. Using the tools provided, you can:
- Create transforms to customize the installation
Because multiple transforms can be created for a given install package, you can create customized installations for separate departments or groups of users, each represented in a transform file.
- Create companion install packages and install them
By creating companion installations, you can install files that configure Reflection, or any additional files that are useful to your organization. If you want to install these files with Reflection, you can add one or more companion packages to your initial installation. You can also create and install packages at any time after the initial installation. Companion packages show up as independent entries in the Windows list of installed applications, and can be installed or uninstalled independently of Reflection. This means that you can upgrade Reflection without removing these customized files.
Because the transforms and companion install packages adhere to MSI standards, these files can be used in conjunction with Active Directory, SMS, or any other Microsoft Installer-compatible deployment tool.
