Add an option to the file adapter to alter cardsetting TargetRule::Target::Transaction

Add Ability To Configure Where Launcher Logs Are Written

We are starting to use the Launcher image to deploy and run Launcher in containers. The Launcher Logs are written to <itx_install_dir>/logs by default, and there is no way to change where these logs are written. So, when the pod/container is...

Install ALL components either as an User or Administrator

On a windows server things might react differently depending on which user with certain rights installs the software (Designer and Launcher). It shouldn't be a difference or the installer must check on having the proper options. We had some diffic...
