Problem generating an Installer with Qt Installer Framework wich acts like an Hybrid Installer



  • I am trying to create an installation routine using Qt Installer Framework.

    From my point of view, there are 3 possibilities for the installation routine:

    • Offline Only (will never be able to access servers to get updates)
    • Online (Access to the repository and can be updated.)
    • OnlineOnly (Access to the repository and can be updated. If the initial installation is used, the packages are loaded from the repository)

    However, what I want to implement is an installer that works offline and additionally has access to the repositories. So the installer should install initial with the provided packages in the Installer and after that can also access the update repositories.

    In the documentation
    http://doc.qt.io/qtinstallerframework/ifw-tools.html
    It can be seen that the hybrid function is still a TODO.

    Can someone help me whether such an installer is currently implementable?

    I look forward to your answers
    Thank you very much

    Hi,

    That's a question I'd recommend bringing on the interest mailing list. You'll find there Qt Installer Framework developers/maintainers. This forum is more user oriented.
