Testing an Installer After Customizing the Siebel.ini File
After you customize the siebel.ini file, you should test the installer.
To test an installer
- Finish modifying the siebel.ini file.
- Run install.exe from the
directory on the network installation server.
- Repeat Step 1 and Step 2 until the siebel.ini file is configured to achieve the desired installation.
- Test any self-extracting archive file you create.
NOTE: If you test a self-extracting archive file on the same machine on which you generated the package, the installer will overwrite the Siebel client directory. To install to a different location, specify an installation directory using the
RootDirectory parameter in the siebel.ini file. Or, run the archive file on a different machine.
