how to use variables in buildOutputLocation

sorry if i'm in the right place.

InstallAnywhere 2018SP1 question:

I manually set buildOutputLocation in *.ia_xml to use $IA_PROJECT_DIR$

<property name="buildOutputLocation">
     <string><![CDATA[$IA_PROJECT_DIR$\CompassInstall_Build_Output\Default_Configuration]]></string>
</property>

But IA always expands it to actual path when Save.

How can I prevent IA from expanding it?

Thanks much,

Re: how to use variables in buildOutputLocation

Hi,

Have you tried setting buildOutputLocation from IDE?

No need to set it manually in *.ia_xml, just set the required build output path in InstallAnywhere IDE.

Project>General Settings>Project Information>Build Location 

Browse the desired location and build the installer. Build output should be in selected path.
