During installation, InstallAnywhere keeps track of dynamic values through the use of
variables. Almost every dynamic value in InstallAnywhere, such as the path that a
Magic Folder refers to, is represented by an InstallAnywhere Variable. Variables may
be modified or accessed in order to affect the functionality or behavior of an installer.
InstallAnywhere Variables are the key to any InstallAnywhere based installation. They
allow developers to control the flow of information, and the flow of the installation.
They let developers store information from the system and information input by endusers,
then create rules to determine operations based on that information.
Developers can even output that information to configuration files or other resources
to be used by the application.
