Directories


Project Directory Location

This preference defines the location of your InstallJammer projects.  You can choose to save your projects anywhere, but InstallJammer will use this property by default as a location for new projects when they are created.


Custom Theme Directory Location

This preference defines where InstallJammer will look for custom themes that you may have for your version of InstallJammer.  The directory specified must contain a subdirectory for every theme, and the theme will be added to the list of available themes when creating a new project.


Custom Action Directory Location

This preference defines where InstallJammer will look for custom actions that you may have for your version of InstallJammer.  The directory can contain any number of .action files that will then appear in the list of available actions under the category Custom Actions.


Custom Condition Directory Location

This preference defines where InstallJammer will look for custom actions that you may have for your version of InstallJammer.  The directory can contain any number of .condition files that will then appear in the list of available conditions under the category Custom Conditions.



External Programs


File Explorer

This preference defines the default file explorer when using the explore features in InstallJammer.  If one is not specified, InstallJammer will attempt to use the default file explorer for your system.  On Windows, InstallJammer will always use Windows Explorer unless specified.  On UNIX systems, InstallJammer will attempt to determine the best file explorer based on your window manager.


Help Browser

This preference defines the web browser you wish to use when browsing InstallJammer's help documentation.  By default, InstallJammer will attempt to find the best browser based on your system environment and a list of acceptable browsers to InstallJammer.  Almost any web browser should work properly.


Editor

This preference defines an external editor program to use when editing long text within the install builder.  If an editor is specified, clicking the "..." button to edit a text field will save the text to a temporary file and then launch the external editor on that file.  The builder will then watch the file for changes and repopulate the project with the new data.  Note that InstallJammer will not create a console window for editing with a text-based editor.



InstallJammer Update


Check for updates to InstallJammer on startup

If this preference is true, InstallJammer will check for new versions of itself everytime it is started.  If it is false, you must check for updates by yourself using the Check for Updates Now button on this tab.


Use a proxy server

If true, InstallJammer will use an HTTP proxy server when checking for its updates.


Proxy Host

The hostname for the proxy server to use.


Proxy Port

The port for the proxy server to use.
