Is it possible to capture the user's input entered while installing an application, so I can reuse these values in upgrade scenario's.

I'm creating an installer for a website. While installing, I'm asking the user some settings, which I'm using to update the web.config.

When the user wants to install a new version of the website, I want to use the settings the user has originally used as default values, but I don't know if this is possible.

Kind regards,

Property values are not persisted. You need to store them somewhere (registry or file). You can use AppSearch&RegLocator to read them back from registry.
