Explanation of the Properties/Actions:

  • Name: This is the name of the extension, which will be shown when the InformUser-Action is selected.
  • Version: The Version of the extension. If the embedded extension has a higher version it will be reinstalled/executed/forced again, even if the Install-Action is Once.
  • Type: The type of the extension – Details see below.
  • Start File: The file which should be executed/loaded after the extension is installed.
  • Data: The actual extension. This MUST BE a ZIP-File containing all the extension data.
  • Action->Install: Defines if the extension should be installed automatically. Always means the extension will be overwritten every time the modules is opened (e.g. a skin will be reseted to its default state if the user has made changes).
  • Action->Force: Defines if the extension should be enabled automatically. Once means it will be only enabled after the installation, but the user can disable it again.
  • Action->InformUser: Defines if the user should be informed of the installation/enabling of the extension. Once means the user will only be informed after the installation, Always means the user will be informed every time the learning module is opened.
