Change property at build

Hi Community,

I want to change a property everytime I build a setup. It seems like there should be a way to set individual properties at build time. But i dont find a way to do that.

How can I do this? Do I need a Custom Action for that? I want to change the property via script. How do I create scripts, so that they execute at build time?

I'm very new to InstallShield.

Thx in advance

If you're doing a command-line build, you can pass the -z switch to IsCmdBld.exe to create or override a property value. Please see the bottom of the "ISCmdBld.exe" help topic for more information.

I can't use command line because I build over build definition of Team Foundation Server.

The IS project is a basic msi project in a solution in Visual Studio 2010.
