Re: Simple version variable

I don't fully understand your question, but you can use the version number in a SQL script by doing a text replacement. See the Text Replacement tab when your script is selected in the IDE. It's best to have some known token for the "Find What" and use the property in brackets for the "Replace With" value. e.g. [ProductVersion]

Re: Simple version variable

Thank you you did answer my question for the scripting and sql portion. I was also wondering about the product version variable that i could use on a custom dialog so it displays I use %P for the Product Name.

so the custom dialog window says something like

Installing %P(productname) %[?] (VersionNumber)

Re: Simple version variable

Take a look at the InstallWelcome dialog in the Dialogs view. You'll see several places where the [ProductName] property is used. At runtime this gets replaced with the ProductName from the Property table. You can do this for any property including the [ProductVersion] property.

Does that answer your question?
