|How to ...|
On this tab your specify files which should be installed on the target PC:
Initially this dialog shows list of folders, where your can place your files:
You can add your files to each of these folders from context menu called by right mouse click:
This menu allows to add sub-folder, file and shortcut.
Important: LockXLS adds to setup package files which you've selected. If you add unlocked file, it will not be replaced with locked version - unlocked file will be installed. So, if you don't have locked file, you should run the Build command first to create locked files on disk, and then fill the Setup Settings.
Note: If you add a folder to the root node Target PC, this folder will be created using path which you've specified.
This way allows to create hardcoded folders on the target PC like "C:\My Data". But, there is no way to validate if this folder can be created on the target PC. You should use this feature only if your product requires hardcoded directory structure.
As a usual folder, this hardcoded folder can contain sub-folders, files, shortcuts.
If your product requires Merge Modules to be installed, add them using Merge Modules ... button.
To select file you should select a file on disk, which will be added to setup. On customer's PC this file may appear under other name. You can change it in the file's properties:
Add-ins: If you are deploying Excel Addin, you should register it on the target PC. Select option This file is an Excel Addin which should be registered ... to enable registration. Your file will be registered in the list of Addins when product is installed, and unregistered when your product is uninstalled.
Add Shortcut command opens shortcut properties:
Add Shortcut dialog offers you 2 options:
Also, you can specify icon for your shortcut. You should provide a path to the .ico file which will be used as a shortcut icon. If you leave this field empty - LockXLS uses default icon. For executable this will be it's icon, for document file - icon associated with this file type.
