We Can cusomise the rules by going into Component rules -> modify

  • Add all executable files to their own components
  • Add all .TLB files to their own components
  • Group Matching .HLP and .CNT files together
  • Group matching .CHM and .CHI files together
  • Put registry keys associated with files or components in matching component
  • Put Current User registry keys in their own component
  • Put non-Current User registry keys in their own component
  • Group all non-executable files to their own component
  • Name new non-advertised shortcuts by destination directory
