Thanks, I'll give it a go. This is the first time I've ever used the app, so I'll have to trial and error a bit. One thing though, about creating the zip file... I'll need to include my dll with RegAsm.exe within the install process. I've read the bit in the documentation about the special configuration using an ISS file, but I admit to being a novice, so much isn't very clear to me as yet. Should I include the dll and RegAsm.exe within the same zip folder as the scripts, or should there be a subfolder for this?

Thanks for the help,

Make sure you have the current JSX (May 31, 2007), and check the
"Merge" section of the documentation.  There are two possible approaches
to do what you want.  One is to select the Merge radio button in the JSX
Installer dialog and check Guide Installation in the Packager dialog.
Then, default.jss in the .zip archive should get merged with the user's
default.jss and recompiled.  In this case, the new default.jss would get
appended to the end of the existing one.

A second approach is to name your script file anything you like, not
necessarily default.jss.  On the first line of the file, put the
following text:
Merge "Default.jss"

Suppose your file is called def.jss.  Then JSX will add the following
line to the bottom of the existing default.jss:
use "def.jsb"

I can see in the doc how to designate an app.exe, and reference a name within the configNames.ini to associate the scripts being installed during a merge, but how can you merge into Default.jsb?

I'm building an app that needs to be globally accessible, so I'll need to merge the script jsb and jkm files into the default script set. Preferably, using the Use "module.jsb" syntax to do so for simplicity.

Is there a way to do this using the script installer?
