      Description

      I need my installer to install two different source files (compiled for 32 XOR 64 bit Windows OS) into the same target file. The selection of the source files happens automatically via conditions so that they are mutual exclusive.

      With the default packager, this is no problem. With the MultiVolumePackager and neither of the packages selected, this is also no problem.

      If one of the packages is selected, the MultiVolumePackager aborts with "Unexpected end of stream - installer corrupt?".

        The bug is worse than I thought: The MultiVolumePackager crashes, if there are two packages trying to write to the same directory. They don't even have to try to write to the same file.

        The bug was a PEBKAC: I wanted to install hidden packages and listed them rather early in the package list. As IzPack handles hidden packages after non-hidden packages, this caused the MultiVolumePackager to crash.
