I have 3 editions of same product, having x86 and x64 msi for each editon, with slight difference in each. So currently I am using 3X2=6 configuration files with very small changes in each. Is there a way that I can use a single config.xml and pass edition
specific values to it through command line. Currently I am calling something like below from the Target after build in wix project.
InstallerLinker.exe" /Output:"$(OutputPlatformPath)\Install\$(OutputName)\$(OutputName).exe" /Template:"$(MSBuildProjectDirectory)\..\..\Common\libs\dotNetInstaller\Bin\dotNetInstaller.exe" /Configuration:$(MSBuildProjectDirectory)\Configuration.xml
I mean, here you have provided a way to pass apppath. same way can i have custom parameter say /xyz and use it in config.xml as say #xyz. This way I can keep just a single config file for all the edition and x86,x64 builds. Now it is a maintenance overhead
keeping 6 config file.
Or is there any option to create config file dynamicaly?
