I've inherited a WIX installer project. I have installed the WIX VS2019 extension and tools.
When I view the code of the .wixproj file in notepad I can see useful settings such as:
<PropertyGroup> <Configuration Condition=" '$(Configuration)' == '' ">Debug</Configuration> <Platform Condition=" '$(Platform)' == '' ">x86</Platform> <Version Condition=" '$(BuildNumber)' == '' ">2.0.1</Version> <Version Condition=" '$(BuildNumber)' != '' ">$(BuildNumber)</Version> <ProductVersion>3.10</ProductVersion>
but if I view the property pages of the wix project in VS2019 (or the properties for the file under the F4 key) I dont see any values like this.
- Am I suppose to be able to edit the values of the .wixproj file in VS?
- Where is it picking up "buildnumber = 2.0.1" from; Has someone hardcoded it?
