I have a Suite project with a number of parcels or installers in it. They are a combination of PRQs, MSI installers, and setup.exe files.
I would like to use path information in one or more of the individual MSI parcels as data for properties in the suite project. This data can be variable so I need to get the values and use them at runtime.
I know you can set up your feature tree using a complicated Parcel GUID:PackageCode combination but I don't see any way to retrieve directory entries or properties from parcels.
What I will be using this data for is to set Suite ARP properties such as the Readme link. I can get this information from reading the registry. Would an Installscript Event be able to accomplish this for me? And what is involved in making an event? I am used to making CAs in Basic MSI projects but not anything similar in Suite UI projects. I see that I have access to the functions:• SuiteFormatString • SuiteGetProperty • SuiteLogInfo • SuiteResolveString • SuiteSetProperty
however I do not see any property to change that would set the ARP Readme entry.
