Introducing the Installer Cheat Sheet Series

Cheat sheets serve as great references, offering fast help in different areas of life. A great resource for our development team has been http://www.cheat-sheets.org/, which covers most major programming languages.

Recently, the Flexera team took the opportunity to develop cheat sheets for a few software installer related tasks to help you get your job done better and faster. Below are topics of the cheat sheets we will share with you throughout this series:

  • Common MSI Conditions
  • InstallScript Reference
  • Installer Folders

To kick off the series, the Common MSI Conditions Cheat Sheet gives you some of the most common conditions used in MSI projects for custom actions, features, components, etc. It also serves as a quick reference for most of what you need to know about Conditional Statement Syntax.

We invite you to offer suggestions for additional cheat sheets you’d like to see. Stay tuned to InstallTalk for the next cheat sheet coming soon.
