    Isolate installations of MGC software

    russ.brown

      The default MGC installer paradigm only works well for manual installs.  When you have a mixed install environment (manual and scripted installs), the installer fails.  When scripted, it sees the last installed installer location, wants the isntaller installed elsewhere, and fails.  I suggest that the installer be common code, but the installer and installed data database not be required to be in the same location for all products.  The data for what is installed for a specific product should be stored with that product.

          Russ,

           

          I believe I understand most of what you're suggesting. Would you be willing to open SR for this so we can get more detail? It sounds like something that should be submitted as an Enhancement Request against the Mentor Install Program and I want to capture all the details through our SR->ER process. I'm sure the install team will be interested in your feedback. We can still post back to the community so that everyone stays informed.

           

          Best Regards,
