Custom Installer Option Selection Dialog

Description

 

When generating the installer file, you must decide what to include in the configuration. This process will replicate the configuration of the Remote Desktop Manager instance currently used, and will generate an installer file (*.rdi). Once it has been generated, the installer file can be used as many times as needed to create custom installers. For security reasons, some settings that may contain credentials, such as Saved Templates, are disabled by default. Enable these with care.

 

The same dialog is used for the Custom Installer service and for exporting Remote Desktop Manager configuration file. Some options must NOT be used for the Custom Installer Service to prevent sharing credentials that must stay confidential. Please read the documentation carefully.

Remote Desktop Manager may install required add-ons automatically when it detects that they are needed (configured in Application Start). If you need to customize the application's installation path of an Add-on, you must perform the modification, then create the installation package. This setting will be replicated in the installer file (*.rdi).
