Is it Possible To Exclude Build Warnings?

Jump to solution

Hi there,

I'm wondering if there is a way to prevent or block build warnings from the build output window.  Why you ask.   We had to add some Dynamically Linked files to our install, but this is an application that is only delivered via Major Upgrade and we do not Small Update/Patch it. 

The warning I would like to exclude for this project only, if possible is:

ISDEV : warning -6487: If you intend to distribute this upgrade as a patch, you should author the 'Patch Optimization' setting on the Advanced Settings panel of the Release Wizard.

Any info appreciated!

Maybe I should have actually tried it first.  The per project method of adding a record to the InstallShield table doesn't seem to work/prevent the error from being displayed in the output.

The only warning to be skipped is 6487.

UPDATE:  I neglected to use the hyphen with the warning number.  The value in the InstallShield table should be -6487.  I didn't pay enough attention to this important detail contained in the information linked.
