Project Details View

The Project Details view is displayed within the main program area when an MSI Package Builder project is selected in the Projects view. This view is used to define the data that is used to configure an MSI package being created on a basis of the project Pic 1. It consists of five groups, those are: Product Information, Identification & Upgrade, Digital Signature, Install Options and Information.

The Product Information group is used to define generic MSI package properties, such as the product name, manufacturer, language, etc. The Identification & Upgrade group is used to define the product GUID and upgrade GUID, if it is required. Within the Digital Signature group, it is possible to override the common package signing configuration for the selected project, if it is required. The Install Options part allows you to define the supported operating systems, the required Microsoft .NET Framework version and install mode. And the Information part is responsible for defining support and summary information for the package.

This configuration is stored between sessions and is used to complete the corresponding properties during an MSI package creation. For a detailed description of each option, refer to the Creating MSI Package section of this document.
