Using command line properties in uninstaller

Mon May 22, 2017 3:04 pm

I'm running the installer with few properties and send a pixel (POST Request) to track the installs, something like:

setup.exe SUBID=12345 CAMPID=62626

its working well, i want to use same properties at uninstall process to track uninstalls.
I need to store the properties in registry? how can i read from registry and assign it back to properties?

Advanced Installer has predefined support for storing properties in the registry. These properties called "Persistent properties" are then used at Uninstall/Maintenance. Please take a look on our article : How do I make the properties in the package keep their values during Maintenance or Upgrade?
These are the steps to create persistent property:
1. go to "Install Parameters" page and create a new property
2. select "Set persistent property" option
