You can't. Alaska doesn't provide that. No free agency with Xbase++ 2,0 ...

Nevzat,

There are several runtime parameters that can be set for the Alaska Xbase++ 
Installation program. That includes several destination directory properties 
as well as enabling or disabling individual features, not all of which can 
be controlled through the GUI of the Installation program.

Here is an example (entered all in one line on the command prompt):

msiexec.exe /i xpp-prof.20-00-918.en.msi /qn PATH_PROGRAMFILES="C:\Alaska20\" PATH_USER="C:\Alaska20\" ADDLOCAL=ALL REMOVE=xppenv,xwbenv,comctrls

The above will install the "xpp-prof.20-00-918.en.msi" file and quietly 
(without user-interaction) install all features into the "C:\Alaska20\" 
directory, including the Source examples, etc. with the exception of the 
common MS Active-X Controls and without setting either the Xbase++ or the 
Workbench (Path) Environment variables.

The directory names must be enclosed in double quotes and must end with a 
backslash "\".

Hope that helps,

Andreas

Thank you for that. 

The hard coded installation folders of Xbase 2.0 has been a sore spot with 
me personally. What happens when you apply an update?

Boris,

As far as I can tell, all settings default to the previous installation, so 
there should be no difference when changing the version to a new or previous 
one from within the workbench, no matter where it is installed.

Hi Andreas,
Thank you for your info.
When I run the above command line. It does nothing. It creates and 
deletes Alasa20 dir.
How can I tell to the command line path of the xpp-prof.20-00-918.en.msi?

my below command line did not nothing.
msiexec.exe /i c:\download\xpp-prof.20-00-918.en.msi /qn 
PATH_PROGRAMFILES="C:\Alaska20\" PATH_USER="C:\Alaska20\" ADDLOCAL=ALL 
REMOVE=xppenv,xwbenv,comctrls

If you remove the "/qn" then the install program will show you the user 
interface as well as error messages, if an error occurs, so you might want 
to leave it out until you know that everything works correct.

Make sure that the file "c:\download\xpp-prof.20-00-918.en.msi" actually 
exists. If you use the /qn switch, nothing -- not even error messages -- 
will be shown, if the file isn't found.

Hope that helps,

Andreas

Andreas,

Here's how i install Xbase++ so i can have multiple versions available. 
This is very handy when working on older exe's that are not on the 
current version.

Since clipper, (i can't remember what i did for dbaseII,III & IV)  I've 
always used batch files to set my paths. so, if i wanted to be on version 
2.0 release 644, i used the batch file ver20644 which would set my paths 
correctly and change my prompt to 2.0644-nnn where nnn is the express 
version.

I do my updates from the workbench, but then i copy the directories in c:
\programfiles (x86)\alaska to c:\alaska\xbase20644 or c:\alaska
\xbase20875. 

each version can be in it's own directory & i can switch versions through 
the use of the batch file..

i copy the
cxp20
help20
waa20
workbench20
xpp20

directories.

Please note, i do NOT use the workbench for development, only for 
updating. My development environment is multi-edit and a command prompt.

I hope i explained what i do clearly enough..

Thank you Andreas.
I did the same thing that you say.
