Cannot find REINSTALLMODE

I am using Installshield LE with Visual Studios 2013 and cannot find how to set the REINSTALLMODE. Can someone please give me a step by step on how to set the REINSTALLMODE through visual studios?

Hi,

You will need to pass the property in as a command line parameter during run time.
Unfortunately, LE does not have the functionality to pass in the property from the wrapper or edit properties before build like Professional edition or above.

Sad. So are you able to pass it in through the Command with LE, or are you saying that it isn't possible anymore to set the re-install mode?

You can still pass it in as a command line parameter when running the setup.
You just cannot include it in the wrapper and let it be passed in automatically.

Re: Cannot find REINSTALLMODE

Do you mind assisting me or pointing me to the right page as to how to add this to the command line of the setup file with Visual Studios?

It will be something like:
Setup.exe /v"REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=vomus"

Cannot find where to add the commandline to my setupe.exe

I cannot find where inside of visual studios installshield to add the command line. Could you please give me some details as to how to find it? It isn't in the release --> setup.exe tab, and I cannot find out where else it would go.

Thanks for your help!

Re: Cannot find REINSTALLMODE

There is no command line field for the limited edition to pass the parameter from the setup.exe wrapper to the MSI in the limited edition.
You will need to pass in the parameter when you run the setup.exe through the command prompt or distribution programs.

Re: Cannot find REINSTALLMODE

Dang, that is very frustrating. So I am running the active x within an . Do you know if there is a way to add those parameters to the tag?

The reason I am needing to do this is, even though the file updates, it isn't replacing the dll's. No matter what I've done, it continues to keep the same dll's even though they are outdated.
