Specifies most of the options that you use to create the installer for your application. After you install WiX and Inno Setup, the Installer Settings tab switches to settings that are required to create the installer.
Note The files mentioned in this section are included in the Autodesk Inventor Engineer-to-Order Series 2012 media, with no manual download from Buzzsaw. If you install from the Electronic Fulfillment Image to the default location, the files download to C:\Autodesk\Inventor ETO 2012\Contents\OemInstallSupport\MergeModules.
|Access||On the Start menu, in All Programs, click Autodesk Autodesk Inventor OEM 2012 OEM Configurator Installer Settings |
When you first run the configurator, the Installer Settings tab displays a default state with three pre-requisites.
|Install the WiX (Window Installer XML) toolset...||Click the link (http://wix.codeplex.com) to download WiX, a free installation tool initially developed by Microsoft, and install it. The Configurator uses WiX to create an .msi installer for your OEM application. |
|Install Inno Setup Quickstart Pack...|
Serves as a boot strapper to install multiple products within a single install. The OEM configurator creates a setup.exe file using Inno Setup. When you execute the setup.exe file, it calls the installer for each of the pre-requisites, and finally calls the .msi for your OEM application.
NoteInno Setup is a free installation tool. Windows Installed and WiX cannot call another installer. With Inno Setup, you can Install the pre-requisites that Inventor requires, such as DirectX, C-runtime updates, and so on.
|Download the merge module files....||Downloads and uncompresses the zip file that contains the merge module files to a location you specify in the installer settings. |
NoteThe merge module files are the raw install files that WiX uses to create the msi installer.
|Path to OEM installer support files||Defines the directory that contains the files that the Configurator uses to create an OEM installer. You download this directory independent from the SDK install. You do not use these files to develop an OEM application, but the computer where you generate the installer requires them. |
|Result path||Defines the directory where you create the completed installer. The subdirectories within this directory represent each unique installer that you create. For example, the English x64 installer is in the x64_English directory, and the Japanese x86 installer is in the x86_Japanese directory. |
|Application name||Displays the application name you specify on the Names tab. |
|Manufacturer||Specifies the company name to use when creating the installer. |
|Display version||Displays the software version of your application. |
|Software version||Specifies the software version of your application. |
|Product description||Specifies the description of your application to use when creating the installer. |
|License agreement||Specifies an .rtf file that contains your license agreement. If you provide a license agreement, adds a step in the installer to accept the license. |
|Platform||Specifies the platform, x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit), for which to create the installer. |
|Language||Specifies whether to create the installer for the English, German, or Japanese language. |
NoteIf installed as part of ETO, the Language drop-down in the Inventor OEM Configurator does not exist. The 2012 version supports only English.
|Document types to install||Specifies the module type or types (Part, Assembly, Drawing) to include in your installer. By default reflects the modules selected during installation of the Inventor OEM SDK. Use to reduce the number of modules installed. |
