I have a product for a customer that fills 3 CD's.

Is there any way I can do this with SB5? In my previous installer it
used to build the setup to one big folder and I could then split it
every 650MB's. When installing it would ask for the next disc when it
had installed the first, etc.

Simon,

This will be feature of the upcoming Distribution Wizard.

Great, thanks Friedrich. Any idea of time scales? Weeks/Months/Years?
I need to know whether to re-build their discs with the old installer
or if I can get them to wait for SB5.

Simon,

Our goal was to make it available this week, but a SB5 issue slowed down
development. We'll make it available next week (and then we are feature
complete).

Great, thanks Friedrich. I can probably get them to wait a week for it.

How will it work? Can I do the install scripting and testing now, then
just have the Distribution Wizard work with it, or should I wait?

Simon,

We use the SB4 disk-spanning method. You compile a single file setup.exe
and then use the Distribution Wizard to split it into, say, 650 MB images.

Simon,
Any possibility that you could deliver on a DVD? Many computers now
support reading from a DVD.

I don't think my customer would go for that just yet. But I agree, DVD
would be much easier.
