Re: how to del the updated context during uninstall in a file.

Good information, but I wasn't able to add another text file update because duplicate file names are not allowed. I had to create another text file update and use a wildcard name (file*.txt).

Adobe Reader DC Support

Reader DC support for Condition & Predefined for Searches.

backend "file"
path = "[INSTALLDIR]"

Support For .HCL Configuration Files as Windows Installer File

It would be great if a config.hcl (HashiCorp Configuration Language) file could be added as a Windows Installer type so it can be updated using public properties.

Reading & Passing Public Properties From External ini for Bootstrapped EXE Installer
