The concept of Groups
A group is a collection of objects. This gives the benefit to group together related objects. E.g. if you want to distribute a toolbox, you could create a group for each tool. For each tool (group) add the objects that the tool consist of. Here is an example:
When the user runs the installation program, the user can select between a Standard or Special installation:
All groups are installed.
The user is presented a list of all groups and can select what groups to install.
