I am working on an InstallShield 2013 Professional basic msi project.
I am sure that this is a basic question but I can't find documentation on exactly how to set a value in my app.config xml file from a value entered into a custom dialog window I created.
My custom dialog box is in my "InstallWelcome" sequence. It contains an Edit Field with a property called "PADERTCENTRALDBSERVERNAME". Now, in my XML File Changes I have my app.config file and in the General tab the Element Name is set to
and Attribute is set to "value", the Value is set to [PADERTCENTRALDBSERVERNAME], the Operation is set to "Append" & the Scheduling is set to "Install"
The Advanced tab has just the "Update first matching element only"
This is the node in the xml config file that contains the value I would like to modify (in red):
When I execute my installation the config file node that I am trying to change keeps its original value of "RHEA\PADERT" but the "PADERTCENTRALDBSERVERNAME"'s default value of "0" is appended, so I guess the property is not getting set when the user types into the Edit Field in the custom dialog box. Can someone point me in the right direction?
