Re: Not able to use "Per-machine if the user is an administrator, per-user otherwise" install type

Hello,

Indeed, this dialog is not automatically added. You need to add it from the predefined list of dialogs. Use the Add Dialog option as you can see in my printscreen.

Best regards,
Dan

Re: set file version and product version using dll file

Hello,

No, there is no command available to set FileVersion.
