QT Installer Framework - Where to start with additional installation steps?
Helix Easy last edited by Helix Easy
I'm playing around with the Installer Framework and after reading the documentation up and down I'm just struggling with the following problem: I need to install an additional package into a separate, always fixed directory. So far this is working as described on this example. But the point is, I need to do some preparation steps before the installation like creation of a backup or wipe out some obsolete old files but I can't find a hint on how to do this. How could this be implemented?
I already tried to add a copy step before the line
component.addOperation("Extract", archive, "@TargetDir@/extractToAnotherPath");but this line never seems to be executed.
In general I miss a more detailed documentation on how the installer scripting is working in detail. Any link to some kind of HowTo or Tutorial is much appreciated!
Thx a lot in advance,
