View Full Version : setup.exe

Is it possible to get a function in the release table to set the Version number of the setup.exe by myself?

Are you talking about setup.exe's actual PE File Version, or resource fields like

I talking about the setup.exe as PE File Version. Because we would like to get the Version Number from another external program from the setup.exe.

We do store your Product Version number (From the General Information view, or from the Release view | Product Configuration settings) in setup.exe, but not as Setup.exe's PE File Version.
We have traditionally liked to keep setup.exe PE file version specific to the Bootstraps version.
You could read your products version number from setup.exe, it is just not the PE Version info. See the attached image. For this example I have made My Product have a version number of 220.127.116.11.

Thats only work with Basic Msi Projects, if I use an InstallScript Project and create a single file executable the fileversion and PE File Version are the same.

Got it. It is difficult for us to handle this in InstallScript becasue the engine is signed in some cases (meaning our build cannot modify it without invalidating the signature).
I will create a Work Order for us to look at this for a future release.
Thank you for the feedback.

It would also be nice to add our own ICON to the setup as well!

Customizing the icon is supported in the release view (i.e.) 'Setup Exe Icon File'
Customizing the version info was supported by PFTW but is not supported by the built-in self-extracting EXE option for InstallScript. The existing issue # regarding this is 1-C2ORX.

Thanks, I know we put that in as an issue back in Dev Studio 9. I will take a look at it and see if it all works with our Basic MSI projects.
