Some license types allow you to build a custom installer that has the license information embedded within the installer. If you do not see a 'Build' option in the License Manager, then your license type does not support a custom installer.
If you receive the 'Invalid Installer' error message while trying to create a custom installer through the 'Build' option, it is likely that you are running the License Manager from the Start menu. Try running it from the desktop icon.
Known limitations when using the Build Installer mechanism:
- The input file (file to base your installation from) and the output file (save your new installer to) must be on the desktop.
- Open the License Manager from the desktop icon (not from the start menu).
