Installing multiple custom packages

Hello  :D

I have a bunch of packages (50+) that I would like to install in the IDE and I can't use the "Open Package File" menu item because there's just too many of them.

Is there a way I can install them all at once? Each is in its own separate directory with *.lpk

I appreciate any help, thank you.

wp:
Create one more package and add all the packages to it that you want to install. Then install this "all-in-one" package only - it should install the other packages as well.

That's awesome, didn't know it can recursively install subpackages, but how would I add them exactly? I have created a new package, tried adding all the *.lpk files for all packages using "Add -> Add Files from File System" but it adds them as text and nothing gets installed as a result.

wp:
No, you must add then via "New requirement". This opens the "New requirement dialog"; in its package list you can select several packages at once by CTRL- and/or SHIFT-clicking. At least, that's the way I remember when I did this for the JVCL packages.

Well that's where the issue is, my packages do not appear in the list because they are in a local custom directory. If I use the requirement option I'm stuck with "Local" already installed packages or "Online" ones.
