How and When [] and {} are resolved?


Any anybody knows when in a property {String1} is resolved to the real value of the string "String1" and in a string [Property1] is resolved to the real value of property "Property1"

String table entries displayed in our IDE like {ID_STRING1} NewFeature1 is resolved at build time for the MSI Database (the database differences are relegated to transforms in multi-lingual setups), and at run-time for InstallScript variable use. Property references like [PROPERTY1] are generally resolved as close to when they are used as possible, always sometime during the installation process itself.
