WixSharp Version

Mar 3 at 7:29 AM

I am trying to work out how I can set the version number in code and am not clear how to do it.
I want to generate two MSIs so the second one can upgrade the first one.

So in the sample code I want to generate two MSIs. MSI1 and MSI2. MSI2 will then upgrade MS1.

How can I change the code to make it work?


using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;

using WixSharp;

Hi Wards,

You need to have a look at MajorUpgrade sample from the downloadables.

Please note that the project has been migrated to https://github.com/oleg-shilo/wixsharp.
