with option "Keep external" one can add a file to Setup which is not integrated to the setup.exe. Instead, it could be located in a separate folder of the installation media.
Unfortunately, when running such a designed setup.exe from a location where this separate folder with its file is not present, setup terminates installation process with an error message, that the file is missing.
In my case its the help file (chm) which is very big (35 MB), so that I do not want to integrate it into setup. The setup should be as small as possible to be able to send by mail. Customers who already have an installation with an installed helpfile, need not a 35 MB helpfile where nothing has changed.
So the question is, can I somehow tell the setup, to ignore the missing external file, and run to end quite normally ?
