OutOfDiskSpace property

The installer sets the OutOfDiskSpace property to TRUE if any volume that is a target of the current installation has insufficient disk space to accommodate the installation. If all volumes have sufficient space, the value is FALSE. Selection resolution actions use this value to cancel an installation and generate a dialog box.

This property is valid at any time after the CostFinalize action is executed. The OutOfNoRbDiskSpace property status is dynamically updated any time the total installation cost is recalculated (for example, any time the installation state of any feature is changed through the Selection dialog).


Any dialog relying on the OutOfDiskSpace property to determine whether to bring up a dialog must set the TrackDiskSpace Dialog Style Bit for the dialog to dynamically update space on the target volumes.
